Drew Barrymore has been hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit by a fabric designer over a cushion pattern.

The Hollywood actress first partnered with executives at Walmart on the Drew Barrymore Flower Home collection back in March 2019, with the line comprised of decor and furniture pieces.

However, editors at TMZ reported on Thursday that Barrymore is facing a lawsuit from the team at Rule of Three Studio, who have claimed that she copied their Turkish Plume patterns on a cushion design.

Lawyers for the design studio have alleged that they started selling their version, which retails for between $315 and $565 (£250-£443), back in 2015, while the cushion in Barrymore’s range was launched last year.

They are suing both Barrymore and Walmart, and in court documents, requested that the company stop sales of the cushions and asked for all profits from the design as well additional damages.

The Santa Clarita Diet star and her representatives have not yet responded to the lawsuit.

Drew Barrymore Flower Home is the latest addition to Barrymore’s lifestyle empire, with the 45-year-old having first unveiled a range of cosmetics under the Flower banner in 2013 before going on to expand the line to include fragrance and eyewear.

“Drew Barrymore Flower Home is a whimsical, unpretentious collection of furniture and decor,” a Walmart spokesperson said of the designs at the time of the launch. “Inspired by Drew’s own personal aesthetic – and her ability to draw from every genre, style, and era – these gorgeous furnishings and must-have accents help you create a home that truly feels like an amazing mosaic map of yourself and your life.”

Drew Barrymore is learning to make peace with her natural grey hair colour.

In a thoughtful personal essay published in the latest issue of the U.K.’s Sunday Times Style magazine, the Santa Clarita Diet star reflected on the theme of “letting go” and how it also applies to her hair colour.

“Now I’m a mom and in my mid-forties, I have the hair colour I like – drama-free and more natural,” she shared, noting that while she still tints her locks, she is using a shade that resembles her real hue. “It takes 30 minutes to do my base of greys. I only barely cover them, so that the follicles can still grab the light as it grows out. (Yes, your greys can double as highlights with the right tint!)”

Drew’s frank approach to ageing was not the only part of the piece to catch fans’ attention, as the images of the actress that accompanied the essay were taken by her seven-year-old daughter Olive.

Reposting a candid snap of the mother-daughter photoshoot to her Instagram, the 45-year-old captioned the image with a dialogue between her and her eldest child.

“OLIVE: Why are you asking me to shoot you mom? And who normally shoots you?” she recalled. “ME: A photographer. But right now, the world is in a crazy place. Everything is an opportunity to do things differently! So what do you say? Do you want to be my photographer?”

Olive agreed to be her mother’s photographer, with the family staging the photoshoot at a beach in The Hamptons where they are self-isolating during the coronavirus crisis.

Drew also asked her daughter not to photograph her from below, adding in the caption: “OLIVE: Yes. And then you won’t look like you have a very big chin. ME: Oh no, I’m worried about looking like I have NO chin!”

Drew Barrymore is sampling every bright colour from the rainbow in her spring outfits.

The Blended actress is lightening up her life through clothing as the frost of winter melts in America, revealing a light pink suit by Zara, comprised of a double-breasted blazer and trousers, is her go-to ensemble at the moment.

“Move over dresses, it’s time to suit up for spring,” she gushes to New York Post column Alexa. “Lately, all I want to wear is a suit. I love this (pink) one (from Zara) because it takes a typical fall silhouette and lightens it up for spring.”

The Crocs ambassador is also sporting the brand’s Tropical Teal shoes as she’s out and about, revealing the statement footwear helps her pep up conversations.

“Wearing Crocs’ iconic Classic Clog is about more than making a comfort statement,” she explains. “It’s about being comfortable in all that you do and not being afraid to poke holes – no pun intended – in conversation.”

Another fun way she’s adding a little zest to her seasonal wardrobe is by slapping on a pair of SunglassLA rimless sunglasses.

“I own these in several colours,” Drew smiles. “I love them because you can change out your colour with your current mood. Current mood: Tangerine Dream,” the star reveals of the bright orange pair she currently can’t get enough of.

Finally, Drew is taking every fashionable precaution to keep the sun from damaging her skin while she enjoys the warmer weather.

“Admittedly, I’m a hat lady. This (brown woven) sun hat (by Coolibar) provides true UV protection while still looking super stylish,” the Santa Clarita Diet star says.
