Pam Anderson Designs, Nicole Richie Expands
It looks like Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t the only celebrity recently bitten by the designing bug. Add Pamela Anderson to the roster of Hollywood stars crossing over into fashion. While Anderson recently played mused to and starred in ads for Brit sartorial maven Vivienne Westwood, Elle UK says Anderson has teamed up with longtime friend designer Richie Rich (formerly the face behind Heatherette) to create “a collection of leather free shoes and casual pieces entitled Muse.” Considering Anderson’s style definitely leans more towards the envelope-pushing (think no pants and high heels a la Lady Gaga), there’s a good chance the eco-friendly collaboration won’t produce frocks for the fashion faint of heart.
But at the very least, the collection will encourage Anderson to wear clothes more often than not. At Muse’s launch, Anderson said, “I prefer to be naked, but if I’m not, I want to be wearing Richie Rich.” And, speaking of Richies, Nicole Richie is expanding her burgeoning accessories empire. Following the success of her vintage-inspired jewelry line, House of Harlow, Richie has signed a deal to turn the brand into a full-fledged lifestyle line. According to WWD, come spring, House of Harlow “will include about 20 footwear styles, as well as a small assortment of apparel, bags, sunglasses, belts and other small accessories.”
