Amber Heard suffered a major loss when Johnny Depp was able to prove in court that she acted in actual malice against him when publishing an op-ed piece. However, followers of the continuing Amber Heard and Johnny Depp issue have noticed a striking resemblance between Heard’s legal attires.
Amber seems to have donned the same black “funeral dress” on the day she filed a restraining order against her ex in 2016, as well as in 2020 when she appeared in court in the United Kingdom against him, and then again on Wednesday when the defamation trial judgment was handed down.
Depp was granted compensatory damages of $10 million and punitive damages of $5 million by the jury. Punitive damages in Virginia must be limited to $350,000, which means Depp will only collect a total of $10.35 million. Heard received $2 million in compensatory damages with no punitive damages awarded.
Heard wore an all-black attire that day, but the dress looked eerily identical. Heard shared two photos of herself in the same outfit on Instagram in March 2021, one from 2016 during her divorce and the other from 2020 exiting a UK courthouse.
Amber wrote in the caption of the post:
“One dress, four years apart. Sometimes it’s important to wear the same thing twice.”
So it’s no surprise that when Twitter users saw the infamous outfit again, they criticized Heard’s fashion choices. “Sometimes it’s important to wear the same dress three times. The day you ruined his life, the day you agreed to lie in the court of law, the day you lost,” one Twitter user wrote.
One chimed in:
“This manipulative show pony planned to use the verdict as a PR stunt when she put on her ‘amish-dress; for the 3 time All the PR in the world can’t fix her reputation now. We’ve all heard the audiotapes, they show the real Amber Heard,”
“Not @realamberheard trying to do something by wearing the same ugly funeral dress? Ma’am, just burn it,” trolled another Twitter user. “LOVE that Amber Heard wore the same black dress that she wore for the restraining order, the UK trial, and now the US won where she lost big time. I’m sure she was trying for some sort of ‘poetic justice’ moment summed up by a dress. But she lost & that was a total flop haha,” tweeter another.
Depp sued the Sun in 2020 after the tabloid called him a “wife beater” in a 2018 article, but the judge ruled in the tabloid’s favor in November 2020, stating Heard’s claims were “substantially true.” It was, however, a different tale this time.
Heard was convicted guilty of defamation on three counts, whereas Depp was only held liable on one count. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates.
