They don't call her the "Notorious RBG" for nothin! Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is thought of as an icon and an enigma on and off the bench, and the signature collars she dons with her judicial black robes set her apart from the other justices. But do her collars have meanings? Is RBG trying to send the world messages by which neckpiece she chooses at which time?
Town & Country says yes, or at least they suppose so. And Justice Ginsburg doesn't just jazz things up with the occasional lace or pearls; she has a whole wardrobe of stylish neckwear. It is thought that RBG has attached meaning to each collar, and T&C put together a guide to deciphering the meaning of each neckpiece.
Justice Ginsburg wore a new necklace over her robes for her first portrait with the controversial newest appointee, Brett Kavanaugh. It is made of gold fanned feathers by Stella & Dot, priced at $198, and the style is called Pegasus. T&C suggests that this one means "Not a fan of him," meaning Kavanaugh.
"For those of us inclined to read the hidden messages, it was tempting to conclude that the 83-year-old justice was signaling her toughness—and her prickly disapproval."
