La La Anthony isn't afraid to stand out — as evidenced by her decades-long career, which has seen the multihyphenate embrace a variety of different roles, both onscreen and off. From cohosting a radio show and cementing herself as an indomitable media personality with projects like "Total Request Live" to starring in a slew of popular films and television shows like the Starz hit series "Power" (LaKeisha forever!), Anthony has proven time and time again that her talents can't simply be contained to one set industry or job title — and frankly, with a creative skill set as impressive as hers, why should they be?
Anthony's latest venture provides yet another opportunity for the star to flex her creative muscles, though this time with the chance to put her inimitable personal style and savvy fashion sense on full display. After striking up a multiyear partnership with PrettyLittleThing and debuting several ultra-successful collections — which she codesigned alongside the brand's team of creatives — Anthony has released a new limited edition capsule with the fashion label, featuring resort-inspired pieces that are designed to feel like a tropical escape.
"PrettyLittleThing is an incredible company to be in partnership with. They are into philanthropy and giving back and a lot of the things that align with what's important to me. And on top of it, they have super cool, edgy, sexy, great fashion that all my friends love and family love to wear," Anthony tells POPSUGAR, referencing her famous friends like Gabrielle Union and Khloe Kardashian, who were both hyping up the star's posts about her PLT collection on Instagram. Union commented "My gorgeous friend" on Anthony's launch day post, while Kardashian wrote "Damnnnnnnnnn" on a set of photos featuring Anthony in the line's Brown Abstract Triangle Bikini Top and Brown Abstract Printed Tie Bikinis Bottoms.
Much like Anthony, the size-inclusive fashion collection is truly one of a kind, with styles that range from sexy swimsuits and skin-baring two-piece sets to sheer outfits that are perfect for eveningwear. There's something for everyone to shop in the capsule, as the star pulled a lot of her inspiration for the line from everyday life.
"Even if you can't go on a vacation, that doesn't mean you can't feel like [you're on] one. I love that this collection feels summery and sexy, almost like you're going somewhere — even if you're not," says Anthony. "A lot of us just need that escape sometimes, and you can get it through clothing; I think that's what this collection definitely symbolizes."
Beyond celebrating her newest fashion collection with PrettyLittleThing, we had the opportunity to chat with Anthony about all of the products she's loving these days — from nourishing makeup removing wipes to noise-cancelling headphones.
