Good news, everybody: Just because we're in a recession doesn't mean former O.C. stars aren't still designing headbands.

Explains WWD, "The headband venture came about when, earlier this year, Lapidus spotted photographs of Barton wearing one across her forehead à la Axl Rose. This convinced the designer, a former accessories editor at Vanity Fair, that a collaboration could work." Well, it does take innate design talent to put a headband on your forehead.
