Nadia Plesner wanted to make a point that the media cares more about Paris Hilton then they do just about anything else. So she created a t-shirt, that t-shirt has now caused a firestorm of controversy and a lawsuit from Louie Vuitton. They are claiming that Nadia improperly used the likeness of the LV bag in her t-shirt and that if she doesn’t top it’s usage they will sue her for $20,000 a day.

As I was reading the book ”Not on our watch” by Don Cheadle and John Prendergast this summer, I felt horrified by the fact that even with the genocide and other ongoing atrocities in Darfur, Paris Hilton was the one getting all the attention. Is it possible that show business have outruled common sense?

If you can’t beat them, join them. This is why I have chosen to mix the cruel reality with showbiz elements in my drawing.”

If you look closely at the bag on the t-shirt it doesn’t use the LV it uses SL. But all of us fashionistas know what bag this is. So what do you think? Should Nadia change her image or is this all the attention this t-shirt has gotten enough for people to pay more attention to what’s going on in Dufar?
