Kim Kardashian was awarded millions for no absolute reason!
Kim Kardashian was awarded $2.7 million from a lawsuit and another $60,000 in attorney’s fees. The judge ruled in her favor against a clothing company that had been using her likeness to sell fashion.
“Misguided has repeatedly used Kardashian’s name and likeness without permission on its social media platforms to promote the sale of its clothing,” the judge said.
Missguided’s website, the court noted, has pages dedicated to selling knock-off dresses inspired by Kim. However, the real issue is that the company is using photos of Kim, insinuating that she’s affiliated with the brand, which she’s not.
he offending brand didn’t put up much of a fight, as it never responded to Kim’s lawsuit. Because of that Kim, TMZ said Kim “basically won by forfeit.”
Kim will never have to worry about Missguided again! The court permanently blocked the clothing company from essentially ever mentioning Kim’s name.
The star first filed a lawsuit against the company in February, just days after publicly shaming the company for promoting a gold dress. The gold dress was a near-identical but cheaper version of one of Kanye West’s Yeezy designs.
Kim Kardashian showed off the look in an Instagram shot from a fitting. She pleads for fast fashion brands to “please wait” until she wore it “in real life” before knocking it off.
Going through old fitting pics & found this gold look that Kanye made for me for my Miami trip last summer (I went w the neon vibes instead) P.S. fast fashion brands, can you please wait until I wear this in real life before you knock it off? 😂 pic.twitter.com/MZiGLmC0yI

Within a day, Missguided responded by doing exactly what Kim had feared.
“The devil works hard but Missguided works harder @kimkardashian you’ve only got a few days before this drops online,”
The company captioned a picture of a model wearing its version of the look.
Well, I think we can all say, the devil works hard, but Kim Kardashian works harder! OBVIOUSLY!
