Eccentric soul star Macy Gray is set to become the latest musician to launch a clothing line, under her real name NATALIE HINDS.

The I TRY singer is planning a retro fashion range she's calling "ghetto chic".

Gray will work with Jill Scott and BLACK EYED PEAS stylist NONJA (corr) McKENZIE on the new designs, which are set to hit upscale stores later this year (05).

The singer targets Diana Ross as her muse for the new collection.

Meanwhile, Gray isn't turning her back on her acting career - the TRAINING DAY star will play a stripper/burglar in Keira Knightley's new action movie DOMINO and a Madam in Outkast's untitled new movie musical.
