Following the footsteps of stars who auction off their designs for the earthquake relief effort, Beyonce Knowles has signed up to model the Fashion for Haiti T-shirt.
Beyonce Knowles is the latest star to use fashion to raise funds for the Haiti earthquake appeal - she's the face of a new charity T-shirt line. The "If I Were a Boy" hitmaker has been signed up to model the Fashion for Haiti T-shirt from the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and she's urging the public to buy the $25 top.
Beyonce says, "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." The proceeds will go to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund - founded by former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush to help desperate Haitians following the devastating tremor which hit the nation on January 12.
The T-shirt goes on sale in major U.S. retailers from February 16. Other stars to use fashion to help aid efforts include singer Jordin Sparks, who has designed a necklace, and Scarlett Johansson, who has created a Haiti handbag with fashion store Mango, while Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears have both donated designer dresses to an online auction.
