On Feb. 27, the Kings County Supreme Court closed out Black History Month with its annual Closing Ceremony Fashion Show Extravaganza, in which judges and court employees strutted down the catwalk in their finest fashions from the ’70s. Rob Abruzzese reports for Brooklyn Daily Eagle:

The theme for Black History Month in the Brooklyn Court system this year was “A History of Black Life and Culture,” but the fashion show had a 70s flair to it, with “the Supreme Court Models” donning afro wigs and 70s attire.

“They told me that they would have a 70s piece, so I went into my wardrobe to find something from the 70s, and needless to say, nothing fit,” Hon. Deborah Dowling joked. “My headband hurt. I tried to put it on — that hurt — I had some earrings, so I put those on, and those hurt too. Has everything gained weight since the 70s?”
