In totally baffling fashion news today: Maggy London is suing Pamela Anderson for trademark infringement because she and Richie Rich staged two A*Muse fashion shows recently—one in New York and one in Miami. Maggy London claims that they trademarked "Muse" in 2002 and Anderson and Rich's "A*Muse" is "a disingenuous effort to disguise their infringing activities." The lawsuit demands Rich and Anderson stop using any "colorable imitation" of the trademark and Maggy London wants all the profits from the duo's design venture. Um, good luck with that. We're not even sure the collection was ever produced—or that anyone made any money off the "clothing line." [NY Post]
