Bill Cosby's recent court appearance where he looked like a frail old man with a cane, wearing a grandpa jumper, isn't the first time a celebrity has manipulated their image for the court.
Supported as he walked in by his two attorneys, Cosby's appearance has been labelled a masterclass in manipulation.
But he's not the first, and nor will he be the last to take this approach in court.
Here are five other celebrities whose court appearance told a different story:
The former tabloid editor turned up for her appearance during the Leveson inquiry looking as innocent as ever.
Her white Peter Pan collar was seen as an attempt to mend her public reputation after previously having been seen predominantly in work suits.
In a similar style to Brooks, Winona Ryder appeared as a more doe-eyed version of herself, wearing a black-collared coat and headband during her court appearance for shop lifting.
Her appearance didn't sway the jury, however, and she was found guilty of grand theft and vandalism for stealing goods worth US$5500 from an exclusive store in Beverly Hills.
The celebrity chef left her trademark curvaceous dresses at home as she appeared in court during the trial of her former assistants.
Wearing a long black coat, black knee-high boots, with a flash of white coming from the collar of her shirt, Lawson looked like she understood the importance of appearance.
Usually seen on the cricket pitch or out and about with his curly mop of hair hanging around his ears, Chris Cairns appeared suited and booted as he appeared in London's Southward Court on trial for perjury.
With his hair cropped short, impeccably dressed in suits with a bag slung over his shoulder, Cairns maintained his well-dressed appearance for the entire duration of the lengthy trial.
Troubled singer Chris Brown appeared every bit the sorry man when he appeared on assault charges in 2009.
Dressed in a grey suit and tie with a white pocket square, it was a far cry from the images usually seen splashed through the media.
