Her outfit had me screaming at the monitor today.  "You are going to a court appearance, not a fashion show!"

Please someone take her out and buy her a professional looking suit.

Business professional is about *not* drawing too much attention to onesself.  It's about letting the actions speak, not the wardrobe. This is in direct contrast to fashion. (not that you cant be fashionable to, but your overriding goal when dressing professionally is to draw attentino to your *work* - not your figure) 

She *so* did not accomplish that.

Am I reading too much into it to think that she feels her only value is having a nice looking body? Why on earth would she feel the need to emphasize it, even when it's not appropriate?

Also? I hate the whole 'nude is the new black' thing.

I don't know that she feels she has much value at all, considering how she treats herself.  I hope she turns it around, because she really is a talented actress.

Honestly, I think she *needs* to be sent to jail for her own good. Getting away from the entourage and facing some real life (and discovering you can cope with it) has saved some celebrities.

I haven't found her to be all that believable in any role.

I was pretty much ok with her first outfit and the second could have been perfectly appropriate if she had covered that huge cleavage (like: wear something under that blouse or at least a scarf or something) but I strongly dislike the 3rd one. I mean- latex-seriously?

It's leather. Apparently leather dresses are a trend right now. What was she thinking?!

I'm guessing she wants to look sexy. I'm also guessing it hasn't dawned on her that sexy can be a drawback for the courtroom.

That's what I don't get - doesn't she have a stylist, someone who can say, "No, Lindsay, this nice navy suit and crisp white blouse is going to work much better for court"?

LOL! That's exactly what I said at the top of this page in the thread.  ;)

Her mother is obviously not helping, but I'd like to think that even her lawyer could step up and say, "Wear a suit. Wear a shirt under the jacket. No leather. No crazy colors. No cleavage."

I really wonder why her lawyer isn't saying more. This is not a lawyer who's just in it for the money imo because she already quit once, so she certainly doesn't seem to be afraid of losing this client. Also, the lawyer has easily a dozen other celebrity clients that have been in the news, so it's not like she's going to lose anything big if she tries to intervene with Lindsay's clothing choices.

That presupposes that she would listen to someone being reasonable, though.

No, she has a stylist that tells her, "This designer has paid you $XXX,XXX to wear this to court today!"

I heard on the radio that the white dress she wore to court sold out within two hours of her court appearance.  ::)

I have to say, I think it's not too bad for court. Certainly, for a celebrity who is undoubtedly getting paid to wear this stuff, it's quite muted. No semi-transparency like the white dress, which other than that and the lack of pantyhose was quite good. No massive cleavage like the shirt and trousers outfit (definitely not right for court). Regarding her bra, I think she may be naturally low-hung, so to speak.
