Celebs going courtroom chic trend (bad girls like Paris Hilton
suddenly looking uber-conservative but utterly trendy for their dates in court)
is so hot right now
that the little black Moschino tie-neck dress worn by Nicole Richie during her DUI court date, has sold out of Net-A-Porter!
These chic stars, known for their eye-catching prints and
cool fabrics have gone quite
demure. Paris Hilton wore a tailored
gray blazer over a vest, a white shirt, and slim pants. Never shying away from a PR moment, the
clothes were believed to be from Hilton’s own line.
Perhaps the debutantes were taking their cues from Naomi
Campbell and Winona Ryder who showed up equally refined during their respective court dates.
During one of Naomi Campbell’s many court hearings for losing her cool, she dressed up a prim Rachel Roy dress with a sophisticated Louis Vuitton jacket.
Winona showed off Marc Jacobs-inspired suit looks while on trial for shoplifting in 2002, but it wasn’t all MJ for her. She added a white Fendi bag to a black wool pea coat.
Lindsay Lohan has already had her day in court, but of course, but she was noticeably absent. If she had been there, it would have been the perfect opportunity
for her to dress in something fabulous. Did I hear someone say Jill Stuart? (Despite her recent troubles, Lohan is still spokeswoman for the mod woman’s label.)
