Celebrities who are using their star status to build fashion fiefdoms are growing in numbers for this year’s MAGIC convention getting underway today. It’s an all-star turnout during Market Week, kicking off this afternoon with “Twilight” hunk Kellan Lutz at Mandalay Bay, who previews his pre-Spring 2014 Abbot + Main men’s and women’s collection.
MAGIC has called Las Vegas home since 1989, and the twice-a-year Las Vegas Convention Center exhibits every February and August are booked for now through 2015.
David Cassidy performs at the ’70s Splendor opening-night concert party this evening. “The Hills” star Kristin Cavallari presents her footwear collection with Chinese Laundry. Jessica Simpson and Rachel Zoe are here later this week with their bestselling brands. The celebrity faces for Pastry fashions are Madison Pettis, Alli Simpson, Jessica Jarnell, Coco Jones and Katie Armiger.
