whitneyport_jimmychooforh&mevent.jpgNo... not Whit! Legal proceedings have been taken out against Whitney Port by a designer who claims that she designed Port's Whitney Eve fashion line and not the reality TV star.

In a lawsuit filed in Las Angeles last Friday, Adrienne Baravetto says that she met with Whitney and her father in 2008 to discuss creating a line for women called Eve & A. She is seeking $90,000 in back pay along with punitive and statutory damages.

"The actual designs were virtually all done by Baravetto, much of which was inspired by her own vintage clothing collection," the lawsuit says.

In response, Whitney's lawyers have called the suit "baseless and without merit." Her attorney Michael A. Taitelman added: "Baravetto worked for Whitney Eve for a short period of time ending in early 2008. For more than two years, she has been silent. For reasons that we will uncover she has decided to make these unsubstantiated allegations at this time."

Interesting time with the second season of The City about to premiere in the U.S. on April 27. I hope this isn't a publicity stunt.
