Burberry Used Toxic Chemicals In A Shirt Modeled By Romeo Beckham? Read Their Statement HERE!!

| Filed under: Victoria BeckhamFashion SmashionDavid BeckhamH&MAmerican ApparelGapBurberryRomeo Beckham

According to Greenpeace, Burberry is selling a shirt that causes hormonal damage! Read their statement HERE!

Yikes!!!

Greenpeace recently tested garments from brands like Burberry, Gap, American Apparel, H&M, and more for harmful chemicals, and the results of the tests led to a NASTY surprise!

EVERY brand tested was guilty of selling tainted children's products!! One specific example is Burberry’s metallic tees from Tunisia, which contain nonylphenol ethoxylates that degrade into nonylphenols and can disrupt hormones.

A Greenpeace East Asia Detox campaigner voiced the troubling implications of the find, saying:

"This is a nightmare for parents everywhere looking to buy safe clothes for their children. These chemicals are in everything, from exclusive luxury designs to affordable fashion, and from T-shirts to shoes. What's worse, they are accumulating in our waterways, especially China's rivers and oceans, leaving a long-lasting environmental mess for our future generations."

To add to that terrible news, the shirt in question was modeled by Victoria and David Beckham’s little prince, Romeo Beckham, last year!!!

Hopefully he didn’t wear the shirt long enough to cause permanent damage!!

Burberry denies the harmfulness of the chemicals, however, and released the following statement:

Holy hair!!!

Kerry Washington rocks a stick straight bob with bangs on Lucky magazine’s December 2013/January 2014 cover, and we’re loving it!!

Look at that rockin' smile! The Scandal bombshell ditches her usual serious Olivia Pope demeanor for the front of the mag, looking scintillatingly playful in a light colored, multi-layered ensem.

And for the spread, the actress rocks a variety of looks perfect for the winter months (see below).

In the first shot, she sits cross-legged in a Gap outfit consisting of a navy turtleneck sweater and jeans paired with Manolo Blahnik heels. In the second, she struts her stuff in a wool Banana Republic coat with DKNY leggings and seksi Jimmy Choo boots. And finally, Kerry dazzles in sequined Michael Kors one shoulder dress.

While Mrs. Nnamdi Asomugha undoubtedly looks AH-mazing throughout her spread, we mainly can’t get over the major tress transformation!

Do U like Kerry with short, fringed hair???

Actresses Recreate Iconic Steven Spielberg Scenes In Spanish Harper's Bazaar

Harper’s Bazaar Spain is celebrating Cannes jury president Steven Spielberg in their June issue with a fashionable, yet cinematic editorial.

For the La Conexión Spielberg spread, or The Spielberg Connection, the mag featured four actresses in frames from some of the director’s most famous flicks.

The first is Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka dressed in a Marc by Marc Jacobs top, reprising Drew Barrymore’s role as Gertie in E.T. How cute is that shot of her kissing that wrinkly old alien? LOLz!
