Kim Kardashian
has called an end to her war with Old Navy -- settling up with the clothing brand for big bucks ... after it allegedly used a Kim K look-alike in its advertising last year.

Kim's lawsuit was dismissed today in L.A. -- and sources close to Old Navy tell TMZ, the company agreed to pay Kim an undisclosed sum based on her look-alike claims. We're told both sides are pleased with the settlement, though the exact terms of the deal are undisclosed.

TMZ broke the story ... Kim sued Old Navy last July for MILLIONS, claiming it intentionally used a look-alike in an effort to dupe the public into thinking Kim was affiliated with the brand.

She kinda had a point too ... just take a look at this screengrab from the advertising in question.

Kim is jealous that this lovely "lady" is talented. She's making Old Navy pay for her jealousy. The Kardasians are s***bait.

Look alike? Perhaps.

But then the look alike had to act, memorize a script and be very professional.

The only time lardass did anything scripted is when she gave some rap guy some skull.

Greed is an ugly thing, but let's face it she loves the hate, she refuses to care, she is pretty much doomed cause money really cannot save you in the long run...just make you disliked and disrespected.

Kim Kardashians greed just made an innocent girl unemployable. Honestly, I think Kim's biggest problem with this model was that at the time of this ads release this model was dating Reggie Bush.

Actually the Look-A-Like is younger and looks much better than Kim. So she should sue Kim for showing how she will look when she is much older. Ugly, and whorish.

Anybody up for starting a boycott KMZ?...since it must be owned by the Krapdashian family..or maybe Harvey is being blackmailed by them?...it's time to stop the greedy family.

I hate to say it but she DID have a valid case. If this is the commercial that ran during the SuperBowl, I thought the girl WAS Kim K until I read later that week that it was a lookalike. However, I'll admit that I only had a passing familiarity with her appearance. The problem comes with how the ad was portrayed. While Kim doesn't own her physical "look" (only the rights to visual 2D representations of her actual face and not someone who merely resembles her) and anyone can copy it, it must be obvious to the viewer that the person in the ad is a lookalike via a clear disclaimer. As I recall, the ad featured no such disclaimer. Given that Old Navy's ads habitually (and this is important) feature actual celebrities, it's easy to understand why the average viewer might have been confused and led to believe the lookalike model was the real Kim. I was certainly fooled and I'm definitely NOT a fan.
