Bono's Wife Sues Stella Mccartney Over Perfume

The wife of U2 star BONO is taking legal action against SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY's daughter STELLA in a dispute over one of the fashion designer's fragrances.
MCCartney, who designs her own Stella MCCartney line, added a perfume collection to her fashion house in 2002 with her first fragrance Stella. She revitalised the scent with a new version called Stella Nude, but the title has infuriated Bono's wife Ali Hewson, who runs a company called Nude Skincare.
Hewson and her business partner Bryan Meehan have filed suit against MCCartney, arguing that the use of the word 'nude' amounts to alleged copyright infringement, according to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "Nude Skincare is suing for compensation, not because of anything to do with the scent of the perfume but because of branding and the use of the word 'nude'. Stella isn't likely to make any changes now because the fragrance is coming out in September and nudity is a big part of the perfume's look. The bottle, for example, is a nude colour."
The case is set to go to court in London this autumn (09).

Jealous Cow! Bono's wife has nothing better to do, so she's going to sue over a word. She's jealous because all she did was lend her name to a company, while Stella made it on her own from the ground up.Stella rocks!

I regret, Stella McCartney hasn´t made it for her own from the ground. Always 50 % had had another firm and she has now sold her name and firm to a french company. She never had made a winning with her firm, but had had a lot of media. Perhaps her father has paid for her 50 %. It was only the name. I regret. J. Galliano had made it for his own, and he is absolutely great. More than wonderful.
