Kelly Osbourne has finally spilled the beans about the meaning behind her strange (and presumably extremely painful) “Stories…” head tattoo, and we now know that the ink is a tribute to the Fashion Police star’s brand-new fashion line. Just a couple of months after debuting the “Stories…” tat on the left side of her head back in June, Kelly announced that she is launching her first-ever clothing line on America’s Home Shopping Network, titled what else, but Stories… by Kelly Osbourne.
In late June, when Kelly tweeted photos of herself going under the needle for a new tattoo on the side of her shaved head, the TV personality managed to stay mum about the inspiration behind the “Stories…” ink, hinting only that it had a deeper meaning for the Fashion Police star. It wasn’t until August 18 that Kelly made it official, announcing on Twitter the development of “Chapter 1,” the first installment for her label Stories…, set to debut on HSN on September 25.
According to Kelly, inspiration struck for her forthcoming fashion line as she was sorting through her wardrobe with a friend recently, finding it difficult to get rid of anything because she felt a special connection to each piece of clothing, like it had it’s own story from her past. “I believe that every time you wear something, you have a story of where you wore it, whether it be good or bad,” she said. “Like, there are all these emotional attachments.”
Kelly is obviously psyched about diving into a new aspect of the fashion industry, and the 29-year-old had this to say about why she thinks she has what it takes to create a successful clothing line: “Because I have been everything from a size 0 to pretty much almost a 16, depending on the brand, it made me realize all the tricks I had learned to cover up certain areas or to detract from certain areas, and what I like in clothing.”
And the best part is, because Kelly has faced her own personal struggles with body image and fashion in the past, she has made sure her Stories… line will be accessible for virtually all body types, available from size 0 all the way to size 24. Plus, the same day she plans to launch the new line, Kelly will also launch her new website, which will allow fans to share photos and anecdotes about how they wore her exclusive designs, staying true to the name Stories…
Despite the fact that Kelly Osbourne’s new line will go up against collections from other celebrity fashion icons, like Rita Ora, Rihanna and Cara Delevingne, when it hits HSN in September, the 29-year-old’s venture is bound to be a huge success. After all, Kelly says she already has celebrities like Taylor Swift and Ciara requesting items from the new collection. Get it girl!
