Kim Kardashian has won $2.5 million in damages after accusing fast fashion brand Missguided of imitating her outfits.

The reality star and fashion mogul has won her lawsuit and $60,000 in lawyer fees after taking the brand to court in America.

TMZ reports that Kardashian claims Missguided was "using her name and likeness" without permission in order to sell knock-offs of her Yeezy dress.

The win was allegedly as a result of Missguided failing to respond to the suit, and as a result the star was awarded the millions in damages by default. The mum-of-four originally sought $10 million

According to the US publication, the court ruled in favour of the 38-year-old because the Missguided website features "entire pages dedicated to selling and knocking off dresses inspired by Kim."

The issue is their use of images to falsely pretend that Kim Kardashian endorse the brand.

Kim took to Twitter in February to slam the brand's copycat ways, writing;

"It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas."

Fans were quick to point out that her younger sister Kylie has taken ideas from young designers too, but that's a whole other story. Kim is known for wearing clothes from some of the world's most revered designers.

The affordable fashion company responded Kim's frustrated tweet to by writing, "The devil works hard but Missguided works harder. Kim Kardashian: You've only got a few days before this drops online."

The brand is apparently now permanently banned from using Kardashian's trademarks and likeness to market it's merchandise.

Missguided, founded in 2009 in Manchester, has never been shy when it comes to replicating looks of celebrities and certain images to promote it's website.

Looks like Kylie Jenner and big sis Khloe Kardashian are staying strong by partying on amid the Tristan Thompson/Jordyn Woods scandal.

It was only last week that Kylie's supposed best friend Jordyn allegedly acted inappropriate with Kardashian's apparently boyfriend Tristan, and predictably sh*t hit the fan.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars enjoyed a night out on Sunday despite all of the drama, and of corurse, they looked glamorous AF.

With diamanté bodysuits hugging the curves of Kourtney and Khloe, Kendall's gorgeous red vinyl dress and LEGS FOR DAYS, the family look more stunning than ever. We ain't jealous, though… only a little.

The 21-year-old Kylie Cosmetics founder shared moments of herself and 34-year-old Khloé on their way to an Oscar’s after party (was it Beyoncé and Jay-Z's?).

Her big night out comes in the wake of her girls trip with Kim Kardashian and BFF Malika Haqq, which was to take her mind off the Tristan infidelity scandal.

38-year-old Kim documented the trip on her Instagram Stories, with PEOPLE claiming they headed to Palm Springs.

“Kim took Khloé to Palm Springs one night before the weekend so she could have a relaxing getaway,” says the insider, adding that Khloé is “doing okay.”

“Her family continues to support her,” the source says. “Everyone is trying to cheer her up and be around to help. They all still talk a lot about what happened. Their opinion hasn’t changed- what happened between Tristan and Jordyn is inexcusable.”

According to the source, Kylie is struggling to move past the alleged betrayal caused by longtime best friend Jordyn.

“Kylie still seems torn,” the source says. “It’s going to be very difficult for her to cut Jordyn completely out of her life.” Jordyn has apparently blamed the incident with Tristan on alcohol.

“Her story keeps changing a bit, and it’s almost like she is digging herself deeper,” a different source told PEOPLE.

“It’s been a week now of nonsense explaining from her side. Everyone thinks she wanted to hook up with Tristan and she just didn’t think she was gonna get caught.”

Brands have been impersonating Kim Kardashian and her family's style for YEARS (have you seen Boohoo and Fashion Nova's websites?) but now Kim's had enough.

Fast-fashion companies have been stealing original designers from "true designers", and the KK Beauty mogul has finally commented on the Instagram-type brand lookalikes.

She wrote a host of tweets addressing the issue, and has officially filed a lawsuit against Missguided for $10 million;

"It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas."

She addressed the Yeezy controversy, airing out her annoyance that fashion organisations have been blatantly copying her husband Kanye West's designs;

"I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent," she said.

She continued, referencing the Thierry Mugler dress she recently wore;

"Only two days ago, I was privileged enough to wear a one-of-a-kind vintage Mugler dress and in less than 24 hours it was knocked off and thrown up on a site – but it's not for sale. You have to sign up for a waitlist because the dress hasn’t even been made to sell yet."

