She may be currently locked in a war of words with screen siren Faye Dunaway over plans to star in a Bonnie & Clyde remake (yes, I'm appalled too) but that isn't stopping the Hilary Duff machine from powering on. The former Disney starlet is following in the footsteps of Rachel Bilson by launching her own line for DKNY Jeans.

Known as 'Femme' the range is set to include 10 to 12 sportswear pieces such as T-shirts, leggings, sweaters and jeans, natch. The collection will hit stores by August and will be sold via at DKNY stores, Macy's, Lord & Taylor and Nordstrom.

"One of the hardest things is to come up with a name. But I think Femme works really well and explains the line perfectly as feminine but tough all at the same time. It's aggressive, but in a good way," said Duff, who models the range (pictured above). "There is truly something in this line for every girl whose styles change every day, like mine does."
