Aguilera's fashion disaster
09:30 20 March 2005
Christina Aguilera has been axed as the face of a British fashion label - after branding celebrities who had their own clothing range as "tacky".
The 'Dirrty' singer had signed a multi-million dollar contract to promote the clothes for Basic Box but after her comments livid bosses decided to drop her and may even sue for damages.
A Basic Box spokesman is quoted as saying: "Following Christina Aguilera's negative comments in the media regarding celebrities who bring out their own clothing labels, we have terminated the licence agreement.
"We are extremely disappointed. We thought she was totally behind the project so her comments came as something of a shock."
Company bosses say they've invested a huge amount of time and money into the range and believe the damages could run into "several million dollars".
Despite signing her deal with Basic Box, earlier this month Christina blasted celebrities for bringing out their own clothing lines and said she would never dream of launching her own as it would look like her singing career was over.
She said at the time: "I just think it is so tacky. I have always thought that it's one of those things that just makes people look like they don't know what to do any more."
