You know her rock star husband Gilby Clarke from his days touring with Guns N' Roses, and you know her denim line, Frankie B, from the Saturday Night Live skit where Mango aka Chris Kattan and Jennifer Lopez fought over the same jumpsuit.  Now here is your chance to get a closer look at the life and times of fashion designer Daniella Clarke.

Rock N Roll Denim - Frankie B

JH - He got the younger edition. That is a good twist. On your daughter, Frankie B, since you named the line after her.

DC - Yes.

JH - Now most girls go into their moms' closets, especially when their mom is chic, and steal their clothes. Does your daughter go and steal your denim? Does she wear them?

DC - Oh yes, she only wears Frankie B, she won't wear any other denim line. She always goes into my closet, are you kidding? She drives me crazy because every time I go looking for something I have to go searching through my closet to discover it is not there and then go search her closet. Now that she is in college it is even worse because I have to call her and say "Hey, where is my shirt with the blah-blah-blah" she will say "Ohhh. It is here in my dorm room." So yes, she does.