"My relationships with designers are very important to me. It's taken me over a decade to build them and I have a huge amount of respect for the amount of work that they put into bringing their ideas to life."

"I often plan for weeks, sometimes months, and even a year in advance, and I’m grateful for every fashion moment those designers and their dresses have helped me create," she tweeted.

While Kim didn't actually name any fashion brands, she filed a $10 million lawsuit against Missguided for using her trademarked name and likeness to promote it's product online, according to E! News.

E! News obtained the documents detailing the lawsuit against the UK-based company. In the suit, Kim writes that their actions are a "blatant and willful violation of her statutory and common law rights of publicity." 

The document states that "companies have sought out ways to leverage Kim's celebrity status and social media following without seeking her consent," and have purposefully allowed her to be "an unwitting and unwilling spokesperson of their products."

The lawsuit also states that Missguided has used Kim's likeness for their "marketing and sales strategy" without the TV personality's consent.

"Like other 'fast fashion' companies, Missguided, which sells clothing throughout the world on its website (among others), has become notorious for 'knocking off' the clothing worn by celebrities like Kardashian," the suit continues.

"Missguided does not merely replicate the looks of these celebrities as seen on red carpets, in paparazzi photos, and in social media posts. Missguided systematically uses the names and images of Kardashian and other celebrities to advertise and spark interest in its website and clothing."

Missguided issued the following statement to E! News.

"We haven't received any notification of legal action, but in any event any action based on online banter would be meritless," the statement read. "Missguided shoppers know the score- We're about the celeb look, for people without their bucks. For the record, as much as we love her style, we're not working with Kim on anything."

Last February, the reality TV star posed in an unreleased gold dress her husband Kanye West made for her last summer, and wrote on Instagram;

"P.S. fast fashion brands, can you please wait until I wear this in real life before you knock it off," she captioned her post. Fashion Nova created basically the same dress not long afterwards.

"Hey @KimKardashian, We just couldn't help ourselves," they wrote on Instagram. Cheeky bunch they are…

As far as we know, Kim has yet to file a lawsuit against Fashion Nova. Missguided also copied the exact same dress.

They're fairly shameless, we have to admit. Time will tell if the Kardashian manages to quench the copycats.

Kanye is well-known around the world for his….controversial… and often not actually requested opinions. Scratch that, they're rarely requested, if ever.

However, he gives them anyway, even to his wife Kim Kardashian; queen of social media and reality TV.

We've already seen him controlling her closet, essentially throwing out her entire wardrobe so he could re-do the whole thing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2012. He EVISCERATES her clothes choice.

As if that wasn't cringe-worthy enough, Kim's make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic has revealed that Kanye doesn't hold back his thoughts on his wife's beauty and cosmetic routine.

During Dedivanovic’s The Master Class last weekend, Kim's long-time MUA let it slip that Kanye West has plenty of opinions about the choice of products.

He allegedly even offered to pay Mario to move to L.A. from New York so he could be with Kim legit 24 hours a day, according to People.

“Kanye is actually really opinionated sometimes,” Kim said. “He will come in and be like, ‘You know your blush is a little heavy.’ Or say, ‘What are you doing? That’s not the shape of your lip.'”

Essentially, Kanye has moved on from her wardrobe to her makeup, and is obsessed with Mario being around for Kim's glamour;

“Kanye actually called me and said, ‘Alright how much will it cost for you to move back to L.A.? I want you here for her,'” Mario said.

Kanye also allegedly calls Mario on a regular basis to assist in maintaining Kim's face.

She commented; “He will call Mario without telling me! And Mario shows up without me knowing and he is like, ‘Oh Kanye called me and said it was a makeup emergency.'”

Eh, what? What are your thoughts on the matter; is this just incredibly rude and controlling or does Kanye just want the best for his wifey?

News hit recently that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are expecting their fourth child via surrogate, and already the parenting qualms are emerging.

A source has revealed to People that the rapper and reality star are already on the hunt for the best possible clothing for baby number four, and are officially "in nesting mode."

Despite having three other children, five-year-old North, three-year-old Saint and 11-month-old Chicago, apparently the famous couple want BRAND NEW clothes for their newest family edition.

“They don’t really do hand-me-downs, so each baby is like their first,” according to the source, who added that the reality star and rapper husband donate the used clothes to charity.

