In addition to acting, Kate Bosworth has channeled her fashion prowess into designing. In 2012, she teamed up with stylist Cher Coulter and launched an accessories collection for JewelMint. The actress also had a super successful collaboration with Topshop in the spring and has followed up that up with a newly released second collection.

The innovative winter collection features sleek, simple designs. The fresh pieces are a departure from the relaxed, bohemian style of her previous collection that was inspired by music festivals.

This collection is fierce.

The style maven worked with the Topshop creative team as a design consultant, and offered her expert fashion wisdom every step of the way. 

In an interview with British Vogue, Bosworth described the thought process behind the project. “The collection is tailored and classic,” she said. “For autumn, we wanted to create luxurious pieces with a strong minimalist approach. Slim silhouettes are cloaked in masculine a masculine shape, staying true to the masculine-feminine balance that exists in my personal aesthetic.” 

Bosworth also served as the model for the collection. Her husband, Michael Polish, photographed and directed the fashionista in a video, where she rocks looks from the 46-piece collection. She pulls off wet hair effortlessly, as she struts and poses in black, white and red ensembles. 

The fashions range in price from $32-$995. You can shop the line of separates, bags, shoes and accessories in Topshop stores or online now.

It seems that celebrity fashion collaborations are extremely common lately. Models, actresses and singers are jumping at the chance to share their unique style visions with fans. 

Our favorite bad girl, Rihanna jumped on the movement, partnering with River Island. It is no secret that the Barbadian beauty knows how to make an impact with her clothing. The London-based high street fashion brand just debuted the singer’s third and final collection. Her first two were mega-hits and this one is sure to be the best one to date. 

“They gave me the creative freedom to whatever I wanted to do,” Rihanna told The Telegraph

The 80-piece winter collection infuses RiRi’s characteristic urban, chic style. The garments are trendy with metallic, camouflage, tartan and floral patterns, yet also tomboyish with denim jumpsuits and beanies. 

River Island CEO, Bernard Lewis praised Rihanna’s work ethic. “She’s an inspiration for our creative teams to work with and we’ve been constantly impressed by the amount of time and energy she’s invested in the project.”

The winter collection will be available at River Island stores and online Nov. 7. 

And stay tuned because another Kate – Kate Moss – has also joined forces with Topshop for an original 40-piece collection that will be released in April 2014. Moss is globally worshipped for her classic, yet edgy outfits. We can only hope that the upcoming collection will include some of her signatures, like leather jackets and skinny jeans.
