Could any celebrity brand be dumber than Goop? Unfortunately, yes.
Rihanna's Fenty luxury fashion line with LVMH is one of the best additions to the high fashion scene in quite a long time.
Just like her groundbreaking makeup line, Fenty Beauty, Rihanna's new fashion line is designed with diverse women in mind, instead of the pure White aesthetic that's usually so prevalent in high fashion. But sometimes it takes a great celebrity fashion line to really make you appreciate just how terrible so many other celebrity fashion lines really are. So we're counting down the top five dumbest celebrity fashion lines of recent years.
These are the Dumbest Celebrity Fashion Lines RANKED:
5. Paris Hilton - Paris Hilton x boohoo
Paris Hilton x boohoo
If a fashion scientist tried to distill the worst bubblegum aesthetic of the 2000s into one terrible clothing line, I'd still be shocked if the result was as bad as the Paris Hilton x boohoo collection. Oh, it's bad. We're talking bright pink zipper midriffs, bright pink not-really-sweatpants, and bright pink shirts that say "Diamond Baby" with chihuahua silhouettes. At least everything is under $100.
Paris Hilton x boohoo
$20. That's all it costs to look just like Paris Hilton in an electric pink, low-cut one piece emblazoned with "That's Hot" in cursive. You might be able to pull it off at a 2000s-themed costume party, but that's only because it's so bad, it borders on parody.
4. Gwyneth Paltrow - Goop
I realize I'm kind of cheating here. Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop isn't a fashion line so much as it's an entire lifestyle brand. But doesn't that make it worse? From overpriced outfits to overpriced "wellness" products, Gwyneth Paltrow seems hell-bent on making people ask, "WHO WOULD BUY THAT?" The craziest part is that I wholeheartedly believe the answer is always, "Gwyneth Paltrow."
Of course it's the yoni egg, because what else could it possibly be? This is a "Jade Egg" that you put in your vagina. If that sounds dangerous, it's because yes, it is. Very much so. No, it will not "balance your hormones" or "regulate your menstrual cycles." It will just get stuck.
3. Kanye West - Yeezy
2015 CFDA Fashion Awards - Inside Arrivals Kanye West Yeezy
Kanye West may be a super-talented musician, but his "hypebeast" fashion is pretty ugly. Yeezy sneakers look like souped-up slippers (of course, plenty of people would disagree), and the clothing is bland at best. But worst of all, Kanye West is a notoriously bad player in the fashion scene, mistreating models at shows and lashing out over industry-standard criticism.

Yeezy's outfits for women seem like a major afterthought, which is especially bad when they're so absurdly priced. For a mere $760, you can buy this gross charcoal jumper, certain to make everyone wonder if you just escaped from an insane asylum. The answer might be yes, because why else would you ever buy this?
2. Victoria Beckham - Victoria
Victoria Beckham's Victoria line is real high fashion with the price tag to match. Which would be fine if it didn't embody all the worst elements of the high fashion world. Not only is everything so clearly designed for one very specific body type (hint: it's Victoria Beckham's), but the super-high-end materials include very real animal skin products like Python skin, which is illegal in California due to endangered species status. Maybe that's why the Beckhams sold their mansion in Beverly Hills.
If you're going to make a handbag from the skin of a probably tortured animal, you might as well make it look as gaudy as humanly possible. For $2,150, what can this stupid bag even hold? Your wallet and a few mints. The gold would look especially nice covered in red paint.
1. Justin Bieber - Drew House
Justin Bieber Drew House
Justin Bieber's Drew House is a cautionary tale about the perils of surrounding yourself with yes-men. Named after his own middle name, Drew House wins the number one spot on this list by a mile. With this "fashion" line, Bieber seemed to take the old adage of "looking good in anything, even a burlap sack" all too literally, because everything looks like an actual burlap sack. Oh, except the super derivative smiley face logo, which also looks terrible.
Honestly, all of it. It's all so stupid. These people look like couches.
Dante Basco Talks About His New Role on "Artificial" and the New Frontier of Interactive Storytelling
Basco talks about his upcoming project and his status as an Asian-American icon, Rufio in "Hook."
Now in its third season, Artificial, the first live scripted audience-interactive sci-fi series on Twitch, has invited actor Dante Basco to be a guest star.
The plot of Artificial focuses on the challenges and consequences of humanizing a self-aware AI —reminiscent of the film Ex Machina, but with the interactivity of the Netflix series Bandersnatch. The episode structure pivots between two different formats: world-building episodes where the audience coordinates with the showrunner to determine what will happen next, followed by story episodes where their decisions are brought to life. A real AI component called LifeScore also changes the music of the show in real time based on the mood of the chatroom, adding an additional layer of interactivity to the experience.
Basco has been a fan of Artificial creator and showrunner Bernie Su's work for several years, and he closely followed his previous projects like The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Emma Approved. Su was even featured as the keynote speaker at the February 2016 meeting of We Own the 8th, an arts collective founded by Basco to support and guide Asian American creatives. Both Basco and Su had been looking for an opportunity to collaborate for some time, but it wasn't until the pandemic that they finally got the chance to work together. When Su asked him if he would be interested in joining the third season—produced entirely remotely—Basco jumped at the opportunity.
Drew Barrymore is making the move to the other side of the talk show desk.
Drew Barrymore has been famous since literally before she can remember.
Coming from generations of hard-living actors, it must have seemed inevitable for her to go into the family business, but her first acting role was in a puppy chow commercial when she was just 11 months old. She has said that she got the role after the dog she was performing with bit her on the nose and she laughed.
Through the incredible career that has followed, she has managed to maintain that upbeat attitude through a tremendous amount of ups and downs, which has made her a charming guest on basically every talk show since the 1980s. Now she's preparing to take a seat on the other side of the talk show desk, conducting interviews on her own daytime talk show, where she plans to "spend an hour every day celebrating life."
