Queen Latifah Inks Fashion Deal With HSN
Queen Latifah is bringing her personal brand of beauty and style to HSN. This August, the CoverGirl will launch The Queen Collection, a clothing and accessories line designed for women sizes 2-24.
The actress recently said the new venture has always been a dream of hers. “I’m so excited about it,” Latifah told People. “This is something I have wanted to do for a very long time. I’ve been offered a lot of deals for clothing lines and actually started one that didn’t quite get off the ground but this is like a full circle moment for me.”
The line is actually based off of cool finds Queen wished she had when she was younger. “This is a young 14-year-old, 17-year-old and 22-year-old Dana trying to go shopping and actually finding the things she wants to wear or going on HSN and ordering the clothes she likes because they’re there and they are in her size. This has been a bit of a journey and it’s a really exciting venture.”
She’s most proud of the line’s handbags, revealing that she has a bit of a fetish. “I’ll have on sweatpants and a $3000 purse. I don’t deny myself, bags are the one thing I’ll allow myself to splurge on.” She added, “I definitely want to be able to rock my bag. I figured, if I can rock it, why shouldn’t other people be able to?”
Queen Latifah joins Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey, who both have successful HSN lines. The Queen Collection will be available on HSN and HSN.com beginning August 27.
