Kim Kardashian Awarded $2.7 Million in Knockoff Dress Lawsuit

Kim Kardashian has won her legal case against Missguided USA.

The 38-year-old reality star was awarded $2.7 million in damages and another $60,000 in attorneys’ fees from the company after she sued them back in February for using her face, body, and name to sell knockoff dresses, according to TMZ.

Additionally, the court has permanently blocked Missguided from using photos of Kim again.

“Missguided has repeatedly used Kardashian’s name and likeness without permission on its social media platforms to promote the sale of its clothing,” a California judge said in the ruling.

The court also pointed out that Missguided’s website has pages dedicated to selling and knocking off dresses inspired by Kim. The main offense is that they’re using photos of Kim to make customers believe that she is associated with the brand.

Kim Kardashian won the case by default, since Missguided never responded to her lawsuit.
