Whaaat?! Hey, remember that time he sued you for "stealing" his wife's scent, girl? Guess those bygones are bygones!

Yesterday, Bono was spotted walking around downtown Tribeca accompanied by Stella McCartney.

Why? Don't know, but we're less concerned with why they are together now that we've see what they were wearing!

Sooo much denim! Tooo much denim! What early 90s wormhole did you guys come from???

Bono For LVMH

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionBonoLVMHAnnie Leibovitz

Earlier this year we mentioned how Bono might be appearing in ads for Louis Vuitton as they partly own Bono’s eco-friendly company Edun.

And it seems the rumors were true.

Appearing with his wife, Ali Hewson, Bono is featured in the new Louis Vuitton Core Values ad.

And no, they aren’t wearing Louis Vuitton clothing, instead Bono and Ali are each wearing clothes from their Edun line.

Edun, which was started in 2005, helps encourage trade with Africa and has a mission to rid the country of poverty.

The image, shot by Annie Leibovitz, shows the couple landing in a remote area of South Africa with the tagline reading “Every journey began in Africa.”

Louis Vuitton’s director of communications, Antoine Arnault, reveals, “When they go to Africa, they don’t go to see the beautiful landscapes: They’re there to help people. Theirs is a for-profit company.”

What do U think of the new ad?

Bono's Clothing Line Is Losing Money

Bad news for U2 frontman Bono and his wife Ali Hewson.

The two started clothing line Edun back in 2005 to help raise money for Africa. Unfortunately, the company has been losing money instead.

In fact, last year their line suffered $9 million in losses!

And although Louis Vuitton purchased a large portion of Edun last year, it doesn’t seem to have helped.

Let's see if Edun can make profits this year.

Bono's Wife Creates T-Shirts For Poverty

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionInspirationBono

Ali Hewson is doing her part to help alleviate poverty in Africa by launching a collection of t-shirts.

Ali explained why the cause is so close to her heart:

"I first travelled to Africa in 1985 with Bono and it was a journey that affected both of us deeply. We've been back many times since. We both want to show the beauty of the continent.

Kibera, where the school is situated, is one of the largest slums in Africa and is home to more than 100,000 orphaned children. The people who run the school are very dedicated, and the children so enthusiastic, we felt compelled and inspired by their energy. With these Ts we are able to provide funding to for basic school supplies, hot lunches and healthcare."

Bono's wife got help designing the Saharan inspired shirts from children in Kenya and can be purchased at the UK's Liberty department store.
