Tara was at the big fashion trade show in Vegas this week to show off her new fashion line, called Liposuction by Tara Reid.
Okay, okay. I’m kidding. It’s called Mantra. But how great would it be if it were called Liposuction? I would buy it then.
Mantra, which Reid is debuting today at the Project show in Las Vegas, features T-shirts, dresses, bikinis, ponchos and hoodies decorated with trinkets, charms and beads in eight bright colors that are meant to inspire emotions. â€œItâ€™s about putting into the universe what you want in life: Red means love, pink is friendship, green is lucky, black is protection,â€ says Reid, who found inspiration in her longtime hobby of making charm bracelets. â€œYouâ€™re gonna have a story when you wear this bikini or when you put this dress on: Youâ€™ll either get love or meet a new friend or you might meet a guy.â€ Indeed, her two-piece swimsuits â€” which come in string, boy short, halter, and bandeau styles â€” also feature flirty messages like â€œCatch Me If You Canâ€ or â€œSingle and Ready to Mingle,â€ and her T-shirt dresses have cut-out backs strung with hand-made chains. And while Reid hopes to see the items (priced between $65 to $180) in major department stores by early next year, she admits that sheâ€™s just happy being creative. â€œI feel like Iâ€™m in a really great place in my life, and I love what Iâ€™m doing,â€ she says. â€œI love acting but I canâ€™t hire myself. If this works, then weâ€™re in business. If not, I tried.â€
Heh. You have to give poor Tara props for being like, “Well, I’d rather have a film career than be hawking flimsy dresses, but I pretty much self-destructed under the weight of my drinking problem, so this is what we’re doing instead now.”
And, listen, dear readers, should you happen to spot anyone out in public wearing a garment that says “Single and Ready to Mingle,” and that individual is not some manner of small dog or illiterate foreigner, I implore you to shoot him or her in the face. There’s just no excuse for wearing something so stupid. We don’t need those people on our planet. The cops may give you shit at first, but, once you explain your motive, they’ll understand.