“They’re buying everything they need for him, and Kanye insists they go top-of-the-line for everything. So they’ve been shopping," the source added.

Apparently the Yeezy designer is a major online shopper; “When he can’t sleep, he gets online and buys whatever he wants. A lot of what they’re getting, they order online.”

That is one lucky baby, by the sounds of things.

“They’re going to have everything the baby needs pretty soon. And the rest of the family is big on getting gifts, too,” the source claims. “This baby is going to have everything he needs.”

People also claimed last week that Kim is planning a huge upcoming baby shower; "Family and friends will be able to honour the couple with gifts soon enough."

“Kim plans on having a baby shower for No. 4 too. They are looking forward to another baby.” Their son is due in the spring, which means excitement is building for the baby.

In November 2017 the Kardashian-West clan had an extravagant party in honour of Chicago.

Fans of Kardashian West may recall the extravagant party thrown in honor of Chicago in November 2017, which was filled with cherry blossoms and her famous family members.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star formerly commented during an interview with Elle that “my home and my heart feel really full right now,” she said she was open to having another child, but it would be her last.

“I don’t think I could handle more than that. My time is spread really thin,” she admitted. “And I think it’s important that in all couples, the mom gives the husband as much attention as the kids.”

The couple appear to be going all out for their latest, and possible last, feature to their fabulous family.

Digging deep into the psyche of Kanye West would definitely be an interesting experience.

From his thoughts on art and politics and his cryptic Twitter presence to that massive ego, love him or hate him, Kanye is a pretty fascinating creature. 

Clearly Washington University agrees, as they have created a course called "Politics of Kanye West: Black Genius and Sonic Aesthetics."

Not that Kanye needs anyone else calling him a genius, but professor Jefffrey McCune, who founded the course, hopes to look at the rappers impact on society through the 14-week course. 

The course will also use Kanye's hip hop influence as a vehicle to explore other areas of society like sexuality and culture.

And yes, there will be a Taylor Swift module.

“I knew my students had connections to Kanye,” professor McCune told Time

“They’re always referencing his music and performances and videos and fashion." 

"What better time than now to take seriously Kanye West as a cultural icon? I’m always interested in how he’s pushing whatever boundaries.”

While there is no disputing that Yeezus is seen by many as a cultural icon, what can one do with a degree in Kanye West though?

If you're heading to Brown Thomas this weekend, get ready for YEEZY mania.

September 24 will see Kanye West's new YEEZY BOOST 350 V2s hit the shelves of Brown Thomas in Dublin.

Apparently, Kanye has changed the shoe game this year and redesigned his famous footwear with "premium materials" and "unmistakable aesthetics."

The 350 V2 will see a brighter version of the runner, as a streak of solar red covers the middle of the shoe with the words… or letters… 'SPLY-350'.

So, if you fancy having the "world's most influential and sought-after shoe," then you'll need €220 to spare.

And, if you don't fancy waiting in line, you can also sign up for a chance to buy the latest version here. No more quese… Sweet!

It is safe to say there is never a dull moment in the world of Kanye West!

The latest drama has been sparked due to a controversial model casting-call for the rapper's upcoming fashion show.

In a tweet sent out by Kanye, "Multiracial women only" was outlined as one of the few criteria for potential models, which has sent social media into a frenzy. 

The models were also asked to arrive make-up free, and to "come as you are."

This tweet comes just days before "Yeezy Season 4" is set to debut on the opening day of New York Fashion Week.

Thousands have people have been throwing shade at Kanye, and his "racist" tweet.

"I assume you're joking?" wrote one tweeter, while another wrote "How do you even class multi racial… are you doing blood tests or something?"

Despite the major backlash online, it has been reported that hundreds of potential models showed up to the casting in Manhattan.

Yesterday, it was reported that Kylie Jenner signed a seven-figure deal to be the new face of Puma, as well as its brand ambassador.

But in a weird turn of events, Kylie's brother-in-law Kanye has gone on yet another Twitter rant about how Kylie is on the "Yeezy team."

Kylie has walked in two of Kanye's fashion shows, so it seems that the rapper might be feeling a little pressure ahead of the release of his new line and album.

The 38-year-old took to Twitter to share his views (again) and even said that the brand can even have its money back:

As we all know, Kanye has his own shoe line with Adidas, and he clearly doesn't want Kylie to make any money for his competition.

