RUPERT GRINT LAUNCHES CLOTHING LINE
WILL YOU HAVE RED ENVY™?
In an unexpected career move, British actor Rupert Grint has decided to add fashion designer to his resume.
After receiving glowing reviews for his unique red carpet style from fashion critics and fans alike, Grint decided it was time to create his own line and allow others to emulate his style. â€œThese are outfits that can be worn by anybody: actors on the red carpet, male teens, and my pet dog. Fangirls can also dress their boyfriends and have their very own Rupert! Maybe we should expand into hair-dye nextâ€¦â€
Beginning in January 2010, the clothing line â€“ aptly titled Red Envy â€“ will be available in select department stores across the UK. These will include Harrods, Selfridges, and Kistna Poos. The line will begin with t-shirts, blazers, and jeans. Due to early demand, there are already plans for expanding with scarves, footwear, and sombreros.
The inspiration behind the name for the line came from Grintâ€™s own envious ginger-haired locks. â€œThis hair got me the part of Ron Weasley,â€ he says. â€œItâ€™s only fair I pay homage. Plus, it just sounds cool.â€
Grint is currently filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and says he hopes to juggle both his career as an actor and fashion designer. â€œIf the Olsen twins can do it, why canâ€™t I?â€
Preview pieces of what the industry can expect have been released. They have already been described as â€œrevolutionaryâ€ and â€œtoo good to be trueâ€ (oh, really?).
