Juicy Couture's clothes may finally stop looking cheap and start actually being cheap. The brand's new parent company, Liz Claiborne, has hired former American Eagle chief design officer LeAnn Nealz to take control. So it's going to get even more mainstream and mass produced, but since Nealz has also worked for Gap, Nine West, Theory and ck Jeans, we expect good things to come. Good things like lower price points, more wearable styles and fewer track suits with ass-lettering. [Fashionista]
