Miss Universe Olivia Culpo has had a lawsuit filed against her for allegedly violating rules at the Taj Mahal on Oct. 6.

Local authorities are investigating whether Culpo violated rules at the famed landmark by advertising a brand of footwear during a photo shoot, reported NDTV

After someone traveling with her took two sandals out of a bag, Culpo put one on her foot and held the other in her hand, while a cameraman took pictures with the Taj Mahal in the background.

Any kind of commercial activity is prohibited in and around “archaeologically protected monuments,” according to India’s Supreme Court.
