FIve-time Olympic gymnastics medalist Nastia Liukin has signed on to partner with JCPenney to launch Supergirl by Nastia, a tween (ages 8 to 12) line of fleece, dresses, tunics, knit pants, tees, leggings and shrug tops. Liukin helped select colors and design the line—"I'm around 100 to 200 girls that age every day at the gym," she told Dallas News. "The clothes are trendy but comfortable and affordable. That's what we were going for." JCPenney is just the latest brand to partner with Liukin, who also has deals with Covergirl, Visa, AT&T, Herbal Essences, Pure Sport, Secret, Sega and Wheaties.
