LisaRaye McCoy is sharing her eye for style and her sexy swag with a new line of jeans.
During a press conferece for the upcoming season of "LisaRaye: The Real McCoy," the actress announced that she’s branding her own denim collection with PZI Jeans. And, unlike many other celebrities, she’s not just slapping her name on a ready-made product, she’s getting hands-on experience in the design process. She had input on everything from material to garment structure and design.
The finished product is the self-titled LisaRaye Collection, which features jeans that she’d be proud to pull on before heading out the door. "I believe in this jean line," LisaRaye said excitedly. "It contours the body and holds us in. It has stretch to it. I’ve designed some really pretty designs."
LisaRaye crafted the jeans with curvier women in mind, so her pants are smaller in the waist and fuller in the hips to flatter thicker figures. Women who want to rock LisaRaye’s jeans will be going for a very distinct look. It should come as no surprise to anyone who has seen "The Real McCoy" that all of her designs, no matter what the cut, are white.
The LisaRaye Collection will be sold online this summer, but the actress is already looking to expand her product’s presence. "I’m trying to get it everywhere that I can," she revealed, noting that she’d love to see her jeans sold in stores. And LisaRaye’s already thinking of breaking into the beauty business with plans for a hair line. She wasn’t clear, however, on whether she was talking about wigs and weaves or other types of hair care products.
With so much hustle, men have had to go on the backburner for LisaRaye–all except for one. "I’m not really dating anyone right now. I’m just taking time to work on me and my personal relationship with God," she said. "I’m steady thinking about the future because it looks so promising to where I’m overwhelmed with where I’m at even now."
Between season two of her reality show, debuting April 7 at 7 p.m. on TV One, and VH1′s upcoming series "Single Ladies" alone, LisaRaye has a lot on her plate. Of course, she is more than able to get it all done. See how she does it in the season 2 trailer of "The Real McCoy" posted below.
