Paris Fashion Week Spotlight: Chanel

Because Karl Lagerfeld does not do anything on a small scale, for Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2015 show, he staged a feminist rally, complete with an array of big name models (think: Gisele, Daphne Groeneveld, Joan Smalls, Georgia May Jagger, Caroline de Maigret, etc.), placards, and megaphones. See the collection, as well as some of our favorite detail shots, below …

Model Files $1.1M Lawsuit Against Elizabeth Arden, Bed Bath & Beyond

New Zealand-born model Kata Greaney filed a $1.1 million lawsuit last month against cosmetics brand, Elizabeth Arden, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and MSA, a New York-based modeling agency, among others, in connection with an allegedly unauthorized use of her image. According to Greaney’s complaint, which was filed in the Southern District of New York for claims of unfair competition, violations of New York Civil Rights Law, unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, and breach of contract, the defendants used her image on the packaging of Elizabeth Arden bathrobes without her authorization and without compensating her for such usage. Greaney, who has walked for Prada, Catherine Malandrino, Karen Walker and Roberto Cavalli and appeared in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Marie Claire, shot the images at issue in 2011. The contract she signed specified that the images “would be used solely in connection with a pamphlet or brochure for the [White Plains, New York-based] spa” where the shoot took place, and in exchange, Greaney was paid $320. According to her complaint, “At no time during the photoshoot did anyone mention Elizabeth Arden, or that Ms. Greaney’s image would be used on packaging in a national campaign in connection with Elizabeth Arden or Bed, Bath & Beyond.”

Paris Fashion Week Spotlight: Saint Laurent

Saint Laurent’s creative director (and more or less its honorary CEO) Hedi Slimane took to the runway this evening to show his Spring/Summer 2015 collection for Saint Laurent. In fact, Slimane himself did not grace the runway at all, certainly not by chance, I am sure, but some of his favorite faces (think: Lili Sumner, Harleth Kuusik, Sarah Engelland, and Grace Hartzel, etc.) hit the catwalk in Slimane-designed wares, walking amongst a Slimane-designed set while Slimane-selected music played. Hedi was simultaneously everywhere and out of sight. See the collection in its entirety below  …

The Kardashians Have Been Sued Yet Again for their Makeup Collection

Kim-Kardashian-for-CR-Fashion-Book-2

The Kardashians have been sued yet again over their Khroma Beauty collection. You may recall that the reality television sisters launched their makeup venture last year, only to be slapped with multiple trademark infringement lawsuits, including one from Lee Tillett, the owner of the federally registered Kroma trademark. Boldface Licensing + Branding, the company that owns the right to license Khroma Beauty, filed a lawsuit seeking declaratory relief that it was not infringing Tillett’s mark and in response, the Florida-based makeup artist filed a $10 million trademark infringement suit against the Kardashian sisters, alleging that they began marketing their competing makeup line after Tillett began discussions with Kim Kardashian to represent the Kroma collection. Following a preliminary ruling in Tillett’s favor from the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California Judge Audrey B. Collins, the famous sisters agreeing to change the name of their company to Kardashian Beauty, to avoid infringing Tillett’s mark any further. Well, as of this week, Kroma Makeup EU, the exclusive European licensee of the the Kroma collection, has filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, for various trademark-related claims and is asking the court to award it significant monetary damages stemming from the Kardashians’ collection.
