You do? Well that's just fantastic, because Avril Lavigne is bringing out her very own clothing line. And, best of all, every garment is loosely based on an item of clothing that Avril Lavigne actually owns!
Now you too can experience the thrill of people stopping you on the street and asking if you're Avril Lavigne. You'll also be able to experience the uncomfortable beating that you'll get when you reply "No, but I love Avril Lavigne so much that I bought a range of clothes specifically to make me look like her," but let's not dwell on that. Avril Lavigne! Yay!
For every fact that you knew about Avril Lavigne – that she's still unable to spell the word 'skater' correctly and that she's married to a man who looks like a Boglin – there's a fact that you didn't know. For instance, today we learnt that Avril Lavigne had probably the lamest-ever childhood nickname we've ever heard. Abbey Dawn. See? What does that even mean?
You know how we discovered that about Avril Lavigne? It's because it's the name of Avril Lavigne's new clothing line. That's right – Avril Lavigne is following in the footsteps of Kate Moss and Lily Allen and creating a range of clothes, perfect for the woman who can look herself in the eye and say 'I'm not afraid to dress like a scruffy schoolgirl even though I'm a 32-year-old legal secretary with a mortgage.' E! Online reports:
The 23-year-old pop star has partnered with manufacturer Jerry Leigh to be the face of Abbey Dawn, a new junior's lifestyle brand, featuring jewelry and apparel inspired by Lavigne's personal style. "I actually am the designer," Lavigne told USA Today of the venture. "What's really important to me is that everything fits well and is well-made, so I try everything on and approve it all." The singer said the Abbey Dawn line would include "a lot of hot pinks and blacks and stars and purple and zebra. Basically, everything I wear."
What a lovely thing for Avril Lavigne to do. After all, there's no greater gift that a star can give their fans than the gift of charging them to wear clothes that are a bit like the clothes she wears. Avril Lavigne knows how to treat people well. When she isn't hawking stringy globs of spittle at them, that is.
The Avril Lavigne Abbey Dawn clothing line goes on sale exclusively at Kohl's, with the products going on sale for July. But if you can't wait to see what the Avril Lavigne clothing line will look like, why not check out The Rubinoos clothing line. We hear they're quite similar.
