Fame is as fame does. One of the biggest advantages of celebrity is the opportunity it affords actors to do virtually anything under the sun. In real life, these things are mostly limited to giving to charity, launching music careers, hosting a talk show or starting a fashion line. We love our celebrities who have shown a passion for fashion and whether it is clothing lines, make up products or hair accessories, we present a list of celebs who have dared to branch into the high stakes of fashion.
1. GENEVIEVE NNAJI
Nollywood sweetheart Genevieve Nnaji braved the odds as far back as 2008 with the launch of her clothing line St. Genevieve. After the initial media storm, things went quiet for some time but she re bounded early this year with hot new pictures from the latest collection. While her clothes aren’t exactly selling like hot cakes, we wouldn’t count Ms. Nnaji out just yet. If anyone can make a vanity fashion line profitable, it’s probably her.
2. LIZ ANJORIN
Anjorin has always had a head for business as she combined her acting career with managing some supermarkets in Lagos. The most popular Alhaja this side of town is ready for another chapter in her business life as she is all but set to launch her as yet untitled clothing line.
