Blog: Clooney takes on fashion show

Joe Ayling | 7 July 2010

When describing your latest fashion range as 'get the Coleen look' or 'Beckham would be proud to wear it', beware of the possible consequences.

According to this report, fans of Hollywood star George Clooney are expected to arrive in their droves to an Italian court where he will claim his own name was used incorrectly.

The allegation is that Clooney's name was used to promote a fashion show and a line of clothing by three Italian fashionistas without the actor's consent.

They have reportedly been charged with forgery, fraud and possession of stolen goods, in a story line that would rival some of Clooney's best films.

Whether the events in Milan inspire the making of 'Ocean's Three' remains to be seen - we'll see who wins first.
