kind of look like regurgitated Alice + Olivia. But since Jacqui's modeling them on the site, they look wonderful-- and we kind of want them. Other models-turned-designers have a similar appeal - Carmen and Milla for Jovovich-Hawk, Jayne Mayle, and Georgina Chapman of Marchesa all look like their own ad campaigns. But will you get the same effect in their clothes? Perhaps Kate Moss's "design" adventure was actually the best compromise: She recreated her own clothes for TopShop, in more sizes, vaguely affordable pricing, and a team of seasoned designers behind her. Maybe Jacqui should meet up with H&M... -- NATALIE MATTHEWS
