Brooke Shields is known for her eyebrows, but that doesn’t mean she wants brands to name products in tribute to her facial features. At least not without her permission. According to The Fashion Law Shields is suing Charlotte Tilbury over an eyebrow pencil named the “Brooke S.” Additionally the lawsuit, filed in California, names major retailers — including Nordstrom and Sephora — as defendants.
While the product doesn’t refer to Shields’ full name, her team believes her reputation is closely tied enough to eyebrows to create confusion. The lawsuit claims that her “bold eyebrows have been the trademark of her look and a target for endorsements and collaborations” since the beginning of her career. Shields says she has been “investigating and developing potential opportunities to create her own cosmetics line with an emphasis on eyebrow-enhancing products,” and that Tilbury’s product could “interfere” with her ability to market said products.
Shields is asking the court to “force the defendants to cease their use of her name,” and stop all sales of products named “Brooke S.” She is also asking for unspecified monetary damages. At time of writing the product is still available on the Charlotte Tilbury website. For what it’s worth, Tilbury has named numerous products after famous women.
