Kim Kardashian has won $2.7 million (£2.2 million) in a lawsuit against Missguided executives for using her name and likeness to sell low-cost knockoffs

of her dresses. The brand's executives will also reportedly have to pay the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star's legal fees. "Missguided has 

time and again used Kardashian's name and likeness without her permission on its social media platforms to

promote the sale of its garments," the judge said during the hearing. According to TMZ, members of the court noted that the brand's website has entire

pages dedicated to selling cheap copies of outfits Kim has worn and include images of the 38-year-old, suggesting she is associated with that company.

Kanye West's wife won the case after Misguided USA representatives failed to respond to the lawsuit; therefore, Kim was automatically awarded

the sum in a default judgment. It has been stated that the company is prohibited from using the celebrity's image and trademark.

In the initial lawsuit, Kim's attorney, Michael Kump, alleged that his client was upset that brand executives had posted photographs of her and tagged her in their posts. 

He explained that they did so "to capitalize on her celebrity status and social media following to promote the sale of their upcoming product," he said in a statement.
