Naomi Campbell made the most of out of her five-day community service in March (for assaulting her maid) – dressing so stylishly that photographs of her coming and going from the N.Y.C Sanitation Department turned into a fashion spread in W.
Paris Hilton left her signature girly frocks at home for a buttoned-up vest and blazer while attending court on her DUI charges in May.
After 23 days behind bars and surrounded by swarms of paparazzi, the heiress took back her freedom in a Petro Zillia blazer and jeans from her very own denim line while exiting jail.
Never one to abide by typical dress codes, Britney Spears turned up for a child custody court date in October in faded blue jeans and a T-shirt.
Another day, another court appointment: Spears arrived with some old standbys – her well-worn Kenneth Cole boots and trusty Versace purse.
Nicole Richie turned up with equally dapper boyfriend Joel Madden in a seriously chic black Moschino dress and Christian Louboutin pumps to face drunken driving charges in Los Angeles in August.
Finally, Naomi Campbell celebrated her last day of community service by heading out for a gala evening in a glittering Dolce & Gabbana gown.
