Rihanna has the entire fashion industry shaking in their boots with the release of her first Fenty Collection, making history as the first black woman to head an LVMH brand. But she isn’t the only black A-lister who is forging diversity in the fashion industry. In fact, a groundbreaking number of celebrity collections have been released this year in partnership with women of color -- and of course, we’re here for it!
While every celebrity collection isn't created equal, these MILQ favorites certainly are! Here's a roundup of the celebrity collections that we're coveting right now, and where you can shop them!
Zendaya x Tommy Hilfiger
With the help of her fairy God brother Law Roach, Zendaya has become a full fledged fashion icon in her own right. Just in time for Paris Fashion Week, she announced that her covetable style would now be shoppable via her Spring 2019 collab with Tommy Hilfiger. Tapping into the playfully color and expressive trends of the 1970’s, the collection is bold yet incredibly wearable for the everyday woman. During its Paris Fashion Week premiere, the collection was modeled by all-black models in a diverse range of ages, shapes and sizes -- including 70’s icons Grace Jones and Pat Cleveland.
Gab Union x NY & Co
In 2017, Gabrielle Union added fashion designer to her resume when she premiered her debut collection in partnership with New York & Company. With an average price tag of less than $100 and a wide size range of 0-20, the collab is known to make headlines for its chic designs and easy accessibility. Her most recent collection is inspired by “busy moms who need easy, cute and comfortable clothes “ for the entire family to match in -- including the dog. It features a wide range of chic & cozy separates, dresses, and denim.
Lala Anthony x Ashley Stewart
LaLa Anthony might be known for slaying red carpets, but she has a sporty side that she puts on full display in her recent collection with Ashley Stewart. Realizing the lack of options available for curvy women besides “florals and ruffles,” she designed a capsule collection featuring items that she considers her go-to’s while she’s on the run.
Serena by Serena Williams
Serena Williams is after much more than her 24th Grand Slam -- she’s after a seat at the fashion table, too! Serena by Serena Williams doesn’t solely aim to create pieces that are stylish. The Tennis champion also wants to empower women to feel unapologetically confident and authentic when they’re wearing her pieces. Showcasing an incredibly diverse range of models and style choices on her website, the collection is challenging both fashion and social norms simultaneously.
Ivy Park by Beyonce
Sporting an athletic collection from the woman who claims to rehearse for hours then do a lap on the stair master seems like a no brainer -- especially when that woman is Beyonce. Ivy Park was once exclusively owned by Beyonce but recently, she announced that the brand will be re-launching soon in partnership with Adidas. On its own, Ivy Park was already pushing the envelope of style by seamlessly merging athletic wear with street fashion. Now that Adidas has joined the bandwagon, the brand plans to expand its collection to include sneakers.
