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

Posted on

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 for  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?
