The ongoing defamation trial between Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard has sent shockwaves through the internet. The toxic relationship began in 2012, and the couple eventually split in 2017 after only 15 months of marriage.
OK! previously reported Depp filed his $50 million defamation suit after Heard wrote an op-ed in 2018 depicting him as an abuser, which he has vehemently denied. With ongoing allegations of physical, sexual, emotional and substance abuse lodged against the actor and similar claims of abuse targeted at Heard, the trial continues to make headlines. The case is not only sparking conversation but also challenging many gender ideas surrounding domestic violence.
Since the trial began five weeks ago, both paparazzi and fans have waited outside to see the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory actor and Heard trial in person. As the world watches the triggering court case unfold, many social media users have been paying attention to both actors' choices in clothing. Both Depp and Heard have been seen wearing suits and more conservative outfits than the public is used to.
Some of their wardrobe choices have paralleled. Depp wore a Dior tie that included an embroidered bee, and Heard later wore a similar style by Gucci. The fashion choices made have been woven into the trial commentary over the past few weeks, as the decision to wear certain styles of clothing seems to be intentional.

Heard's style has had the most noticeable change during the defamation trial. The Zombieland star has been seen sporting everything from head-to-toe pantsuits to tweed jackets, all of which has kept her neckline covered, while wearing minimal makeup. The courtroom style has been analyzed by both social media commenters and professionals. Jury expert Dr. Jill Huntley Taylor told Insider that the actress' more masculine choice of clothing gives off the impression to jurors that she is powerful.
On the other hand, Depp has chosen to keep elements of his personal style for his courtroom appearance. The actor, who has kept his grown out hair down and in a ponytail over the course of the past few weeks, has been seen wearing his notorious glasses and several rings, which have become synonymous with him.
Despite keeping some things the same, fashion experts believe his courtroom color palette holds more significance. Fashion psychologist Dr. Dawnn Karen told Insider that the decision to wear a white tie during opening statements had a level of symbolism, given that white is associated with innocence, which Depp is hoping to prove.
