Yesterday we got our first look at a court-ready Blac Chyna. Optics are a very important puzzle piece in trying to garner sympathy in the eyes of the court, and aesthetics, specifically, can make or break a case. The subject is so critical that it has inspired articles aplenty, including this Wall Street Journal piece, which notes that depending on the case matter, it could be advantageous to consider the subject at hand and how one's outward appearance could support or detract from his or her argument. The article uses the following as examples: "A woman who is claiming poverty in a financial hearing might undermine her case if she's wearing highly expensive clothing," and "sloppy dress at trial might seem to add to the case against a father accused of neglectful child-rearing." Fair enough.
In light of Chyna's white pantsuit moment yesterday and the multitude of memes that centered around the implications of different wigs, we present to you 10 other celebrity courtroom looks from high-profile cases. You'll find that Diddy and Lil Kim are on this list multiple times, but their dapper suits and outrageous accessories, respectively, prove them worthy of multiple spots.
