Kelly Osbourne has become a bonafide star in the fashion world in the last ten years, and it looks like she wants to keep it that way. Whether she’s front row at Chanel, acting as a fashion correspondent on Hollywood’s most glamourous red carpets, or hosting the hit show Fashion Police alongside Joan Rivers, Osbourne clearly knows what she’s talking about. So naturally, the next logical step for any fashion-focused celeb is a clothing line (yes, another one), but don’t dismiss it just yet.
Her line, which will be launching exclusively through HSN on September 25th is called Stories… By Kelly Osbourne, which she had tattooed on the side of her head last month so you know she means business.
What makes Kelly’s line stand out from the rest of the celeb fashion collections is that hers is fashion-forward, and still totally attainable. With prices ranging from $55 to $170 and sizes from 0 to 24, there really will be something for everyone.
Even better yet, she’s completely honest and realistic about her role as a “celebrity designer”: “My mission is not to be the number-one fashion designer in the world. I’m not trying to change or come up with anything that people haven’t already done. I’m just trying to make fashion fair and make good quality basics available to all women.” We can totally get behind that. And when Taylor Swift has already requested pieces from the line, you know it’s going to be a big deal.
There’s a definite nod to her British roots and Goth past, but everything we’ve seen so far still feels very fresh and current. And since Kelly herself has fluctuated between sizes 0 and 16, you know she’s put a great deal of thought into how every item will fit each body type.
There will be accessories too, of course, “I’m working on some really fun stuff for bags, which I like, because I’m not the kind of girl that wants to carry a million things. I carry a backpack most of the time, and I think most women are leaning more toward that sort of style now because we do have to carry more stuff and nobody wants a sore shoulder,” Kelly told Women’s Wear Daily. We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief for that one, right ladies?
We know what we’ll be doing on September 25th, how about you?
