The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has named Beyoncé as the official face of their limited-edition “Fashion For Haiti” T-shirt. The charitable tee features black and lime green graphics designed by Peter Arnell, who also created the CFDA’s iconic “Fashion for America” mended heart T-shirt that raised $2 million dollars following 9/11 for the Twin Towers Fund. As the spokesperson for “Fashion For Haiti,” Beyoncé has a message for all fashionistas: “Join me and the fashion industry by buying and wearing the Fashion for Haiti T-shirt. Together we can send a message of hope by raising much needed funds for the people of Haiti.” In addition to Beyoncé, fashion designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, Tommy Hilfiger and more are rallying to promote the $25 knit. The CFDA will donate the net proceeds from each T-shirt to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. Look for the tee to hit shops and e-boutiques on February 16.

I would definitely buy one, not just because of Beyonce but because its a brilliant way to help Haiti :) They need our help, who cares who is the “Face” of the shirt (with lots or respect to Beyonce, I am a HUGE fan) but we need to help the thousand of “faces” in Haiti.

Yeah, I am so sick of Beyonce. I’d like to hear that her and Jay-Z are going to donate a million or so of the many many millions they make..

One hundred dollars to me is a million dollars to Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Y’all don’t know if Beyonce and Jay have donated to the Haiti cause or not. They both are private, so don’t hate about something you don’t know.
