Rihanna is no stranger to big, bold fashion, but the 21-year-old pop star took it down several notches for her court appearance in Los Angeles yesterday (June 22).

The singer looked positively poised and polished despite attending a hearing to determine if ex-boyfriend Chris Brown should stand trial and face jail time for allegedly attacking her.

She opted for a chic, sophisticated and super stylish ensemble: A classic black dress, Proenza Schouler black python PS1 bag, vintage Van Cleef & Arpels yellow gold and diamond bracelet watch and vintage Buccelatti 18 karat yellow gold, ruby and diamond earrings, along with pearls on her neck. (The watch runs $8,500 and the earrings, $13,000; available at Platt Boutique Jewelry.)

According to the mercurynews.com, Brown pleaded guilty to assault charges and entered a plea bargain. The judge accepted his plea and Brown was sentenced five years of probation and six months of hard labor.

He must also stay 50 yards away from Rihanna, except at industry events, where the distance was shortened to 10 yards.

Rihanna kept it sophisticated for the court appearance, but she's no stranger to wilder styles, and we love it. Check out some of her recent looks below.
