Looks like someone has a lawyer. Supermodel-to-be, Cara Delevingne, has trademarked her name. The 20 year-old reportedly registered her name as an official trademark with a UK Intellectual Property office late last year in several classes ranging from accessories, fragrances, and other cosmetics, among others. And now, Delevingne is working on gaining federal rights to her name in the U.S. According to her registration, which was filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in March 2013 and subsequently registered in May 2014, Delevingne has the exclusive right to use her name in connection with cosmetics, jewelry, clothing and an array of accessories.
Not surprisingly, given the rise of models trying their hands at an array of other business ventures (think: clothing collections, accessories lines, music, movies, cookies - if you're Karlie Kloss, etc.), there are a number of other models with U.S. trademark applications in the works: Gisele, for instance, applied to register her name for use in connection with cosmetics. Karlie Kloss applied late last year to register her name for marketing purposes and fashion modeling. Abbey Lee Kershaw has registered "Abbey Lee" in several classes: cosmetics, jewelry, leather goods, clothing and entertainment services.
