Winona Celebrity Pays Off

Friday, February 7th, 2003

Winona Ryder apparently will appear in Marc Jacobs’ spring advertising campaign, reprising her role as criminal clothes horse from last fall’s trial. You go, girl.

Rundle: Winona Was a Walking Pharmacy at the Time of Her Arrest

Wednesday, December 4th, 2002

Deputy D.A. Ann Rundle has filed the prosecution’s brief in advance of Friday’s sentencing of Winona Ryder. Rundle calls for community service, a $26,000 fine, and drug counseling, which, except for that intervening trial and conviction part, is pretty much what I was predicting back in the day. The most interesting part of the brief […]

Winona Day X: Maroon and a Verdict

Wednesday, November 6th, 2002

Winona’s in dark maroon today, with some odd-looking shoes; see photos on the wiki’s WinonaRyderOnTrial page. We’ve also got a verdict, reportedly, to be announced by late morning. Update: Guilty on the grand theft and vandalism charges; not guilty on burglary. Sentencing set for December 6.

Winona Day IX: Low-Key

Tuesday, November 5th, 2002

We’re back to the dark jacket look (or perhaps it’s a dark dress that just looks like a jacket) at the Winona Ryder trial. See the wiki’s WinonaRyderOnTrial page for the latest images and commentary. Today is jury-deliberation day, with the possibility of a verdict before the day is over. My prediction: a guilty verdict, […]

Winona Day VIII: White Again, Hooray!

Monday, November 4th, 2002

Winona returns to an outfit reminiscent of the white-dress stunner of October 16. Photos and commentary in the wiki’s WinonaRyderOnTrial page. Update: The defense rests, with no calling of Winona to testify on her own behalf. The prosecution has given its closing statement; the defense’s closing statement is expected later today. Later: Some interesting bits […]

The Gray Lady Does Winona

Saturday, November 2nd, 2002

Just when you thought it was safe, with the trial on hold for the weekend, here comes even more Winona coverage. Specifically, check out this nice article from the New York Times: For the Ryder Trial, a Hollywood Script. It gives a good summary of where things stand currently, along with some speculation about why […]

Winona Day VII: Same Look, Different Day

Friday, November 1st, 2002

Today’s look from Winona (see the bottom of the wiki’s WinonaRyderOnTrial page) is nearly indistinguishable from yesterday’s, at least based on the two photos that have come out so far. It’s a different dark coat over the top, and looks like a dark sweater, rather than a dark jacket, in the middle layer, but the […]

Winona Day VI: Dressing Down

Thursday, October 31st, 2002

Today’s outfit: Jeans, a long black coat, a dark jacket underneath, a white blouse, and a tourquoise pendant. Photos (and later, once I get a chance, commentary) available in the wiki’s WinonaRyderOnTrial page.

Winona Day V: Whoa

Wednesday, October 30th, 2002

Today’s outfit is a fairly intense black dress with jaunty pastel accents. My first reaction was “femme fatale,” but Madison (who, like Lucy, has actually been paying attention to clothes significantly longer than the last few days during which I’ve been paying attention to them) responded, “Actually, I think that’s the ‘I’m a harmless little […]

Winona Day IV: Green and Frumpy

Tuesday, October 29th, 2002

Things took a turn for the worse in the second full day of the Winona Ryder trial, as the actress arrived in a really yucky-looking green thing (dress? coat? hard to tell, or care, honestly). Photo coverage is pretty sparse so far (for which I guess we should actually be grateful), though it does look […]

Day III: Winona in Black

Monday, October 28th, 2002

Day III of the Winona Ryder trial opened with a bang, as the defendant arrived in a dramatic black dress (I think; these through-the-glass shots they’re limiting the paparazzi to leave something to be desired). The see-through factor was unfortunate; she may have received inadequate legal advice on the effect of high-powered flash photography in […]

Winona, Day II

Saturday, October 26th, 2002

The jury for Winona Ryder’s shoplifting trial was sworn in yesterday. Confirming the adage that you can’t throw a rock in L.A. without hitting a film producer, the Beverly Hills jury will include Peter Guber, former chairman of Sony Entertainment Pictures. The 8-woman, 4-man jury also includes a woman who is a legal secretary with […]

Winona Trial Begins Today

Thursday, October 24th, 2002

It’s jury-selection day in the Winona Ryder trial, though I haven’t been able to find out what she’s wearing yet. With the F.B.I. reporting that they believe they have the D.C. sniper in custody, though, hopefully we’ll be able to get more detail soon. (I did come across this story about Christina Aguilera piercing her […]

Winona Ordered to Appear in Court Today

Wednesday, October 16th, 2002

Judge Elden Fox has ordered Winona Ryder to appear in court today, after an unspecified “unusual circumstance” prevented the actress from showing up yesterday, thereby delaying her trial yet again. Among the things we can look forward to today are the official dismissal of the drug-possession charges, and the replacement of the stock photos from […]

Prosecutor Asks That Winona Drug Charges Be Dropped

Thursday, October 10th, 2002

from the all-winona,-all-the-time dept. Winona Ryder got some good news yesterday, when prosecutors in her shoplifting-cum-painkiller-possession trial requested that drug-possession charges be dropped. Seems a witness supplied an affidavit that showed Winona actually had a prescription, or thought it was okay for her to possess the drugs, or something. So, does this mean the prosecutors […]

Winona Plea Deal Dead; Trial Date Set

Thursday, September 19th, 2002

from the wrong-again,-dammit dept. Despite breathless predictions to the contrary from certain tabloids that shall remain nameless, there will be no plea bargain in Winona Ryder’s shoplifting case. The trial is set to commence October 7. Man, what a fall season we’ve got lined up: new albums from Peter Gabriel and U2, the extended-edition FOTR […]

Winona in Plea Negotiations?

Friday, August 23rd, 2002

from the court-ordered-rehab,-here-we-come dept. So, supposedly Winona Ryder’s lawyers are in meetings with prosecutors, leading to speculation that she may be in the process of working out a plea bargain for her drug-possession-cum-shoplifting thing. I suppose I should have expected that, but I confess to being a little disappointed that there won’t be more celebrity […]

Winona Pleads ‘Not Guilty’

Sunday, June 16th, 2002

from the the-wheels-of-justice-grind-on dept. So, Winona Ryder had her delayed-due-to-elbow-breakage hearing, and pled (pleaded? pleadified?) not guilty to shoplifting charges. Stay tuned for more.

Winona Back in Court

Friday, June 7th, 2002

from the when-celebrities-go-bad,-part-II dept. Winona Ryder’s preliminary hearing resumed yesterday, with five witnesses testifying as to her behavior during her alleged shoplifting spree. The defense was pretty low-key, limiting itself to some sarcastic questions of store security guards (“And do you get a lot of homeless people wearing three-quarter-length cashmere coats?”), and then alleging almost […]

Winona Injures Arm. Or Maybe Not.

Tuesday, June 4th, 2002

from the same-story,-different-celebrity dept. Actress Winona Ryder, who appeared at a preliminary hearing yesterday in connection with charges she had shoplifted and possessed painkillers without a prescription, requested, and was granted, a delay after she said that her arm had been injured while she was pushing her way through the throng of reporters surrounding the […]
