What to wear when you're hauled to court
by Cheow Sue-Ann & Benita Aw Yeong

It's your big day in front of the cameras.

You'll be facing the glare of thousands of flashes as everyone wants a glimpse of your face.

With all that attention, you will want to look your best.

But what if you're feeling shy, or just want to hide those dark eye circles and other blemishes?

Take a leaf from the books of our recent court-attendees and wear a smart pair of shades.

The fashion classic of the glitterati helps exude that air of mystery and keeps them guessing.

Whether you're looking to catch the media's eye or hide from it, there is a pair of glasses to help you make a different kind of statement to the press.

You can be funky in a studded or printed pair from Ksubi or go for timeless chic in Tom Ford, Marc by Marc Jacobs or Fendi.

All of these have a larger frame that will give you the kind of coverage you can control.

Or, if you're looking for a flashier Hollywood look, you could go with the gold-trimmed Versace or Dior.

If you're looking for a simpler, more subtle look, try the Costume National or Tom Ford pairs that are more discreet.

Here are some tips from image consultants Ms Joanne Lim and Ms Melissa Chor on how to dress with your public image in mind:

Long time ago when I was 18, I was caught for littering. I went to court and when I was called upon in front of the judge, a blue uniform guy told me rudely - take your hands out from your pocket and stand straight!
