Vera Wang is launching her own make-up range.
The designer - famed for her stunning wedding dresses - has teamed up with Kohl's stores to release Simply Vera, a line of affordable and stylish cosmetics. The range includes primers, shadows, moisturizers and lip colors and are all less than $39.50 an item.
Vera says the line is about creating a perfect canvas and adding pops of color, adding, "Make-up should let the real you shine through. Skin is your best accessory."
Last year, Vera - who has designed wedding gowns for the likes of Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian and Mariah Carey - announced she would be expanding her line in 2012 with a range for Kohl's including make-up, skin care, bath and body products and beauty accessories: "As part of my incredible partnership with Kohl's, I will now be able to offer women all over America my own personal regimen for skin care and make-up. It is an easy, light, modern and effortless approach to beauty and creativity. Like fashion, make-up is also transformational. I love the artistry of make-up to accentuate, enhance or create a mood for any time of day or occasion."
Singer-actress-American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez admits that her first foray into fashion was a huge disappointment. Lopez teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger's brother Andy to launch her own clothing range, Sweetface, in 2001 but now admits it wasn't what she expected as she felt "trapped" by it.
"I just felt like I never got a fair chance to do it right. And on top of it, I felt like I was trapped in a situation I couldn't get out of, and my name was stamped on things that I didn't believe in," she told the New York Times newspaper.
Although the line closed, Jennifer didn't let it put her off designing another line - this time she has teamed up with Tommy and her husband Marc Anthony to create a fashion collection with Kohls. They are all confident the line will be a success because Jennifer has lots of control over it.
Zac Efron's girlfriend High School Musical actress Vanessa Hudgens is the newest celebrity face for Candie's. Fashion photographer Tony Duran shot the 22 year-old's Spring campaign for the brand, which is sold exclusively at Kohl's.
"It’s such an honor to be a Candie’s girl... We had a blast shooting the campaign, one of my favorite sets was using the diner countertop as a runway, it’s definitely not every day I get to do that," Hudgens said of the shoot.
Billboards and ads for the campaign are expected to launch in March.

The Hills star Lauren Conrad is launching her third fashion range.
reality star, who has a range of casual wear which is sold in Kohl’s department store, has revealed she is set to create a high-end boutique line, which will have a more exclusive feel to it.
“It’s a contemporary women’s line. Where Kohl’s is a lot of daywear, it’s a lot of basics. This will be more specialty basics, more of a boutique line. It will be at a higher price point. It will be very different.”
Lauren has admitted that while she enjoyed working with Kohl’s, she is excited to be branching out on her own and launching a more upmarket brand: “It’s one thing to work with a huge retailer like Kohl’s and there is so much you get to do, but there is a little more of a thrill of doing it on your own. It’s a lot more work, it’s a lot more stressful, but it’s something I love doing so I’m really looking forward to it.”
Britney Spears only wanted to design clothes she would wear herself.
The “3” singer, who has launched her first fashion line for Candie’s which will be sold Kohl’s department stores, says the outfits she created all reflect her personality and know they are something her fans would be eager to buy.
“I wanted to design clothes that I would wear and my fans would wear. That was the most important thing to me. I wanted to make both daytime casual looks and fun dresses to go out in at night. I met with the design team for Candie’s and Kohl’s, and we started making sketches and designed a line. I got to approve every single piece in the line. It was really a lot of fun. This collection really represents my personal style. I took pieces from my Circus tour and pieces that I wear every day. I love denim, so I made sure to include a lot of jeans. I can’t wait for it to come out.”
As well as jeans, the range feature leggings, skirts and oversized, slouchy tops. Britney says she had such fun creating the collection, she is keen to do another one in the near future: “I had such a blast designing this line and would love to do it again.”
Lauren Conrad keeps her skincare routine simple. The reality TV star - who has her own range of clothes for Kohl’s - says she has now learned not to use too many products on her face and feels much better for it.
“I used to use a ton of stuff. I’ve been going to Kate Somerville for a while now, and through facials and treatments they’ve weaned down my skincare regimen, which is nice. Now at night, I just use a mild face wash and an oil-free moisturizer.”
Lauren is currently creating her next collection for Kohl’s and loves being involved in the process.
Avril Lavigne’s clothing line isn’t the only that can be purchased at Kohl’s. The department store is also the place where Candie’s - Britney Spears’ fashion sponsor - is exclusively sold.
While we’re used to seeing the singer dressed in less clothing, these pics are for the company’s fall campaign…so she kinda had to dress for the weather.
Britney also sports clothing by Candie’s in her new video for “Radar.” You can view that clip plus several other pics from the print campaign after the jump.

While I doubt most people have been keeping up with Avril Lavigne or really given a second thought about her clothing choices, the Canadian pop star is forging ahead with her “fashion” career.
One year after launching Abbey Dawn, an apparel line for juniors, in Kohl’s department stores, the “Girlfriend” singer is close to introducing a collection for an even younger set. The selections, which will be available in about two weeks, will include layered tees, leggings and kid-friendly skulls.
Fashion design isn’t the only thing Lavigne is experimenting with these days. Black Star, a new fragrance she helped create, is due out sometime this summer.
