If you haven't already, now is the time to check out Kim Kardashian's video game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. Apparently the plot line is about networking, rising to fame, and making the money that comes with stardom along the way. Oh, and guess what? It's been out for only about a month and it's already made a whopping $200 million.
Do your thing, Kim.
Those that follow Justin Bieber on Instagram know a few things for sure. 1. The celeb likes to, no, LOVES, to show off his muscles. 2. Selfies are his favorite form of photography. There’s no denying it. Not only does he post a bunch of these gems, the celeb invested in an app that is basically a social networking program named Shots of Me that is dedicated to the selfie itself.
The world made it into the dictionary, after all.
Suits star Megan Markle made a move in the lifestyle sphere with her website, The Tig. The site is described as a “hub” for people who have a “hunger for food, travel, fashion and beauty.” Not to be confused with Goop, this Internet landmark doesn’t have a commerce component, meaning you don’t have direct access to buy Megan’s faves through the platform.
Blake Lively's lifestyle site, Preserve, is an editorial and commerce compilation that includes a fun (but kind of pricey) shopping section, as well as videos, photos, and some snippets from Blake herself. If you have the time to scroll through recipes and suggestions of artisan salts, it's definitely something to dive deeper in. The graphics and color story of the website, however, haven't received the best reviews.
Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop leads the pack of celebrity lifestyle brands. The inspirational shopping and lifestyle website is also the place where Gwyneth chose to inform the world of her conscious uncoupling from her husband Chris Martin. Go figure.
When speaking of her to-be-launched online lifestyle brand, E.D., Ellen told WWD, “I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t want it to be the biggest brand name that you can imagine.”
So what’s it going to be about? From pet products to decor to apparel, Ellen’s brand will store it all. It sounds major—kind of like that Oscars selfie.
Kate Bosworth's app is all about style, which is no surprise considering she launched a line of clothing with Topshop a few months ago. Kate's app, Style Thief, allows you to find the source of an article of clothing you see in photo so that you can then purchase it.
Don't snap too many street style pics. Your bank account might not be too pleased.
