Playboy is suing Fashion Nova over its sexy bunny costume

The Regina Georges of the world are shaking

Bad news for those that fall into the Regina George camp when it comes to Halloween costumes: Playboy is coming for Fashion Nova’s sexy bunny costumes. 

Having sent the fast fashion giant a cease and desist letter demanding it remove the set from its digital shelves, according to TMZ, the bunnies of the Playboy mansion are getting set to sue Fashion Nova after it continued to sell the costume. 

With the set made up of a black bodysuit, a bow-tie and collar, and tuxedo cuffs, as well as a pair of bunny ears and tail (duh), Fashion Nova have so far ignored Playboy’s requests to stop selling it. 

The brand did however change the costume’s name from ‘Bunny of the Month’ to titles including ‘Miss B Bunny’ and ‘Bunny Hop’, after Playboy pointed out it was extremely similar to its ‘Playmate of the Month’ trademark. 

Of course, it’s not the first time Fashion Nova has been called out for ripping off someone else’s design. Last November, Versace made moves to sue the brand after it claimed it copied its “most famous and recognisable designs” including that legendary green jungle dress J.Lo wore back in 2000. 

With legal proceedings currently underway, Playboy might be on its way to stopping Fashion Nova selling its bunny uniform, but what they’re going to do about literally every single fancy dress store selling their own iterations of the costume remains unclear. One down and a whole lot more to go, we guess. 

Fashion Nova is yet to respond.
