As if starring in hit movies like Hairspray isn’t enough, Amanda Bynes can now count designer on her jam-packed resume. And she’s only 21-years old! At last night’s launch of her line Dear by Amanda Bynes at Manhattan’s chic SushiSamba 7 restaurant, Amanda told PEOPLE that she couldn’t be more excited to team up with Steve & Barry’s, the nationwide chain that recently launched Bitten, Sarah Jessica Parker’s clothing line. And the best part is, like Bitten, all pieces of the Dear by Amanda Bynes collection cost $19.98 or less. It’s almost too much for the young star to take in. “I, like, blacked out through the first part of this party! I can’t believe I am here doing this,” said the star, who wore a short, black racer-back Dear dress. “I’m all about Steve & Barry’s, and I am so excited.” The collection also includes jewelry. Amanda showed off her necklace, bracelet and cocktail ring to PEOPLE, enthusing “It’s all solid. Feel it? It’s really heavy. I like when jewelry is actually heavy. It is actually nice stuff. It’s so surreal!” Mark your calendars — Amanda’s line hits stores August 16.

I LIKE HER BUT COME ON, NOT ANOTHER CELEB WITH A CLOTHING LINE , DESIGNING IS THE NEW BLACK FOR CELEBS, YOUR NOT A REAL CELEB IF U DON´T HAVE A CLOTHING LINE.

I live the dress hse has on; it is young and fun!!!
She always dresses super cute.

This dress is so short it’s impractical. It would be impossible to sit down in without exposing your bare butt on your chair.

Jennifer on

She is so cute! Loved her in Hairspary. At least her clothing line will be affordable.

I’ve got to think it’s a man, who designs and then encourages a 21yo. to dress in something that barely covers their no-see zones.

KD on

The clothes from her line are cute and affordable. Its a little young for my taste, but the clothes would look great on a teen with a budget.

I like the heart sweater.

Alexandra on

I love the collection and it’s definnetly affordable! And yes the dresses are really short but you can wear them with leggings..

Natalia on

I really like the black shoes she’s wearing in the video on her webside, they have purple sole, very cute….anybody know the brand? Are they from her colection???

Jenna on

How does she thinks shes going to sit down? OR BEND FOR THAT MATTER. I love the dress. With Leggings.

Daisy on

Amanda is really cute here, too bad she can’t add a couple of harmless inches to her dress. She looks really fit I have to say, this is a good size hopefully she doesn’t go too far in thinning down!

Jamie on

Looks like a shirt, not a dress.

Jenna on

How Does she propous to sit…

Gianna on

so cute nice !!!!

Chloe on

A little too short for my taste.

Xena on

Okay…I like to dress sexy or cute. However one would call her look. BUT, I also like to be able to sit down. If this dress was slightly longer it would be much sexier. I dont understand why everyone thinks be sexy means wearing very little.

Amber on

The closest Steve & Barry’s is 2 hours away and a 4 hour drive. Is there any way to order the clothes online. I have searched but no luck.

Steph F. on

I think it’s great – yah —a lot of stars have clothing lines but this one is affordable for everyone. Every piece is under $19.98. I think it’s great!