So, is Kanye right or is this just another stunt since his album is about to land?

With every interview Kanye gives, he makes it more and more difficult to tell when his new studio album, SWISH, will be released. 

There's still no information on when that's going to happen (hopefully soon) BUT last night, the rapper unexpectedly shared two new songs to his Soundcloud account. 

The first song is a reworking of 8o8s & Heartbreak song, Say You Will, featuring Caroline Shaw, the youngest composer to win a Pulitzer Prize for music. 

The second is Kanye's version of The Weeknd's Tell Your Friends, which Mr West produced for Beauty Behind the Madness

It hasn't been confirmed that these songs will make it on to his new album, but they do give Yeezy fans a glimmer of hope that SWISH might actually happen one day soon.

During the week Kanye West debuted his new Yeezy clothing line at New York Fashion Week. The controversial show attracted lots of attention. Firstly because of the star studded FROW, at which North West completely stole everyone’s attention.

Then there was also the fact that his designs have become the topic of much debate. While his family, the Kardashians including, have yet to stop raving about his designs other celebs are not so taken with his vision.

Rapper Ice-T, well known for his role on Law & Order: SVU as well as his hip-hop fame, took to social media to let the public know exactly how he felt about the new designs.

He definitely didn’t hold back:

He posted a photo of several of the models dressed in a range of black and green outfits from the rapper’s debut collection, Yeezy Season 1. He then added that because he’s “not POP” he can speak freely about his opinions on the designs.

While Kanye’s latest collection featured mostly nude shades perhaps Ice was doing something of a ‘throwback Thursday’?

Kanye has not commented on the tweet as of yet, but Ice isn’t the first person to take issue with the Yeezy line.

When Kanye announced that his show would take place this week, it came quite some time after other, non-celeb designers had done their promotional rounds for their shows.

Specifically, designer Anne Bowen was pretty miffed about the whole thing and told Women’s Wear Daily:

“Our show date has been scheduled for months and has been on the Fashion Calendar for weeks…  Yesterday we learned that Kanye West is having a show at the same time on the same date as ours.

 

A photo posted by ANNE BOWEN (@anne_bowen) on

Kanye knows he is a media sensation and it is just not ethical to do this. It's like we are David and he is Goliath. We have put our heart and soul into our show, and should not be stepped on like this."

For months she was seen at high-profile events sporting an array of eye-catching wigs in black, blonde and even blue.

Kylie Jenner later admitted the reason behind her love of artificial hair: her own tresses were seriously damaged after years of dyeing, styling and straightening.

However, the sacrifice seemingly paid off – and she marked her recent 18th birthday by swapping to a gorgeous ashy blonde.

"It took months of not dyeing my hair and wearing wigs to get my hair back to health so I can do this!!" she explained on Instagram while unveiling her new look.

So why is Ms Jenner, and just two weeks after the dramatic change, now back to wearing wigs?

Donning bright green, mermaid-style locks, she was on hand to launch the Sugar Factory American Brasserie in NYC – to which she also wore a stunning ivory crop top and matching pencil skirt from surprisingly affordable Aussie label, Zachery

Although known for her love of mega-expensive designers, Kylie's outfit cost just €125 in total – €52 for the top, and €72.50 for the skirt.

Still, it was very much her hair that proved the talking point of the event – with many fans speculating that the reality TV star's bleached mane is already suffering.

Indeed, in recent days her mop has certainly looked tired and stressed, with the originally 'dirty blonde' hue turning to a more brassy shade. 

As well as successfully launching the Sugar Factory, an event to which hundreds of fans and photographers showed up, Ms Jenner is enjoying something of a boon in popularity since turning 18 last month.

Despite the presence of numerous other high-profile celebrities, she and her rapper boyfriend Tyga, 25, have been the toast of New York Fashion Week.

Yesterday, she also modelled pieces from her brother-in-law Kanye West's new Yeezy season 2 collection, the unveiling of which took place at the Skylight Modern venue in Manhattan's swish Chelsea district. 

That and the app that she unleashed this week is proving to be a runaway hit.

And on social media, she is still the world's most viewed user on Snapchat, while on Instagram she now boasts some 36million followers. 

 

I love you guys so so much.
