Style Court's Judge Henry Roth: Hear Ye, Hear Ye: Designer Henry Roth Is Handing Down Fashionable Verdicts on the Style Network


Blotcher, Jay, The Advocate (The national gay & lesbian newsmagazine)


"It's about the impact of style on a person," says Henry Roth, "and whether they are guilty or not guilty of allowing fashion to be a positive effect on their lives."

Justice may be blind, but it certainly isn't fashion-challenged when Judge Henry Roth presides over Style Court, a new courtroom show airing on E! Entertainment's Style Network.

If Roth delivers a guilty verdict, defendants receive either a modest or elaborate makeover--as needed--that will remedy the fashion faux pas that brought them into court in the first place.

Certainly, this is the year for gay-engineered makeovers. But Roth promises more than a tough-love dressing-down. "When you're talking about style, you're talking about a person's emotions," said Roth, 43, a New York-based bridal gown designer.
