Business ownership is the latest must-have among women on the A-list. Five female celebs who are cashing in on their star power:

  • Halle Berry, Scandale Paris: The Oscar winner's line of $7 panties and $18 bras went on sale at Target stores in October. It's doing well, and Berry wants to expand the brand into swimsuits, nightgowns—and more international stores.
  • Nicki Minaj, Myx Fusions: The "Anaconda" rapper co-owns bubbly moscato maker Myx Fusions; the drink comes in single-serve bottles in three flavors: mango, coconut, and peach. Up next: a line of fizzy sangrias, set to launch in June.

  • Drew Barrymore, Flower: Flower, the makeup brand co-owned by Barrymore, sells lipsticks, nail polishes, and other cosmetics at Walmart. The company doesn't advertise, instead simply relying on the star power of Barrymore.
  • Jessica Alba, The Honest Company: Alba co-founded consumer products business The Honest Company five years ago. It sells diapers, baby wipes, laundry detergent, and other products, and she said it had $150 million in sales last year.
  • Kate Hudson, Fabletics: The Almost Famous actress has a line of colorful leggings, sports bras, and other workout gear. Each item costs less than $100 and is sold through the Fabletics website.
