Maury Povich definitely sticks to a formula on his talk show. Without out-of-control teens and tweens and baby daddy/mama drama, he really wouldn’t have anything to talk about. Most sane people would never go on this show to air their dirty laundry and be humiliated. But there are some, like the woman who had 17 men take paternity tests that all turned out to be negative, who will take their 15 minutes anyway they can get it — even at the expense of what’s left of their reputations. These may be the type of people who would purchase these shirts. Wouldn’t it be fun for dad, mom, and baby to go out together wearing these tees: “I AM the daddy,” “You ARE the father,” and “I met my daddy on Maury”! That way everyone they meet will know they can’t manage their lives or conduct themselves like respectable adults. At least folks would take pity on the baby because she couldn’t pick her parents.

It takes a lot for us to be excited by clothes designed by celebs (we blame you, Jessica Simpson), but we could really get behind, not to mention inside, any one of these tees designed to raise money for HIV/AIDS prevention projects. H&M and Designers Against AIDS asked a bunch of celebs we love, like Dita Von Tees, Yoko Ono and Estelle, to create T-shirts for the second annual Fashion Against AIDS Collection. Twenty-five percent of the profits on each tee sold will go to charities that help curb the spread of HIV.
And, of course, you’ll spread the safe sex message by wearing one. Cyndi Lauper’s tee reads, “Girls Just Want To Have Safe Sex,” and Estelle’s says “Life Is Too Short — Have Safe Sex.” Even Yoko Ono chimed with an “Imagine Peace” tee, which doesn’t have anything to do with safe sex, really, but what the hell, she’s Yoko Ono. The tees go on sale in 1,000 stores at H&Ms in 30 countries and at DesignersAgainstAIDSShop.com on May 28. [Designers Against AIDS] Keep reading »
The Michelle Obama-focused style blog Mrs. O is getting into the Obama-inspired fashion business. Don’t worry, the site hasn’t become completely tasteless and started selling knockoffs of her outfits. Instead, they’re copying her in a cheeky way, by putting her style on an American Apparel shirt. The Mrs. O T-shirt is a trompe l’oeil interpretation of Obama’s final presidential debate outfit, a Maria Pinto dress worn with three Erickson Beamon flora brooches pinned to a single strand of peals. The limited edition shirt will be available for $30 starting today, with 10 percent of the proceeds going to Operation USO Care Package, an initiative the real Mrs. O supported in her 2008 holiday greeting.
