Supermodel Court Appearance by Videolink
Sadly, we don't all live in a multi-million listed country farmhouse. Top designers to call on as friends. With a three grand jacket happily on hand.
Then neither are we likely to be called as witness for a $100m defamation trial.
I sense we may each have somewhere dear currently enrapt devouring the ongoing Depp v Heard super-case.
The press clamour around brief testimony from supermodel Kate Moss blanketed the mainstream.

The 'expert' cited, 'tv personality' Robert Verdi.
