We have seen celebrities feature in top-charting movies, intrigue us on radio and television, captivate us with their catwalks on the runway, and attract millions of followers on social media. More impressively, many double as entrepreneurs, having launched their very own fashion, beauty and lifestyle businesses.
Interestingly, the traction and grace that comes attached to celebrities give them a foothold in the unforgivingly competitive business world. But that’s not all they require to sustain their businesses. Half the time, most celebrity businesses take off smoothly and end up folding after a year or two. Running a successful business requires a well-thought-out, long-term business strategy, whether you are a celebrity or not. Without a strong business strategy, a celebrity business may end up on the tall list of failed celebrity businesses, and that’s a topic for another day.
Here are six thriving celebrity fashion and beauty enterprises you should know of.
