When production and fashion worlds collide, you get things like Benetton designed Simpsons t-shirts.
Industry giant Twentieth Century Fox and Fox Consumer Products is partnering with the biggest names in fast fashion to create clothies for Fox's most popular shows and movies thanks to Jeremy Scott's Bart Simpson-inspired threads.
For example, on top of their new kids line Dolce & Gabbana is whipping up a line of Rio-inspired clothes while H&M designs their own Ice Age tees for the summer release of Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Keep your eyes out for Fox fashion when it rolls into stores this summer!

The folks at Benetton are back on good terms with the big guy upstairs now that they've settled their dispute with the Vatican.
In case you forgot, Pope Benedict sicked his legal team on Benetton last year over an ad that showed His Holiness kissing Imam Ahmed Mohamed el-Tayeb.
Now, almost 6 months later, both parties have

With love and hope, Benetton's UNHATE campaign has given Tripoli a beautiful dove sculpture.
This dove, meant to help celebrate the first Libyan Independence Day in 42 years, is made from recovered shell cases found by war zone residents.
What a beautiful way to transform hate into love!

Well that certainly didn't take long!
The Vatican is raising hell over Benetton's new UNHATE Foundation campaign, specifically the ad that shows Pope Benedict kissing Imam Ahmed Mohamed el-Tayeb.
On Thursday the Vatican released a statement saying their lawyers in Italy and around the world will "take the proper legal measures" to stop the distribution of the unauthorized photo, even in the media.
The statement adds:
"This is a grave lack of respect for the pope, an offense against the sentiments of the faithful and a clear example of how advertising can violate elementary rules of respect for people in order to attract attention through provocation."
Benetton has since removed the ad from their website and issued their own statement and apologized to those who were offended.

This will certainly get people talking!
Benetton has released their new UNHATE Foundation campaign that shows world leaders like Barack Obama and the Pope locking lips with other famous figureheads.
The foundation hopes posting these images "on the walls of locations symbolic of the desperately-needed peace process" like Tel Aviv, New York, Rome, Milan and Paris will contribute to the creation of a new culture of tolerance and to combat hatred.
What do U think of these images? Thought provoking or another attempt of shockvertisng???
