(NEW YORK) Stylists still parlaying their influence into moneymaking retail avenues? Indeed. As for the latest celeb dresser to go the mass market branded route, QVC has inked a deal with Jennifer Rade. The prolific red carpet stylist counts the likes of Angelina Jolie, Amy Winehouse, P!nk, and Cher among her clients, and will design a capsule collection named Edge by Jen Rade that will debut during the shopping network's Red Carpet Style show on February 22. Joie! Expect three easy-to-wear pieces to drop live on Oscar weekend: a $75 maxidress, a lace tunic and camisole combo for $58, and a gold-studded topper for $40. Three additional items—denim trousers, a lace-edged top, and a lace pencil skirt—will launch in March. This is the second partnership for the A-list magnet, who currently has another collaboration on rack. Rade teamed up with German powerhouse Rena Lange in 2011 to expand the brand's eveningwear; the collection hit stores for Fall 2012.
