As you may have heard, Naomi Campbell spent her morning testifying at former Liberian president Charles Taylor’s war crime trial. She may not know what Liberia is or what diamonds look like unless they are “shiny in a box,” but she does know how to dress for a courtroom. The supermodel begrudgingly delivered her testimony in a sweet, cream-colored Alaia number with a sheer cardigan.
We think she stayed appropriately conservative, but the outfit reminded us of when Winona Ryder caught flack for wearing a really cute see-through Marc Jacobs dress back in 2002 when she was on trial for shoplifting. It’s interesting to see what celebrities (or their stylists?) put together when they know they’ll be judged not only on their poor decisions, but their outfits as well. Perhaps real judges aren’t paying much attention to whether a potential criminal is wearing Fendi or Moschino, but we definitely are. So, click through for our favorite courtoom fashion moments.
