What do Jennifer Lopez, Solange and Shay Mitchell all have in common? Sure, they’re all super-successful stars whose style we copy on the regular, but they’re also leading the pack in today’s celebrities-turned-designers news! Plus, get the scoop on Target’s plus-size collection (and the stylish bloggers leading the campaign!) and more, below.

Back in February, the triple-threat Lopez decided she’d add another skill to her list: designing jewelry! And her charm bracelet collection, Jennifer Lopez by Endless Jewelry, is now sold in more than 25 international markets. For fall, she’s expanding the line to include necklaces, rose gold charms and more — and she’s modeling it in the ads, but of course.
“Everyone has their own unique sense of style and that style is a reflection of individual personality. That’s what is so much fun about my collection for Endless and the other brands I work with,” she said. “As a designer, I get to bring my own vision to each design and every piece that we are creating, and all the women out there wearing my clothes or my jewelry designs can mix and match to make each design unique to them. That’s what I love about fashion, in general.”
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is also extending her spring ad campaign into fall, posing for a new round of photos for Paige Denim. Huntington-Whiteley’s stylist Cher Coulter helped style the ’80s-inspired ads, which feature the star in leather, plunging tops and (what else?) jeans. “It was fun to collaborate with the brand on the look and feel of the campaign, and then see it come to life. I can’t wait to share the images with everyone,” the model said in a statement.
Solange is taking her singer-slash-designer credit to the next level, creating a campaign with Puma to promote her shoe collection with the line. Called Word to the Woman, it highlights the shoes and celebrates women and female empowerment.
To help show off the pieces, Solange tapped 15 influential women, who work in various industries across the country, to each model a pair of the upgraded Puma Suede style — now made with monochromatic coloring, new patterns and materials and intricate laces — in a series of artistic (and super colorful) images.
Oh, you thought we were done? Not even close! Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell is also jumping on the creative bandwagon this season, but this time, she’s got her very own athleisure line, named Fit to Wander.
Joining the ranks of Carrie Underwood, Kate Hudson, Heidi Klum and even more sporty stars, Mitchell debuted her athletic-inspired collection (sold exclusively at Kohl’s), which is filled with loose-fitting tops, graphic tanks, leggings, slouchy cardigans and more, on Facebook Monday morning.
“I’m so excited to announce the launch of Fit To Wander exclusively available at Kohl’s — Come wander with me! http://bit.ly/1IHsupx #FitToWander,” she captioned the line’s debut video on her Facebook page. Also excited? You can stock up your Khloé Kardashian-inspired fitness closet with Mitchell’s new designs, at Kohls.com.
To celebrate fashion — at every size — Target has just launched its newest campaign for its plus-size collection, AVA & VIV, featuring everyone’s favorite bloggers Gabi Gregg, Nicolette Mason and Chastity Garner. Even cooler? The trio even had a say in some of the creative process!
“I love fall; it’s the best fashion,” Gregg said in a statement. “Getting to see how our input lead to the actual collection was amazing. I told the designers at Target that I love soft pant joggers and printed sets, and I’m happy to see they designed more of those.”
In the fall collection, which features statement pieces inspired by the bloggers (they worked with the design team last spring to help put the line together), fans can expect to see bold bottoms and fun, colorful matching sets.
“There are pieces in this collection that I absolutely love that you can wear from work to weekend and look great,” Mason said.

Lastly, Via Spiga has once again tapped supermodel (and its brand ambassador!) Hilary Rhoda to front its fall campaign in a series of “dreamy” and “mysterious” photos, shot by fashion photographer Sharif Hamza. In each of the ads, Rhoda shows off the brand’s eight newest styles, including shoes, handbags and outerwear.
“I’m honored to partner once again with Via Spiga for their fall 2015 campaign,” Rhoda said in a statement. “Nothing gives me more confidence than a great pair of shoes, and Via Spiga offers a wide variety of beautiful styles for every occasion.”
