T-shirts. Everyone’s got them, but no one has enough.
Pop star Mandy Moore created her own line and label, Mblem, so that she could have an unlimited supply of “functional, casual and sexy” T’s.
“It all evolved from the fact that I’m totally the jeans and T-shirt girl. If I can get away with wearing jeans and a T-shirt somewhere, I’ll do it,” Moore told The Associated Press in a phone interview.
“Getting dressed up is fun but I’m really just a lazy bum and that’s the extent of the wardrobe in my mind,” she said.
For Moore, whose screen credits include “The Princess Diaries” and “Chasing Liberty,” fit comes first.
“I’m a tall girl (5-foot-10), so I’m always searching for the perfect jeans and T-shirt,” the 20-year-old singer-actress said. “I’m a huge fan of shopping — I am a girl, after all — but I find that a lot of the popular T-shirts are too short. I mainly just wanted something that I could kick around in.”
She added: “I’m a pretty modest girl so I’m not into anything too risque.”
Her Mblem shirts, which are priced at about $50, are available in some of her favorite color combinations, including orange and brown and pink and brown, printed with lyrics of some of her favorite classic rock songs.
“I kind of just did the line selfishly,” she said. “I’m lucky to be in the position to do that.”
