Lohan's court dress scandal

Lindsay Lohan's court outfit continues to make waves after her Wednesday court appearance. Was it hot or totally inappropriate?

Lohan's court dress scandal

Did Lindsay Lohan think she was going to court for a Basic Instinct 2 audition?

That's the first thing we thought of when we saw the actress arrived for her arraignment Wednesday wearing a $575 Kimberly Ovitz dress and $320 black Chanel 5182 sunglasses.

The dress – though gorgeous – is more appropriate for a club than court. Of course, Lohan wanted to make a splash and take away from her serious charges at hand.

But will it?

Image consultants are known to advise high-profile defendants on appropriate outfits for court. We highly doubt a tight mini-dress is on their list of acceptable courtroom wear. And while we doubt her sentence will reflect her clothing choice, it will show the judge – and jurors, if it goes to trial – how serious she is about it.

It's not the first time Lohan has shown up to a court appearance wearing something questionable. She caused a huge controversy in 2010 when she arrived at one of her probation hearings with an expletive painted onto on of her manicured fingernails.

We hope that the truth will come out in Lohan's case -- however, we'll be paying closer attention to what she's wearing. Hey, we love fashion!
