Just like any other human on earth, celebrities hate to be pigeonholed. It’s why Lady Gaga starred in A Star Is Born and Prince Harry turned to a Silicon Valley start-up. Some celebrities go as far as to dip their toe into the cutthroat world of business, (although how different can it be to a grueling casting call?) Some of our favorite celebrities have even thrived in their new positions as CEO, turning everything they put their signature on into profit gold. 

This newest wave of star-turned-entrepreneurs means that there’s something on the market for everyone, especially those who want a little bit of that gold hollywood touch in their home. Find your celebrity business match below. 


For the Home Chef 

Drew Barrymore

Even after she produced some of the best movies of all time (50 First Dates, He’s Just Not That Into You) through Flower Films, her production company, Drew Barrymore keeps on making our lives better. After seeing a gap in the market for both charming and functional homeware products, Barrymore used her love for design and her entrepreneurial touch to create Beautiful Kitchenware, creating affordable, stream-lined, and touch-activated technology-based kitchen appliances, cookware, and utensils. 


  1. There’s the coveted Air Fryer, which comes in colors seen straight out of Pinterest (think Black Sesame, Sage Green, Oyster Grey and will make the most boring of college kitchens warm and inviting. 

  2. This Knife Set is certainly something you will want to keep out! With a modern block to display the 12 piece set and that signature curly B, this particular product leaves every other knife set I’ve ever looked at in the dust. 

  3. It’s The Dutch Oven’s world now, and we’re all just living in it. Create the yummiest Sourdough bread or Sunday roast in this enamel masterpiece with gold accents that won’t break the bank at $60. Colors range from the foamiest of greens to the same navy blue of Leonardo Dicaprio’s sparkly eyes. Le Creuset could never. 

  4. On my personal wishlist, the 6 Slice Touchscreen Toaster Oven seems almost too fancy for toaster strudels and last night’s leftovers. With gold accent finishes and 10 different functions, this toaster will have a place of honor in my next apartment.  


For the Jetsetter 

Shay Mitchell 

Pretty Little Liars and You star Shay Mitchell is well on her way to creating several brand empires. An on-the-go travel addict herself, Mitchell, created her travel-inspired brand Beis, focusing on making affordable pieces that are both functional and add an air of luxury to even the most tedious of travels. For our over 21+ readers, Mitchell also founded Onda Sparkling Tequila, which offers flavors like lime and grapefruit, made with real juice and promises 0 carbs and 0 sugar. Sounds like a win-win to me! 


  1. Puffer fabric has been all the rage this season, and what better way to add it to your wardrobe than through Beis’ Puffer Duffle! At under $100, the Puffer Duffle is perfect for your weekend getaway with girlfriends or a romantic trip with your partner. With a water-resistant bottom, a padded laptop sleeve, and a hidden cell phone pocket, this duffle is ready for whatever adventure awaits. 

  2. Boring backpack be gone! The 2-in-1 Backpack is stunning to look at in either black or beige and offers tons of storage for school or work. The best part? The front pouch is removable! And oh, yeah, it becomes a crossbody! Talk about 9-to-5 use. 

  3. A weekend bag that’s been used at the airport, hotels, even at hospitals when there’s a new arrival! The Weekender is nothing but adaptable, with external pockets, laptop sleeves, and a trolley passthrough that makes it easy to sit on top of other luggage. With over 2,000 5 star reviews, the weekender is a crowd favorite. If you buy anything, buy this. 

  4. On my personal wishlist, The Crossbody seems like the perfect accompaniment from grocery trips to outdoor dinner dates. With a clear handle and a removable strap, you’ll get two different looks for the price of one. It also has a key fob and a trolley passthrough, just in case you thought this bag couldn’t get any better. 


For the Forever Fashionista 

Tan France

You may know Tan France from Netflix’s Queer Eye ( the best-rebooted show of the 21st century) or Dressing Funny, but you may not have known that France has had skin in the fashion game way longer than he’s been our resident makeover maven. France opened Kingdom & State in 2011, an inclusive swimwear line with a size range between XS-3XL made with primarily renewable textiles. Talk about making sustainability chic! 


  1. The Calypso Halter Monokini is perfect for the 70’s revival we’re witnessing. With a flattering halter neckline, cutout sides, and a ruched bottom detailing, this monokini is perfect for the beach or the pool. True to Kingdom & State’s promise, this sexy one-piece is made from recycled nylon spandex. 

  2. Every body is a bikini body, and there’s no better proof than wearing the Willow Cascade Top and Willow Cascade Bottoms this summer. Olive green pairs amazingly well with a summer tan, and the romantic ruffle detailing is very a la Bridgerton. 

  3. If you really want to dive into the 70’s revival, pick up the Bristol Portrait Collar One Piece. The most unique bathing suit that I’ve seen this season, this nod to Penny Lane, features a deep v neckline, an adjustable belt, and removable bra padding (yay!). From the cut to the collar, this bathing suit screams flattering. 

  4. On my personal wishlist, the Alexandria Contour One Piece features a super flattering underwire style with an amazing neutral paisley print. This one-piece feels super classic and clean and is something I know I would wear for years to come! It is also made from the same buttery soft recycled Nylon Spandex. 



Hi there! I'm Gabriela. I currently study journalism at Elon University. My favorite part of being a writer is having that little spark of an idea and just putting pen to paper. I specialize in journalistic and creative writing, but I also work in graphic design and broadcast reporting. Really anything creative- I'm your girl! I've loved to read since I was little and run a bookstagram in my spare time. Growing up on the East Coast, I love being near (or on) the water. I can speak English, Spanish, and French. My goal in life is to learn six languages, just like the pope! A perfect day would start with a nice iced coffee and end at an art museum.
