Global superstar and X Factor judge, Nicole Scherzinger, has just announced her collaboration with online retailer Missguided. We can only expect shamazing results from the pairing. Nothing makes us happier than star style at high street prices, so as we wait patiently for a sneaky peak, here are some of our best and worst celebrity collaboration picks:
Lana Del Rey for H&M
To say Lana Del Rey was our favourite H&M collaboration is a bit of a lie, David Beckham’s undies definitely take the spot. However the singers 60’s inspired range back in Autumn 2012 was an absolute sell out, with pieces still in high demand on ebay. Ranging from dusty pinks and romantic florals, the pairing did not disappoint in capturing the stars retro spirit.
Tulisa – Bank Fashion
Nicole isn’t the first X Factor diva to release a fashion range. When Tulisa teamed up with Bank back in 2012, her leopard print packed pieces weren’t to everyone’s tastes but despite making a mark on the fashion scene, T was welcomed back for more. However the relationship was short lived after Bank dropped Tulisa’s “Female Boss” collection after her cocaine scandal in 2013. Poor T!
Rihanna for River Island
Self renowned “badgal” of pop Rihanna has collaborated with River Island since 2013 making herself a worldwide style icon. Rihanna was recently spotted in a gold backless number (retailed at £50) from her recent winter collection, which she wore to her Grandfather’s birthday party. Rihanna is seen as royalty in the music industry, therefore it makes sense that her style icon is none other than Princess Diana! Rihanna was quoted saying Diana ; “ Killed it. Every look was right. She was gangster with her clothes. She had these crazy hats. She got over-size jackets. I loved everything she wore!” Could we see some Diana inspired pieces in her next RI collection?
Kate Moss for Rimmel and Topshop
Fashion pioneer and top model Kate Moss first collaborated with Topshop in 2007. Working closely with Topshop designers they created 40 pieces, including the extremely low waisted denim shorts she was seen kicking about Glastonbury wearing! Kate may be an indie chick but she gave us the best of both worlds when she released the timeless floral print dress. Customers went mad for the look and so did the store’s fellow high street brands as the dress was copied by several of its competitors.
Kate’s endorsements haven’t always went smoothly, her naughty reputation saw her dropped from a Rimmel campaign after drug allegations in 2005. Mirroring the career of Kate is model of the moment, Cara Delevingne. Which brand would you like to see Cara hooking up with? Tweet us @scotcampus with your thoughts.
