Jessica Simpson was spotted on the way to the airport in New York City earlier today sporting a limited edition Mondo Guerra World AIDS Day tee shirt!
The shirt featured a colorful screen printed skull reminiscent of Mondo’s Project Runway finale show inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead festival and was sold exclusively through Piperlime.com beginning this morning to help raise money for amfAR.
Each tee was priced at a hefty $50 a pop, but $20 from each sale went to amfAR so it was really just $30 for a limited edition Mondo Guerra shirt. Not bad at all! Sadly, there were only 300 available and the site sold out within just a few hours, leaving some fans rather disgruntled that they missed out.
Fans other than Jessica that didn’t miss out included Rachel Zoe and Mondo himself, both of which proudly modeled their skulldiggery online:
World AIDS Day is an issue near and dear to the heart of Mondo, who admitted publicly for the first time that he was HIV positive in an emotional episode of Project Runway.
There was also another Mondo design available called “Live and Love” featuring the Spanish translation “vive y ama” and a Christmas tree inspired black and white design with a single red ornament in the shape of a heart:
Project Runway fans may remember Jessica Simpson was a judge on the Season 8 finale and she argued fervently for Mondo to win, along with host Heidi Klum, but the title would eventually go to Gretchen Jones seemingly based on the persuasive arguments of seasoned fashion critics (And PR judges) Michael Kors and Nina Garcia.
Heidi Klum has since walked the walk in support of Mondo by wearing his controversial black and white bubble dress to the AFI screening of Black Swan November 11, and now Jessica Simpson is able to walk the walk as well by by wearing a Mondo skull shirt! She tweeted the day before the shirts were to go on sale, “Check out my fav Proj Runway contestant Mondo’s limited edition Tees for @PiperlimeBrand benefiting @amfAR! Avail Dec 1.”
I haven’t seen Nina or Michael out wearing Gretchen’s clothes, have you?
