If you head into a bebe store this week, you’ll run into a rare collection of lingerie.
And it will have the Pussycat Dolls’ stamp all over it.
They’ve stepped up to launch ‘Pussycat Dolls Shhh…by Robin Antin’ with bebe.
Both camps say the collection was inspired by the original stage show costumes and styling of the Pussycat Dolls modern burlesque troupe.
As Robin puts it, “I really went back to our roots, went back to our costumes from our original shows. The words for me on this collection are flirtatious, fashion and fun! Inside every woman lives a Pussycat Doll.”
It’s the group’s first lingerie line. The premiere collection will also be sold on bebe.com.
A quick sneek peak (official pics haven’t been released yet):
- The line features nautical looks, animal print, rock-and-roll styles and frills
- It covers every cut from boy shorts to micro-minis to delicate tops and bottom
- Inspired by pin-up girls, all types of music, and the sailor girl style

I don’t know how true it is but reports this morning indicate Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had a horrible book signing experience.
According to WENN, angry protesters bombarded the TV twin when they showed up to launch, “Influence” on Tuesday.
Fans lined up to meet the 22-year-old moguls, who were celebrating the release of their new coffee table book, Influence, on Tuesday.
But the pair were stunned to find animal rights activists shouting outside the event – part of a campaign launched by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) against the stars for their fashion choices.
A PETA spokesperson tells WENN: “People who still wear fur haven’t woken up to the fact that a big, dead animal on your back makes you look like a troll.
“Compassionate fashionistas know that real beauty comes from the heart – something that the Trollsen Twins seem to lack, considering all the animals they’ve killed for their clothes.”
A few nurses have come up with ways to spend the $150,000 that bought Gov. Palin’s wardrobe.
A new internet game posted this morning by the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee, , lets web users themselves find other uses for the shopping spree the Republican National Committee famously spent on wardrobe and makeup for Gov. Sarah Palin.
“The secret is out. There is a Marxist in the Presidential race. She’s just not on the Democratic ticket. The real Marxist is in the McCain camp, the Neiman Marxist adorned in that fetching $150,000 wardrobe,” says CNA/NNOC Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro.
“It’s extremely disingenuous to paint yourself as a ‘hockey mom’ or the voice of ‘Joe Six Pack’ when you’re strutting around in a $150,000 outfit,” said DeMoro.
“Real working people live and dress far differently,” DeMoro noted.
The $150,000 shopping spree amounts to, as Sam Stein noted on Huffington Post, more than the average American household spends on clothes in 80 years.
The same $150,000 could buy
- 15,000 chef coats
- 5,769 painter’s bibs
- 5,000 police shirts
- 4,687 auto mechanics’ coveralls
- 3,750 pilot uniforms
- 3,571 housekeeper uniforms
