Amber Heard’s courtroom attire has come under scrutiny throughout her ongoing legal battle with Johnny Depp, and now trial viewers are watching what attorney Camille Vasquez wore in court.
Pirates of the Caribbean The actor is represented by attorney Camille Vasquez who has become a viral sensation in recent days for his performance in the multi-million dollar libel lawsuit.
Depp, 58, is suing his ex-wife Heard for $50 million over an op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post in 2018, titled “I spoke out against sexual violence – and faced the wrath of our culture. This must change.”
Depp claims it hurt his career, costing him millions of dollars in income. Although Heard did not name Depp in the article, her attorneys say it was clearly him, and she is counter-suing $100 million in damages in the meantime.
The lawsuit has been ongoing for several weeks now in Fairfax, Va., with both sides reporting serious allegations of abuse against the other, all of which have been denied.
This legal battle has unfolded on social media and watched by millions in an unprecedented way, and now a TikTok video evaluating Heard and Vasquez’s courtroom outfits has gone viral.
Shadé Zahra, who describes herself as a former lawyer and psychologist, made a video analyzing the costumes the two women chose to wear in the courtroom.
“Two days ago Johnny, Depp’s attorney showed up in court all white, an interesting and uncommon choice,” Zahra began in the video which garnered 3.2 million views on TikTok at the time. of the editorial staff.
“I wanted to comment on some of the psychology that I noticed in action,” she said.
Speaking about Vasquez and her choice of a white suit, Zahra explained: “From my point of view. Vasquez showing up in all white was a very smart decision to reflect innocence and then she’s on the right side of the law. .”
She said studies consistently show that the color of a person’s clothing can influence their perceived trustworthiness and credibility.
Moving on to Heard, Zahra showed clips of the actress dressed in blue, gray and black respectively.
“Blue is generally associated with wealth and security, gray with strength and success, and black with power and dominance,” adding that white is generally associated with “innocence and purity.”
She added, “Interestingly, some have commented that Heard’s outfit choices that symbolize control, power and dominance don’t really help her.
“So the lesson for all of us is that we need to be aware of how we present ourselves physically and how that might help or hinder how we want to present ourselves.”
For this lawsuit, Heard wore a series of men’s suits with some viewers speculating that she is copying her former husband’s clothing choices, with this theory even going viral last month.
Meanwhile, earlier this week, Heard’s gray suit was compared to the Austin Powers character Dr. Evil in another viral wardrobe moment from the courtroom.
