No surprise that former model Christie Brinkley tops this list. Her perfectly fitting camel colored pencil skirt, crisp, fitted but not-too-fitted white blouse, and wide, braided leather belt was so perfectly put together one would think she was styled just for the event (which, she very well may have been). Sad day for Christie though as that court date was necessitated by a very, messy divorce trial from Peter Cook. Cheating on Christie Brinkley, really?
Is that a high powered LA lawyer walking up the courthouse steps? Nope. It’s Jay-Z looking so sharp and appropriate in his dark suit, starched white shirt and perfectly notched tie as he headed into the U.S. District Court to give testimony in a case involving he and producer Timbaland using an Egyptian song, without prior permission, in one of their tracks.
I still can’t stop talking about Rihanna and the entire style she rocked when she appeared in a DC courtroom in connection with the criminal assault case with Chris Brown. From her neatly styled hair, to her pearls, to perhaps the most perfect little black dress, Rihanna looked the picture of class and calm. With all the media attention and the emotional nature of the case, there’s no doubt Rihanna’s look helped her get through that day—a day that certainly wasn’t an easy one. And, as DC is one of my legal hometowns that doesn’t get too many celebs in its’ halls, I think it makes me like the look even more.
Every time Naomi Campbell goes to court (and that was quite often for a while) she looks even better than the last. I can’t decide which was my favorite look: the black dress, black blazer, black hose and shoes, topped off with black sunglasses and THE best bob or the classic pinstripe suit and white blouse or the demure cream cardigan and knit dress she wore to the Liberian blood diamond trial?
Poor Jude Law. Yes, celebrities are public figures and therefore legally have lower expectations of privacy but News of the World hacking his phone? Not okay. Seems as if Jude took it all in stride as he dashed into court looking very classy in a dark gray wool suit, white shirt, and a simple knit black tie with white dots. The case ultimately settled though for Jude it was never about the money. In fact, in a post settlement statement Jude said the following: “I have now achieved everything I wanted from this litigation. The News of the World has finally made admissions about the extent of their illegal activity and they have acknowledged that what they did was wrong. They have also finally admitted that what they did to me personally amounted to harassment and that it should never have happened… For me this case was never about money. It was about standing up for myself and find out what had happened… what News Group did was an abuse of its freedoms. They have overstepped the mark for many years.” Well said, Jude. Case closed.
