Julia Stiles realized she was, like the rest of us, sick to death both of celebrity fashion lines and the willingness of certain bold-faced names to jump on the "green" bandwagon. So she created the awesomely parodic Julia Stiles Styles.
Tagline: "Helping the environment. You're welcome."
Stiles' Styles range from the $340 Ten Shirts I Love About You, a Frankenstein creation lovingly made from ten individual shirts. "I see, so you re-use," says the interviewer. "And then what do you do with the material from the rest of the shirts? Do you make nine more shirts?"
"What?" replies Stiles. "No."
There's also the showstopping $480 Save The Last Shants. Shants, you see, are the first shirt that also doubles as pants. "I was just shooting n Belize and in St. Tropez," explains the actress, "and I met this homeless man who had never owned a shirt in his life. He had taken his pants and worn them as a shirt and I just thought it was so creative, you know? He was just liberated from the conventions of fashion. I got home and it just dawned on me. I thought, 'Of course!'"
Mocking Erin Wasson — "The people with the best style, for me, are the people that are the poorest. Like, when I go down to like Venice Beach and I see the homeless, I'm like, oh my god, you're pulling out like crazy looks" — is always a safe bet.
