Rapper/actress Queen Latifah is branching out into the fashion industry - she's launching her own clothing line.
The Bringing Down the House star has teamed with cable TV bosses at America's Home Shopping Network (Hsn) for The Queen Collection, a venture which includes clothes, handbags and other accessories.
Latifah says, "I wanted my collection to reflect my personal style while giving women the tools to build a wardrobe they can feel good in.
"I partnered with Hsn because it's the ideal platform to share my story and the stories of women who inspired me. I hope to instill confidence in hundreds of thousands of women across the country."
But The Queen Collection is just the start of Latifah's fashion endeavours - she's also working on a range of clip-on hair extensions, which she will debut on the network in September (11), weeks after unveiling her clothing line on air.
