Justin Timberlake with John Lindeberg and Trace Ayala This season Justin Timberlake hit Fashion Week not just as a stylish celebrity, but as a fashion designer. JT launched his William Rast line in 2005 with his childhood friend Trace Ayala, but it wasn't until Monday that it had its Bryant Park debut. And since the former N'Sync bad boy has a number of other projects on the side, designers Johan and Marcella Lindeberg have lead roles within the collection. At first glance I wasn't too sure what to make of the garments. The models looked like hipsters from the Village and like some young people at any mall circa 1988. But Justin says that his inspiration comes from "a new America".

Check out the photos below, and let me know your thoughts on JT's William Rast Fall 2009 collection.
