Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was recently honored by Glamour magazine, and on Monday, Ginsburg brought some glamour to the bench.
Those who attend Supreme Court oral arguments regularly already know that Ginsburg has a fondness for accessorizing – she has an array of white lace jabots that she likes to switch up from day to day to add some flair to her black robe. But on Monday, Ginsburg made a fashion statement with a new piece of bling around her neck.
The folks at the Washington Post’s Reliable Source column got the scoop on Ginsburg’s new bauble. It was a Banana Republic lace bib necklace that Ginsburg received in the gift bag at Glamour’s “Women of the Year” awards.
Perhaps Ginsburg was emboldened to make bolder fashion statements on the bench by her colleague Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who can usually be seen donning shiny dangling earrings and cuff bracelets while grilling attorneys in the courtroom. Lately Sotomayor also has been wearing a more tailored, slimmer fitting black robe during arguments instead of the traditional pleated tent-like style.
