Pop singer Rihanna has won a landmark legal ruling against British clothes retailer Topshop over a T-shirt featuring a photo of her photo that was used without her permission.

Thursday's decision from the Court of Appeal in London clears the way for the Barbados-born New York resident to pick up 5 million dollars in compensation from Topshop parent company Arcadia.

In the first successful celebrity case of its kind, the court found that customers may have been deceived into buying the garment because they believed it was an approved image.

The 26-year-old, who has sold over 150 million records, has not commented on the judgement.
