The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Liya Kebede’s Lemlem Branches into Homeware, Hermès and Uggs Win Big in Copyright Infringement Suits, and Azealia Banks Was Not Supposed to Perform at the Met Gala
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

Liya Kebede‘s apparel line, Lemlem, is branching out into exorbitantly priced home wares. Prices will range from $125 for a pillow to $325 for a hand woven cotton blanket. (ELLE)

Hermès was awarded $100 million in damages after winning their case against 34 impostor websites claiming to sell discount Birkin bags. The sites have all been shut down, and all the money in their respective PayPal accounts will go to paying off the hefty sum. (New York Post)

• Uggs also just won a nice chunk of money– $686 million to be exact–in a case against over 3,000 Chinese websites selling counterfeit shoes. Not only will money be seized from the site’s PayPal accounts, but if you’re looking to visit said offending sites, your browser will be redirected to Uggs’s official page. (Fashionista)



• Word is Azealia Banks lucked into her Met Ball gig after Nicki Minaj failed to sign a contract confirming her performance. Either way, it’s unsurprising that either rappers were invited, regardless of how some might feel about their respective personal styles. (NYPost)

MAC cosmetics is releasing Fashion Sets, a new collection featuring all your favorite MAC makeup. Each of the seven sets consists of three pieces: a lipstick, nail lacquer, and lipglass. The limited edition collection will be available from May 3rd to June 28th. (Nitrolicious)


Jean Paul Gaultier told Grazia that he respectfully disagrees with Mitch Winehouse‘s assessment of his couture collection tribute to his late daughter Amy. While Mr. Winehouse thought the show was “in bad taste,” Gaultier maintains that the collection was meant to be an “homage to her talent…. Since her death the media has focused too much on her problems. My show was intended as a celebration of her.” What do you think? (Daily Mail)

• Willow Smith is as precocious as usual in her new music video for Do it Like Me (Rockstar). I’m still in awe that an 11-year-old  could have more stage presence than a certain veteran 24-year old performer. (Daily Mail)

    Claire, I love the fashion law stories you are dishing. Keep posting more please! Also, I would love to see you interview someone who works on fashion law cases:-)

    Damn Jihan! You are straight aiming for Nicki & Rihanna heads with this post!

  5. Shanita says:

    Oooo Jihan! Takin jabs at ol girl huh? Hey, I agree 100%. Willow has that my-parents-are-famous-and-I-got-dem-showstoppa-genes charisma. Love her*

  6. LawyerChic says:

    I live for copyright law and trademark law. Kudos to Hermes and Uggs, counterfeiting is out of control!

  7. DarkEmpress says:

    I’ve said it before. Its one thing when another label imitates a style but it is just wrong when you fully copy a style and try to pass it off as authentic. A friend of mine is out $400 after buying a fake armani jacket.

  8. Indigo says:

    @DarkEmpress,that’s what happens when you’re paying for a name…

  9. hahahaha says:

    Whatttt? Rihanna a VETERAN? Funniest sh*t I’ve read all day. I do agree that Willow has more stage presence though.

  10. DivaFabulosa says:

    They also need to go after everyone counterfeiting Louis Vuitton and Gucci! I hate when I see girls with those fake bags!

  11. Chris Styles says:

    I can always tell when I’m reading. Johan post, lol. <3's it!

  12. Chris Styles says:

    *reading a Jihan post

  13. Grace says:

    I’m sick of people entertaining the awkward untalented Smith kids’ antics…

  14. Nononono says:

    I love Will Smith will all my heart, that’s my boo.

    But I don’t cosign on his offspring or the way his wife has been lookin and sounding. I guess swag doesn’t rub off.

    Willow is cute ofcourse, but eh, I am not digging the hair or the weird stuff.

  15. candylicker says:

    love willow

  16. JojoJagga says:

    Jada needs to let Willow do her homework and play with dolls, this will not look good in 5 years… At least Jaden’s still acting like a kid…
