Appreciating Amanda Bynes's Fashion Line Of Yore

By "yore" I mean 2007, which is practically a lifetime ago.

Why, she was launching her clothing line. Remember pre-recession times, when every celebrity had one of those? Hers was named "Dear."

She designed it for Steve & Barry, a victim of the recession that also carried Sarah Jessica Parker's line "Bitten," which you also probably forgot.

When she attended the New York launch event in August at a downtown sushi restaurant, she looked kind of like Lindsay Lohan.

Because I'm just that prescient, I noted the similarity in my report of the event for NYmag.com. "I never got to go to prom. I've been working since I was 7. I've been on TV since I was 10," she told me. "It was time for me to glam it up. I'm 21 — these are the things that appeal to me!"

Fast forward to now: and Bynes is being stealth-recorded spastically working out at the gym.

And starting a clothing line. Inspired by Justin Bieber.

"I love Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s clothing line, Elizabeth and James, and I love how Justin Bieber dresses," she told InTouch. "My line will be a mixture of sick styles, and it’s going to be for everybody."
