Kim Kardashian scored a huge victory and won millions of dollars following her lawsuit against a dress company for using her image to sell its dresses.

A judge awarded the 38-year-old reality star $2.7 million in damages against the company and another $60,000 in attorneys’ fees against Missguided USA for using her body, face and name on its website and social media platforms to sell “its clothing,” according to TMZ in a piece published Wednesday.

The ruling said that Missguided used photos of the reality star, making it appear that she was connected to the brand.

Back in February, the “Keeping Up With The Kardshians” star sued the company. She won a default judgement after the dress brand never responded to the star’s suit.

The court also has blocked the company from using the reality star’s trademarks, which includes her face and other assets.
