Pictured is Phil Spector, showing up today for the first day of his murder trial jury selection not, as was widely expected, dressed in his trademark Dollytor style, but instead debuting a brand new look—the brainchild of Spector's savvy legal team, who strategized that it would be better for him to present himself as a harmless lesbian talk show host than a guy who would press a gun against a woman's face for objecting to his ashing on her dog.
