She was named LPGA Rookie Of The Year in 2005 and has been ranked in the top 10 of the Women’s World Golf Rankings since they were introduced in February 2006. With such an accomplished career thus far, it’s hard to believe this rising star is only 23-years old.

Listen up beach babes because surfing has never been so chic. Designer Cynthia Rowley has partnered with surf and swim label, Roxy, on a new line simply named “Cynthia Rowley for Roxy.” Rowley is said to be an avid surfer herself, which led to the collaboration and the upcoming 40-piece collection of swimsuits, wetsuits, dresses, tees and accessories.
According to WWD, Rowley explained, “My whole idea for this collection was to take all of the great functionality found in these surf clothes and bring some fashion into
the function.” Whether you are catching some waves or weekending at the beach, you can now do so in comfort and style.
The budget-friendly line, which launches in March 2010, will be available exclusively at Barney’s New York in the U.S. and at Collette in Paris as well as Roxy and Cynthia Rowley stores. Glam Gal is “so stoked” for this collection.
