I think had she added a jacket and some pantyhose that would have been a perfectly appropriate dress for court, certainly it's flattering on her anyway, it just could have been tweaked a little here and there to make it look more professional and less 'clubby'.

Maybe a different hairstyle as well.

I personally don't think it's a appropriate dress for a court appearance. The lack of a bra makes it even less so, IMO . :o

That's funny because I thought, "Hey, at least she's wearing a bra!"

I believe that she is. I've seen some closer up pics and it looks like she's wearing a white bra.

Then the poor girl needs to be properly fitted.

Yes. That smushed look is unfortunate.

It is relatively tame for Lindsay.

Agreed. As MrsJWine puts it, it's klassy, but considering that last time she showed up with a curse word on her manicure, well, it could be a lot worse. However, I'm guessing it didn't impress the judge at all.

Five things observe with care,

I agree.  I think she looks very cute, but yeah, it's probably a little short for court.  But at least everything is covered.
It's not obscene. Too tight and clingy to be totally flattering, but that's her problem, not mine.

But, if clothes are statements (and certainly movie people should know that), it doesn't say, "I am take my situation seriously and am prepared to work to rehabilate myself, physically, mentally, and professionally, if the court is kind enough to give me that option." Instead, it says, "Can we move this hearing along, because there's a club seat waiting for my rear on it."

Which is probably not the best message to send, all things considered here. I'm surprised her lawyers can't persuade her to wear something that says, "I'm clean, I'm sober and I'm serious".
"The sky's the limit. Your sky. Your limit. Now, let's dance!"

She should've been ticketed by the fashion police.  That's one of the most unflattering dresses & it's paired with a necklace that looks like it's a lanyard & it's all tucked in.  Her face is pale & her legs are orange...  Not something I'd wear to court (or anywhere else), but it does cover everything.

edited cuz I got ticketed by the spelling police...

I couldn't disagree more! I think the dress is very flattering, it makes her look curvy in all the right places, and I think it's very pretty. As for the pale face/orange legs, I think that might be a lighting thing...if you look at the first picture, her face and legs are pretty much the same colour :) .

I agree.  I think she looks fantastic, the best she's looked in a while.  Unfortunately, though very cute, the dress is inappropriate for a court appearance.  I don't think that makes it rude, though.

I think casually putting the hair up and the lanyard around her neck totally ruin the whole look.  I'm not fond of the dress on her, but if you're going to wear something like that, do your hair & accessorize properly...

I've seen worse.  Remember when MJ came to court in his PJs?  
I like the dress, but it's not something I'd wear to court.  Court is one of those places where if you want to be taken seriously, conservative dress is essential.

That said, I think what offends me more is not LL's dress, but the way the media is obessing about it.  Egypt is falling apart and all I'm hearing about is LL's dress.

I don't think it's flattering at all.  Too tight.  All I notice is b00bs which is not a good idea for an environment where you want to be taken seriously.

I think the dress looks nice, but not for court. I was thinking, 'Dang, if I wore that dress I'd look like a bowl of mashed potatoes!' :D

Girl, me too! I need some support (AKA: camouflage)!

Edited to remove the "s" from girls. I just meant Kittybass, but was clearly thinking about b00bs.

Just because someone is offended that does not mean they are in the right.

Very rude and inappropriate for court IMO.

She needed to be dressed much more conservatively, then again I don't think she owns anything that resembles neat and conservative for a courtroom appearance.

For some reason, this (entirely true) piece of advice struck me as the funniest darn thing I've heard in a long time.

The look she was sporting last time was also just as short, showed cleavage, was tighter than this one, and had studs on the jacket.

So this one is a little closer to the mark, while still off. Also, she combed her hair. Bonus points for combing hair before court and washing off last night's makeup.

As much as I am not a fan of her, I think she looks great.

LOL. Bonus points for not combining 'walk of shame' with court appearance? With LL, we aim low :D

All I saw was b00bs too. I saw on the net the designer of the dress said the dress has since sold out.
Someday, somehow, somewhere.....

Can't really see (my screen is sort of toasted)- is she wearing pantyhose? Often, for short dresses with long sleeves and no cleavage, that's what makes the difference between appropriate and inappropriate. (Then again, I admit, I'm not a fan of wearing black heels that aren't open-toe with no pantyhose). I think the combination of hair+necklace + sunglasses (for the love of kittens, I ope she won't keep them on indoors!) makes it look a bit trashy. If she had worn the same dress with a tasteful silver necklace, her hair down and tidy or in a tame-looking simple bun and maybe a bolero or suit jacket- the effect would have been deffinitely different.
I know someone who's a graduate student at my faculty- she wears that sort of dresses most of the time (she's got really beautiful legs!), including when she presented research results in an important conference- and I always thought it looks good on her. Not sure how much you can compare the court dress code with academic conferences dress code..
