Just because Lauren Conrad's clothing line died doesn't mean the era of celebrity designers is coming to an end. As part of her ongoing effort to graduate from a mere rock-star-marrying Oscar-winner to a full-fledged lifestyle brand, Gwyneth Paltrow has teamed up with French label ZOEtee's on a seven-piece collection. "The fashions — crafted in fabrics such as cashmere blends, recycled cotton and wool mesh — are billed to be a mélange of Seventies glamour, rock inspiration and men's casual suiting," reports WWD, adding that the proceeds will go to a charity called Kids Company. Meanwhile, Rachel Zoe told People magazine that she's planning her own line of affordable womenswear under the name (you guessed it) "I Die."
