Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Your Verdict, Please


A question that doesn’t often present itself to your everyday, working supermodel: what to wear to a war crimes trial at the Hague? But that’s one that Naomi Campbell had to wrestle with: The supe testified this morning at the trial of former Liberian president Charles Taylor at the Hague. (Taylor allegedly gifted Campbell some raw diamonds—she described them as dirty pebbles—during a stay at Nelson Mandela’s South Africa home. Slumber parties of the rich and famous!) For her court appearance, Naomi chose a demure, elegant cream-colored cardigan and dress by Azzedine Alaïa, with a heavy, sixties-inspired beehive and bangs and very little makeup. (And suffice it to say, no diamonds.) We’d call it courtroom classy, but we’ll let this case be decided by a jury of our readers. What say you—yea, nay, or eh?

    way to completely minimize the serious issue she is facing here.

    i know fashion is not supposed to be steeped in reality and yes, being vapid is part of it all – but this is rather offensive, no?

    how many people have died in liberia because of a few “dirty pebbles”?
