Kim Kardashian Won $2.7 Million

in a Knockoff Lawsuit Against Missguided

Fast fashion brands may have to slow their roll. According to Page Six, Kim Kardashian just won a lawsuit against Missguided USA. Back in February, Kardashian slapped a lawsuit on the brand, alleging that it used her likeness without her permission to sell lower-priced versions of the clothes that she wore. She was asking for $10 million, but ended up getting $2.7 million, plus $60,000 in legal fees for her troubles. It wasn't a hard-fought battle, however, because Missguided USA never responded to the suit. The $2.7 million was awarded by default.

Kardashian publicly called out fast-fashion brands on Twitter before she filed. In a post showing her in a then-unreleased Yeezy look, she pleaded with fashion labels to at least give her the opportunity to wear the finished product before they made copies of it.
