While many Hollywood designers, like Jessica Simpson and Lauren Conrad, are quick to attach their images to their design endeavors, Justin Timberlake has kept his name — and face — on the DL at William Rast, the premium denim collection he started in 2005. But that’s about to change this fall as Timberlake steps in front of the camera for the company’s latest ad campaign that includes a series of steamy web shorts entitled My Name is William Rast. The serialized shorts — which Timberlake co-wrote, co-directed and composed the score for — feature Justin as rebel Rast on the lam with his love interest, played by model Erin Wasson. While they won’t launch until later this month on the William Rast website, we’ve snagged you a sneak peek at the campaign’s sexy print ads. Tell us: What do you think of Justin stepping in front of the cameras?

I think it is great! It will definitely increase his business to know that he is associated with the brand.

Bring it on Justin!!!! Can’t wait to see the ads.

That boy could sell ketchup to a women in a white coat. So good looking!

Kristy on

I think he looks HOT! However it sucks that all the good designers don’t make lines to fit plus sized woman and men too! I mean I am in Canada, but I know that in the US size 14 is the norm. MAKE BIGGER SIZES!!! Plus size woman should not have to shop at 1 or 2 stores only. It’s not fair, and it’s not always our fault we are bigger!

i think that he looks hot and it will only help the line sell well

It’s wonderful to see that all you need nowadays to produce a fashion line is a famous face, not any sort of training in the fashion industry. He is a talented musical performer but I would no more let JT cut my hair or perform dental work. Surely the only thing selling here is his name, not really the trendy (and probably overpriced) clothes.

Kristy I totally agree with you! Plus sized women don’t have as many options…in my opinion, once you get to a certain size all of the clothes look like “grandma” clothes with stupid pictures on the fronts of the shirts! UGH!!! I do think though that having JT in the ads will totally spark more interest! He’s so hot!

jojo on

i think its ok, but he shouldn’t stop his singing career…but, since HE will b in the ads, it will prbly make it sell well-thts only good business…

Belinda on

Hot…very hot!!1

Quit your whining……maybe you should take charge for all of the women that are plus size and create a fashion line for you all. I am a believer that if you are unhappy with something, don’t complain DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Complaining will get you nowhere
