These 3 FOFs launched their own clothing lines… Which one would you wear?
Reba by Reba McEntire
FOF Reba McEntire was once referred to as the “Queen of Country” music, but is the 55-year-old the “Queen of Clothing,” too? In 2005 she launched her eponymous clothing line, which includes office wear, casual wear, novelty wear, sportswear and knit separates in sizes 4-14. She has recently expanded the line to include footwear and luggage. The pieces range in price from $48 to $289 and are sold at Dillards.
“Women should feel terrific and confident about how they look each moment of their lives, and the clothes that we wear play a huge role in evoking these feelings,” Reba says. “I created ‘Reba’ to help women achieve this.”
ClorisLine by Cloris Leachman
You know her from ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,’ ‘Rhoda’ or ‘Dancing with the Stars, you know that this 83-year-old Academy Award winner is over the top. Now FOF Cloris Leachman has an equally over-the-top clothing line. The collection includes straw hats and tunics in animal prints and vibrant florals. She announced the line last spring but it has yet to hit stores or the online marketplace.
“Women of a ‘certain age’ (for instance mine) have difficulty finding things to wear that are affordable, appealing and have some little air, some touch of individuality,” said Cloris. “ What you wear is how you announce who you are and too many American women look like members of a penguin community.”
Betty White for HoodieBuddie by Betty White
First Golden Girls, then Saturday Night Live, now a clothing line featuring 88-year-old comedian, Betty White. Betty and entertainment apparel company Jerry Leigh have collaborated on the line, which was released this summer. It’s unclear how much say Betty has in the designs, which include hooded sweatshirts ($48) and tees ($28) with Betty’s face on them. But one thing is for certain, Betty will be compensated for the apparel adorned with her likeness, available at Hoodiebuddie.com. A portion of proceeds from the line will benefit one of Betty’s favorite charities, The Morris Animal Foundation.
“I don’t know what will happen if I ever see someone walking down the street with my face on their chest,” jokes Betty in a video on HoodieBuddie.com.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
