Kate Hudson Sued for Allegedly Stealing Hair Care Idea


About a year ago, we reported that Kate Hudson was releasing her own line of hair care products that would benefit global wildlife conservation.  Well, looks like she may be in a bit of hot water! 

Los Angeles-based 220 Laboratories is suing the actress, 29, and hairstylist David Babaii for fraud, misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contract, among other complaints.

The company claims she and Babaii stole a top-secret recipe to create their own line of hair care products.

In its suit, 220 Laboratories says it was the only supplier of volcanic ash in the United States and that it entered an “oral contract” with Hudson and Babaii in 2006 to develop and manufacture hair products.

The company claims that, after revealing their “confidential” ingredient list to Hudson and Babaii in November, the two then took the ash samples and shopped around to find a cheaper deal.

220 Laboratories claims Hudson and Babaii even used promo footage of the 220 team collecting ash with their new manufacturer, Universal.

220 Laboratories is seeking an unspecified amount in damages and attorneys’ fees, as well as an injunction against competitors’ use of their products.

“Kate and her attorneys are only just learning of the complaint, as Kate has not yet been served,” her rep tells E! News. “Kate does not know the plaintiffs and has never met with them or spoken with them. Her representatives believe that the claims are baseless and without merit and intend to vigorously defend the lawsuit.”

Hot Right Now: Yellow Eye Shadow


GET THE LOOK: “Bright primary colors are so in for clothes right now, but you should diffuse them for your makeup,” advises makeup artist Natalie DiStefano of the Rita Hazan Salon in NYC. “Easter yellow is too full force, distracting and unflattering,” says DiStefano, who recommends hues with shimmer to dilute the shade.


INSIDER TRICK: One word: Cream. “Straight yellow powder can look chalky, so look for a cream shadow you can easily spread and control,” adds DiStefano.

Christina Ricci’s beauty advice.


Christina Ricci has a simple beauty philosophy: “I don’t think you should try to look like you’re not wearing makeup,” she has said. “What’s the point? You might as well put makeup on and have fun with it.” The edgy star has been in the public eye for almost all of her 28 years and isn’t afraid to go from goth to glam and back again.

“Her look is hard rock meets couture,” her hairstylist Richard Marin has said. “One day, she’s super funky; the next, she’s in a gown.” It’s no surprise then that Ricci recently braved a daring new haircut. As makeup artist Beth Katz has observed, “She’s very comfortable with herself.”
