LOL at the Time These Celebrities Had Clothing Lines

We weren't prepared for Gosselin Gear.

For celebrities looking to diversify their #skillz, clothing lines can be really lucrative endeavors. Some have even made bank in the fashion industry. (Diddy’s Sean John line, anyone?) However, for every Jessica Simpson Collection there’s – barf – Gosselin Gear. Yep. That was a thing. Here are just 10 less-than-savvy examples.

  • 1 Mandy Moore, Mblem

    Awww, Mandy can’t catch a break. After launching her knitwear line in 2005, it closed shop just four years later. And the “Candy” singer actually seemed pretty salty about it. She told Women’s Wear Daily, “If I were to dip my toe back in there, it would have to be the right situation… a great partnership that could represent a true reflection of me and my ideas and you know that wasn’t happening.” [/item
  • 2 LL Cool J, LL Cool J for Sears

    His line of graphic hoodies and sportswear folded after only one year. It’s unfortunate, especially after all the money LL probably put toward ads starring his family. [/item
  • 3 Chris Kirkpatrick, FuMan Skeeto

    This is 100 percent true. The dude from *NSYNC who was kind of just there had his own fashion line, and it was called FuMan Skeeto. What the hell does this even mean? More importantly, why did he include tie-dyed shirts and studded denim jackets in the collection? The early ’00s was a weird time for everyone. [/item
  • 4 Heidiwood, Heidi Montag

    What happens when you make a line of mostly zebra prints? It folds after seven months. [/item
  • 5 Jon Gosselin, Gosselin Gear

    Let’s just absorb this for a second. 1. In 2009, someone thought it was a brilliant idea to give this dude a fashion line. 2. It was an Ed Hardy partnership, so it included items like this. 3. This was a thing that actually happened. Thankfully, it folded the same year. [/item
  • 6 David Hasselhoff, Malibu Dave

    David obviously felt inspired to get into fashion in 2006 after he saw a bunch of youths ironically wearing his shirt “Don’t Hassel The Hoff.” Unfortunately, people’s interest in Hoff-stamped attire ended with the one T-shirt, and his line tanked as a result. FASHION TRAILBLAZER. [/item
  • 7 Lil’ Wayne, Foreign Money

    Weezy launched Foreign Money in 2007, and he was pretty excited about it. However, nobody else was, and the line went under just months later. [/item
  • 8 Andre 3000, Benjamin Bixby

    Benjamin Bixby had a decent run in a few department stores like Barney’s; however, the recession hit Andre’s line hard, and it fell off the radar within the year. [/item
  • 9 Katherine Heigl, The Katherine Heigl Collection

    Again, this was a thing that was REAL. Fresh off the success of Grey’s Anatomy, Katherine (who played a doctor) thought she had the authority to make a line of scrubs. Obviously, it turned out A+. [/item
  • 10 The Game, The Frank Pace Collection

    Lasting only a year, The Game’s collection (really a part of his Black Wall Street line) failed to differentiate itself from Sean John. And, as a result, it sunk. [/item
