For The Stans: BeyBey May Get Sued Over Leggings, Covers Self Magazine

- By Bossip Staff

On why she does charity work: “I’ve always felt that you should give because it’s what you can do to help. You don’t do it to get praised. For a long time, being quiet about what I did was a conscious decision. When you look around at all that’s wrong in the world, the need to do something, no matter how big or how small, is clear.”

On what motivates her: “Sisterhood means everything to me. All the charities I’m involved with are special, but I find any organization that focuses on women and children really motivating. GEMS and the young ladies the nonprofit helps are very close to my heart. And what I took away from the clients at Phoenix House changed my life. These were real people who touched me so much that I had to go beyond making a donation. They’re gaining skills at the Cosmetology Center, which will help them earn a living and find their way out of substance abuse—it’s a testament to the possibility of second chances.”

On how anyone can make a difference: “Think about what truly touches you and motivates you to help, then start locally. Once it’s in your heart to give, you’ll have to follow through. I am a happy woman—very happy—because I know that I’ve worked hard, and I love being able to give back.”

In other BeyBey news, an Icelandic company named E-label says the singer straight ganked their leggings design for her House of Dereon label:

“This is naturally huge and I am still half in shock. I didn’t twig straight away that this was her own label: I just thought she was wearing our leggings. It is practically just copy/paste,” says Heba Hallgrimsdottir, one of the owners of E-label.

You can see the leggings in question among the promo shots for the Dereon Autumn Collection.

The E-label leggings were designed by Asgrimur Mar Fridriksson and are black, studded with metal spikes on the front. Frettabladid reported last November that Beyonce had bought exactly that pair of leggings from the E-label brand at a branch of Topshop in London.

Asked whether E-label will attempt to sue, Heba said she could not answer that question as things stand right now.

“I have only just heard about this and no decision has yet been taken. We need to inspect her brand’s trousers closer because, according to law, it is not copied if a certain number of things have been changed from the original design,” Heba said.

She added that Beyonce’s E-label leggings were bought from the Edit section of Topshop, which sell designs from little-known labels.
When asked, Heba said that E-label has not copyrighted its design, but believes that widespread media coverage of Beyonce’s purchase last November, both in Iceland and overseas, would be evidence enough to prove plagiarism – if E-label eventually decides that the new design was indeed copied from their own.

“But if people want to buy the original leggings, they can pop in to us on Laugavegur 27,” she added with a laugh.

SMH… Sounds like BeyBey needs some help in the creative department!

  • fashion student

    theres no such thing as copyrighting fashion because you can never know who created the design thats why there will always be high end designer and replica with no lawsuits, there just trying to get some publicity

    • lala

      Actually there is, Jimmy Choo copyrighted his red sole so NO ONE else use it. And you’re a fashion student. Right.

  • lala

    Bey is a fraud, how many times has she been sued for taking someone elses lyrics, beats, & fashion designs. This chick has no sense of creativity and is taking other peoples fashion ideas and calling it her own. I won’t be surprised if in a few months someone sues her over her scent because it smells like theirs. Give it time it’ll come.

    • ooh no you didn't


  • lala

    WTF, that was stupid, they’re the same damn leggings. How can one be ugly and the other not be, oh let me guess because bey “created” it, and I use that word loosely. They’re both ugly don’t care whose name is on it, I wouldn’t wear’em.

  • ladybug

    The red sole shoe trademark is Christian Louboutina (a brother) not Jimmy Choo.

    • lala

      Umm it’s Jimmy Choo actually

    • lala

      Actually you are correct it is Christian Louboutin, I was misinformed. You are correct. Somebody told me wrong my bad. Good thing I’m not a fashion student lol.

  • lala

  • rheanichole

    Two questions: does the henna tattoo have a meaning or is it random designs? And is Jay taking her pic on the boat or is she doing a photo shoot? The pose made me wonder….

  • Bopa

    More than likely Camp Bey is going to through the designers a bone. Send them a check or ask them to design for Bey’s next tour. Whatever it takes to get them to shut up like she does with every other person she steals from.

  • Bopa

    on a side note…wtf is that on her head?
