Even though some of them are actually cute, we can't embrace most celebrity clothing lines because we can't believe how much they cost. The clothes from Chloe Sevigny's line for Opening Ceremony impressed us in editorials, and on Chloe. But we looked twice at the prices, because $300 shorts? Oh no way. And we'd wear almost anything from Twenty8Twelve, Sienna and Savannah Miller's line, but their jeans go for $300, and a coat for almost $800! That's right up there with Chloe (which we also can't, and sadly won't, buy). Then the Olsen twins launched two brands this year. The Row sells $300 t-shirts and their "accessible" lower priced line Elizabeth & James, offers $250 satin hot shorts. It's Gwen Stefani's LAMB that confuses us most. Prices range from $200 for a top and up to $1200 for a coat. Granted it's adorable, but part of Gwen's talent is the way she fuses a lip-smacking smartness into sugary pop. Girls who love Gwen may think Chanel is cool, but they mostly shop at American Eagle or Urban Outfitters, where $1200 is for rent and not for closets. Karl and Proenza have managed to make successful diffusion lines with stuff under $100 - why can't stars do the same thing? --BRITT ABOUTALEB
