Heidi Klum jewelry sued  for v dollars

(makeushot.com) - Heidi Klum is being sued by luxury jeweler Van Cleef and Arpels claiming that Klum's company copied their vintage clover jewelry design. The designs do look an awful lot alike!

The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan Federal Court on Friday and seeks more than $25,000 in damages from Klum's company Heidi Klum GmbH and Mouawad USA. Klum had teamed up with Robert Mouawad for the fine jewelry line.

The lawsuit claims that Klum's company attempted to gain benefit from 'Van Cleef's esteemed reputation by creating and selling a similar clover design from Van Cleef's vintage Alhambra jewelry line.'

Klum said she was inspired by a clover symbol that she first saw at the Duomo in Milan.
