Why stop at Hollywood when you can make your mark on the fashion industry too?

<p>These days, it seems like everyone in Hollywood has a fashion line. While many of them end up being complete flops (Google Amanda Bynes' "Dear") a few of them actually do pretty well—and some do so well that we forget a celebrity was involved in getting them off the ground. Click through for a list of some of our favorite celebrities-turned-designers.</p>
<p>Long before he decided to partner with Barneys for this year’s holiday collection, Mr. Carter cut his teeth in the fashion world by cofounding <a href="http://rocawear.com/"_blank">Rocawear</a> back in 1999. The brand, which was later sold to Iconix Brand Group for $204 million, sells everything from men’s clothing to outerwear to sunglasses. The guy obviously knows what he’s doing—the priciest item in his upcoming line is a watch that costs $17,900.</p>
<p>Yeezy's line for <a href="http://usonline.apc.fr/kanyeblank">APC</a> sold out in a matter of minutes, so consider yourself lucky if you were able to get your hands on these hoodies. However, something tells us this is not the last Kanye collection we'll see—this is the guy who apparently invented leather joggers. Just in case you're still questioning his taste, ask any female you know what they think of the 15-karat engagement ring he just gave Kim Kardashian.</p>
<p>Are you surprised to find out that Mr. Suit and Tie himself had a fashion line? Probably not. Timberlake formed <a href="http://www.thebay.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/en/thebay/content-view/W... Rast</a> with his best friend, Trace Ayala, back in 2005. While he’s no longer working with the brand, he’s not done with the industry just yet. Just last year, he teamed up with interior designer Estee Stanley and tried his hand at home goods with the launch of HomeMint.</p>
<p>Considering the <a href="http://www.bbcicecream.com/"_blank">Billionaire Boys Club</a> fall/winter 2013 collection just hit stores this week, it’s safe to say that Pharrell Williams won’t be leaving the fashion scene anytime soon. Probably one of the most successful musicians-turned-designers out there, the two clothing lines that he created with BAPE founder Nigo—BBC and Ice Cream—are still going strong after eight years.</p>
<p>While there was a point in Matthew McConaughey’s life where no one was sure if the guy owned a shirt, the actor recently launched a clothing collection—shirts included—called <a href="http://jklbrand.com/">JKL</a>. While the clothing itself is pretty great, it helps to know that a portion of each sale goes toward McConaughey’s foundation, Just Keep Livin. The non-profit uses the money to start after-school fitness and wellness programs in inner-city high schools.</p>
<a href="http://www.seanjohn.com/">Sean John</a> debuted in 1999 and since then has grown from a small men’s sportswear collection to a full-on lifestyle brand.
Items are sold in more than 400 Macy’s stores nationwide, while Diddy continues to build an empire with his other ventures, like Ciroc vodka and his own cable network called Revolt.</p>
