Hilary Swank, kid from 'Modern Family' launch fashion lines. Not together.
Move over, Jessica Simpson. Both Oscar winner Hilary Swank and side-splittingly funny 11-year-old Rico Rodriguez (Manny from ABC's "Modern Family") have jumped into the fashion game.
Swank, it was announced in Women's Wear Daily, is working with a management agency on a line of apparel "with an athletic bend." Apparently the idea grew out of Swank's previous life as a competitive gymnast. And, you know, the fact that she's a star with a brand-worthy name. No word yet on when the brand will launch and where. Swank is now, according to WWD, in the "interviewing designers" phase of production.
As for Rodriguez, he tweeted news about his new line -- RAR It Fitz Fashions -- last week. Rodriguez is joined by his sister, Raini (Paul Blart's daughter), in the venture and clothes are already available online at rarfashionz.com. Apologies to fans of Manny's precocious "Modern Family" wardrobe of smoking jackets and pressed pants -- RAR Fashions, thus far, is limited to age-appropriate t-shirts, hoodies and beadazzled tops.
Hmm, maybe Swank should give the kids a call?
