RiRi's new line matches her personality

No sooner than we gave you the rundown of the best (and worst) celebrity designers around in last weeks Start Style it looks like there are already a handful of new hopefuls trying to make their name in the fashion industry. Latest in line is none other than Rihanna who is set to collaborate with fashion house Emporio Armani, creating a range of clothing that will match her style and personality. A few of the proposed sketches of what the collection will look like have already been leaked online; T-shirts emblazed with RiRi’s face and famous ‘R’ logos, along with distressed leather jackets, low slung jeans, and a set of underwear to boot, however we can’t help but wonder how much the Talk That Talk singer actually contributed to the design process. Rihanna holds no formal fashion training. Not to mention the fact that all the sketches are signed by Giorgio Armani himself. The collection is set to hit a select number of stores worldwide as well as online at Armani.com in mid-December, so you can judge it for yourself then. But if RiRi’s new line doesn’t tickle your fancy then perhaps try Rachel Bilson’s new shoe range. Yup, you heard it right. The new actress-turned shoe designer has launched her own range of footwear in collaboration with stylist Nicole Chavez and shoemaker Steve Madden for the website Shoemint.com. No guesses who the talent behind that collaboration is then...
