Justin's Big Fashion Show

10/18/2006 at 12:00 PM ET

Singer, actor, dancer, women’s clothing designer? Is there anything that Justin Timberlake can’t do well? Last year along with best friend Trace Ayala, Timberlake launched a denim line called William Rast, which is a combination of their grandfathers’ names. But last night, the line finally hit the big time– showing for the first time in L.A.’s fashion week and extending from jeans (girlfriend Cameron Diaz‘s favorite) to a full line for men and women. But would you expect a typical show from Mr. Timberlake? Hardly. The models danced, flipped, and strutted their stuff down the catwalk to a celebrity-packed audience including Diaz, Paris Hilton, Patrick Dempsey, Eve and many more. There is one thing that you can continue to expect from William Rast in The Outsiders inspired collection, as Timberlake tells PEOPLE: “The biggest compliment we’ve gotten is ‘I love the way these jeans fit my a–.’ That’s big for us.”

I give kudos for Justin for going out there in the fashion world. If that’s what he wants to do and make money off of it, why not? Of course I know there are some people who are going to respond in saying all negative things but it you had money, wouldn’t you want to touch every aspect you could get your hands on? If his clothes look good and make people feel good then he is doing his job.

does anyone know why he named his line william rast? i’m a tad bit confused, as his name is not william rast and neither is his partner’s. aside from that, i give him props for trying out new things and look forward to seeing more of his collection as it hits the shops!


WILLIAM RAST is named after his Grandfather

Funny..I think him and Britney have the same taste in clothing…

The William Rast’s line is fresh and hip. I tip my hat to Justin and Trace for wanting to put clothes out there that make you feel fresh and fun at the same time. I think that Justin is looking out for his future with going beyond music. He knows he can’t ride the wave of music fame forever! Congrats Justin and Trace!!! Keep up the good work!!!

It’s named William Rast from Justin’s grandfather William, and his co-designers grandfather Mr. Rast. I like the fashion designs a lot, but I don’t like Justin’s personal taste in clothes. What’s with the sweater vests I see him in all the time?? Those have got to go!!

Another celeb starting their own clothing line. Even PAris Hilton has a fragerance. Move over DaVinci, we have a new renaisance man!
