Topshop wanted to ride the wave of Rihanna's remarkable commercial success so they created a screenprinted muscle tee featuring the Barbadian beauty's image and sold it under the name "Rihanna Tank." But no one from the mass-market merchant asked the hitmaker for approval to use the photograph of her taken during filming of a music video in Northern Ireland in 2011. Following failed negotiations between the two parties, RiRi brought suit against the chain's parent company Arcadia seeking $5 million in damages. On Wednesday, according to the BBC, the High Court in London ruled in the "Rude Boy" singer's favor in a two-minute judgment saying Topshop duped fans and may have damaged her reputation. An assessment of damages to be dispersed to the songstress has yet to be determined. Take a bow Ri, you won this round fair and square.

Rihanna has good reason to shine bright like a diamond! On July 31, a London judge ruled in the popstar's favor in a lawsuit she brought against British fast-fashion retailer Topshop for featuring a photo of her on a graphic T-shirt without the singer's consent.
