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"?

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

She lives in a bubble.  A bubble where real people wear sexy dresses all the time.  She has no real concept of what "the little people" wear.  An attorney, or stylist saying "you need to wear this conservative suit to court" is like our attorney telling us we have to wear a wetsuit to court.

That, and the fact that the tabloids would savage her if she actually wore something appropriate.

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.
I usually wear pant suits, but I've seen many female attorneys not wearing hose with their skirt suits. On the rare occasions where I wear my skirt suit, I go without the hose. Of course, our skirts aren't quite as high as Lindsay's was... :P

But I, too, agree that it's not "bad" for court, especially compared to what I've seen in court.

Winona Ryder wore appropriate outfits, and I know she used a stylist. The media actually was very commending of her for it. Of course that was years ago when (as I get to sound like an old cummedgeon) things were a little bit more by the rules.

Don't they savage her anyway? If you can't win with those, then at least focus on impressing the judge.

I think you could come up with something that was both court-appropriate and an interesting design. It really shouldn't be either/or. You'd think that the people who are, it appears, paying her to wear their clothes might like the challenge of designing her something that could help keep her out of jail.

I suppose it's a bit like the modern architects Tom Wolfe described who could not, with a gun at their heads, produce a piece of non-ironic applied decoration. I guess Hollywood designers cannot, even at the risk of losing their walking billboard for some time, cannot design a piece of clothing to say something other than "Hey! You! Between the sheets NOW!"

Ah, just had the opportunity to see what LiLo wore to court today. A black bodysuit thing, scarf and pants. Definately a much better look for court, but I still can't help but wonder what she thinks as ok to wear in a professional situation. The pants she is wearing IMHO almost look like jeans!

Her attorneys were probably relieved that she was decently covered. They do look like jeans, though.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Looks more suitable for a nightclub rather than court.
It would have looked better it she'd worn black tights rather than going bare legged.

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...

Sorry, I know this thread is really old, but I just wanted to comment on the "lanyard necklace" thing. I think she's wearing a scapular. It sure looks like one to me, and it's in every picture. (well, the court outfit pix I've seen here, I really don't follow her too closely.)
