This article contains an analysis of the first instance and appeal decisions of the "Rihanna" case. In particular, the authors consider the substantive law of passing off in the context of the unauthorised use of a celebrity’s image on a Topshop tank vest top. This is followed by a discussion of the consequences of the case for celebrities, consumers and stakeholders in the entertainment and fashion industries.
