    The Washington Post reports the campaign in question—the “Super Cute” multimedia ads—feature someone who some may assume is Kardashian, when in actuality it’s model Melissa Molinaro.

    “I’ve worked hard to support the products I’m personally involved with and that I believe in,” Kardashian said in a statement. The celeb has her own fashion line--Dash--as well as several fragrances. 

    The suit, filed Tuesday, seeks unspecified damages for using a Kardashian lookalike to sell clothes.

    Kardashian’s spokesperson later added, “Kim Kardashian is immediately recognizable, and is known for her look and style. Her identity and persona are valuable.”

    Gap, who owns Old Navy, gave no comment.
