Miley Cyrus joins the celebrity designer 'Oops!' list.

Miley Cyrus might be the latest celebrity designer to come in contact with controversy — thanks to this whole unfortunate toxic jewelry thing (still less dangerous than listening to “Party in the U.S.A.” on repeat) — but she certainly isn’t the first. After the jump, a few clothing-centric scandals involving celebrity designers that made headlines.

  • In 1996 the National Labor Committee found that sweatshop labor was used to make clothes forĀ  Kathie Lee Gifford’s Wal-Mart line. And then three years later, a Salvadoran worker accused Gifford of forcing her and others to produce her line under poor conditions.

Cyrus might have a problem on her hands. But it’s hardly irreversible, right? Tell us, PopWatchers: Will you buy her new line once the jewelry meets industry standards?

    Nope. I’m not going to buy her jewelry, or Beyonce’s Perfume, or Jessica’s hair extensions….

    The quickest way to get me to NOT guy something is to smack a famous person’s name on it.

      I’m totally with you there…esp since the suff usually costs 10 times more just b/c their name is on it.

  • Madd

    She had a jewelry line?

  • jinksy

    Yeah, I’m so sure she actually makes all the jewellry…this is lame. Luv you Miley.

    Maybe some of these “celeb” designers should consider manufacturing in the U.S where we have stricter standards. It is just all about greed – it’s cheaper to go to China!!!
