Lori Loughlin's "Smiley" appearance in court criticized: "This is not a time of the red carpet"



Eyes on Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman were back for their second appearance in federal court Wednesday, first in Boston, for their roles in Operation Varsity Blues, a recording fraud. And while a date with Lady Justice is very different from a red carpet, a familiar terrain for the Hollywood stars, what the defendants wear still plays a big role.

"This is a serious court case," San Francisco attorney Debra F. Bogaards, who has advised countless clients and experts on lawsuits, collusion and arbitration through his law firm Bogaards Law, tells Yahoo Entertainment. "The alleged federal crime in this college allows scandal centers to deal with fraud that relates to moral weakness and character. It comes at a time when the country is starving for a leader of character, integrity and ethics. Therefore, the defendants should be dressed to make the weight of the charges serious and understandable.

Your arrivals

Did you do that? Huffman, who allegedly paid $ 15,000 for raising her older daughter's SAT scores, was the first to attend her hearing, which was essentially just to establish detention conditions, but it could be said that she was not attacked by armed agents she was pulled out of bed the last time she had her hair and make-up and contact lenses on. A Celtic cross, not a new purchase (we found photos of her wearing it or something similar in her Desperate Housewives days) a focal point of her look, which included a black suit with a shiny blouse. The subject star was surrounded by handlers holding one – not husband William H. Macy, but her brother.

The Fuller House star, who along with her husband Mossimo Giannulli is accused of paying $ 500,000 in bribes to allow her daughters to join the University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team is once again the outstanding one. The video showed that her arrival was very red carpet. She wore her brown trouser suit and smiled as the fans shouted her name (and one asked her to pay her tuition.)

The Commandments and Commandments of the Judiciary

Bogaards, who wrote about the importance of clothing in the courtroom Plaintiff magazine "Dressing Your Client for success in dismissal and litigation", talked to us about what she thought was right – and wrong.

"Loughlin is far too smiley and would like to greet her fans, but she gets carried away by her lawyers," notes Bogaards While her camel pants suit works, Bogaards advises her clients to bring Gray, Navy and Brown to court because making them look more honest – the light gray shirt underneath is "too casual for the severity of the federal court appearance," instead suggesting a white starched starched blouse with buttons to "convey a more rigid and formal message."

Hair is as important as a wardrobe – it should be neat and tidy. While Loughlin seemed to have a fresh blowout, a more textured style – a low ponytail, a bun, or a French braid – adds to a serious performance.

But in general Loughlin looks "just too sunny, light and airy". Bogaards thinks. "This is not a time of the red carpet. If you look at Loughlin smiling, I ask if she understands the gravity of the charges.

Folks on Twitter also questioned this:

Loughlin's smiley behavior continued in the courtroom, others noted. (For what it's worth, she happily greeted fans outside her hotel in Boston and signed autographs.)

While Huffman's black trouser suit provides a reasonably bleak look, Bogaards says, "a dark-cut suit with a starched white Blouse "do this as more honest and composed. "The blouse is wrong," she says, "she looks messy because it's a silk material. It should be right what tailor made cotton blouses do. "And like Loughlin, Huffman distracts untamed hair – even though her" very serious "expression was under scrutiny.

Meanwhile, Huffman's accessories – several necklaces, the hoop earrings and the hoop earrings and the huge bag – were all wrong. While the cross conveys "its good Christian character," Bogaards says, she recommended "using a more subtle, simple, simple gold cross to keep the jury or judges from paying attention." The hoops were too big and distracting – but not so much like the huge white bag.

“What could she possibly be carrying to court that she needs during the hearing?” Bogaards asks. “It’s not Let’s Make A Deal where she may be asked to search for a spoon or a hard boiled egg by Monty Hall. A small, black, non-designer purse would complete the tailored, conservative and serious-for-court look. The goal is for her to appear contrite, remorseful and shamed — that’s what the public wants and a proper neutral conservative look conveys.”

Bogaards’s approved wardrobe list for women is a suit or dress with a cardigan. Arms should always be covered. There should be no low-cut blouse or cleavage, large patterns, tight-fitting or short skirts, stilettos or open-toed shoes. All designer labels should be left at home — down to a person’s shoes — along with any flashy jewelry.

‘It’s not that we are shallow’

What someone wears to court is important because you don't want the judge or jury to be distracted by a piece of your wardrobe, explains Bogaards. You want a thought-out, completed look and you don't want a single thing about it to be off.

“That's why we are talking about their appearance,” Bogaards says. “It's not that we are shallow and that we believe that clothing makes you. But I want the jury to listen to what my client has to say on the stand and not prejudge them based on what they are wearing or be distracted by it.”

And Huffman and Loughlin are masters at showing off their perfectly polished looks on red carpets — after all, they’ve both been in showbiz since the 1970s and have stylists at the ready.
