It doesn’t seem like a lazy summer for this trio of stars, who all recently announced fashion news that has my wallet positively humming with excitement (or shaking with fear?). From Blake Lively’s new details on her forthcoming lifestyle brand to Gwen Stefani’s latest collab, we’ve got details all dedicated shoppers need to know.
1. There’s a launch date for Blake’s website/brand.
When Blake cryptically revealed plans for a lifestyle brand, a general fascination fell over the crowd (the crowd in this case meaning my office and girlfriends I discuss such celeb news with). What did it mean exactly, what would be included, and when, for heaven’s sake, would it be here? A Page Six story finally gave us some answers today, saying the site would launch July 23 and include “curated fashionable items” picked by the actress.
2. Gwen is collaborating with Hanky Panky!
The singer/designer/mom took to Insta to announce (and show!) her fashion brand L.A.M.B.’s new collaboration with Hanky Panky, out now and ready to shop here. Expect printed underwear, bras, and tanks, plus a cute bodysuit that could make for smart layering under sorta sheer summer dresses.
3. NBA star Russell Westbrook has entered the fashion sphere (he’s super stylish, guys!)
Basketball fans know the Oklahoma City Thunder star as being talented, personable, and, yup, pretty stylish (check out the above snap of him in frames and a printed shirt talking to reports after a playoff game this season). He’s just unveiled a unisex line of sunglasses, Westbrook Frames, available in Barneys and online. To note: He didn’t go it alone, working with Selima Braun (the Selima behind luxe label Selima Optique).
I’m kind of digging the above frames (the Pasadena, FYI). And in case you wanted further proof of Russell’s style, please check him out below at the men’s Saint Laurent show in Paris last month. I mean, you’d totally buy shades from this guy, right?
