The stages of fame come in all shapes and sizes, but one of the most pivotal steps of the celebrity lifestyle is creating a personal clothing line. Nowadays, it seems like everyone (actresses, musicians, and models alike) are diving right into the fashion industry and launching brand new lines with their names attached to it. So it begs the question ... is someone really a celebrity if they don't have a clothing or perfume line with their signature? Seems like the answer it a big fat NO. Clothing lines are just another way for celebs to keep their name relevant, and honestly, it's not that bad of an idea. But some are more successful than other.

People that already have a huge following tend to do very well in their side endeavors, and a lot of celebrity brands become highly-coveted (see: anything the Kardashians do). While many lines, have failed, there have also been some that have turned into billion-dollar corporations, so these celebrities are definitely doing something right.

Some celebs go the luxury designer route, but some have created more affordable and accessible brands that are available for everyone. It's not expected that celebrities would even care about making their stuff affordable for the masses, but hey, people can be surprising! 

Plus, not all celebrity brands are hyped quite like the Kardashian's lines. Some of these celeb collections have flown so far under the radar that we had no idea they even created them. Guess that just goes to show that everyone can have multiple passions! So, without further ado, here are 20 celebrities that have their own clothing lines or collection. Happy shopping!
