Icelandic fashion brand E-label claims that Beyonce has ripped off one of its legging designs for her new Dereon collection, the Daily Mail reports.

E-label co-owner Helba Hallgrimsdottir told the Mail that the singer and designer bought a pair of her leggings in London's Topshop last November. When she saw Beyonce's leggings for Dereon, Hallgrimsdottir "didn't twig straight away that this was her own label: I just thought she was wearing our leggings. It is practically just copy-paste."

E-label hasn't decided whether to pursue legal action. The design isn't copyrighted.
