    Fashion court is now in session: Cosmopolitan market editor Karen Larrain sued DVF after a light fixture fell on her head during the designer's September 2005 runway show and allegedly, the case has yet to be settled. 

    Following the accident, which landed Larrain in the hospital with a concussion, von Furstenberg sent a nice note with flowers, but five years later, Larrain's lawyers are apparently still waiting for justice -- a.k.a., cash-money.  The jury's still out, however, because the DVF camp issued a statement that they were wholly unaware of the discrepancy and are planning to follow up with their insurers. We'll wait to see what the final verdict is, and in the meantime, we just hope everyone can just settle civilly.
