There are crimes against fashion. And stylish brushes with the law. 2011 had some stellar examples
Lindsay Lohan leaves court in navy polka dot dress.
The sometime actor and courtroom regular proves she is a fashionable felon without equal.
Imogen Thomas leaves court in a blue dress.
Superinjunction style: you can lose an appeal but simultaneously win style points (even if your dress isn't a real Roland Mouret)
Charlie Gilmour leaves prison.
The HMP-release buzzcut was an improvement on the whole Dickensian riot thing he had going on.
Tyler the Creator ? detained by LA police for disturbing the peace.
Foul mouth. Fabulous Vans.
Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife to the Gucci heir, refuses parole.
Was the real reason she shunned day release that she preferred prison to the idea of working? Or did she worry that her fabulous pre-jail wardrobe of fur and diamonds was outmoded? (It isn't. Ostentation is a classic.)
Jude Law as Dr Watson
The moustache, sideburns and knitted scarf. Gains an unlikely three ticks.
Sarah Lund in a jumper
Hacking lawyer Mark Lewis in his orange coat
Inspired by Burberry, purchased from Zara and raising solicitor chic to a whole new level
Wendi Deng in the pink jacket
Technically she was on the right side of the law here during foam-pie gate. The slap could not have been better wardrobed had the incident been styled by a professional.
Dolce and Gabbana
The design duo have been accused, acquitted and now face a fresh hearing for tax-evasion charges. Their alleged crimes haven't become crimes of fashion though. Their pasta earrings this year were brilliant.
John Galliano Guilty of racist and antisemitic abuse. Guilty too of wearing a silk cravat over a bare chest under oath
Hacking convict and purveyor of terribly cut suits.
Downton Abbey's Mr Bates
Arrested at the end of season two and firm evidence that that the first-world-war servant look was a fashion flatline.
Dominic West as Fred West
A fashion crime of the small screen and no mistake. West's West just about finished off that padded-gilet-over-knitwear thing that graphic designers have so relied upon for years
Carole Caplin leaving court
"On this occasion I left the power-dressing to Mr David Price QC. It worked, ask Paul Dacre." Caplin's comment still doesn't fully explain her choice of a fluffy-trimmed, cable-knit, off-the-shoulder sweater though
