Singer Rihanna has won a legal case against British high street fashion chain Topshop over the use of her image on a T-shirt.

On Thursday, London’s Court of Appeal upheld an earlier ban on the store selling the garment featuring a photo of the Barbadian pop star, which was used without her permission, Reuters reports.

In 2013, Rihanna sued Topshop’s parent company, Arcadia Group, saying that shoppers would be deceived into thinking she had authorized the sleeveless shirt and it was therefore damaging to her brand.

Thursday’s ruling dismissed Topshop’s appeal against the ban, finding the store had infringed upon the “Diamonds” singer’s rights.

The image was a photograph taken during a video shoot in 2011.
