Sometimes it's good to be bad. In this week's edition of Bold Face, we feature three cherub face blondes who have each had their own sort of run in with the law... be it fact or fiction…

Actress Taylor Schilling spends a lot of time behind bars, ironic since in real life her father is is a former prosecutor. She currently stars as Piper Chapman in the Netflix original series, Orange is the New Black. The very popular show is the story of Chapman, a woman in her thirties who is sentenced to 15 months in prison after being convicted of a decade-old crime of transporting money for her drug-dealing girlfriend. The second season of Orange is the New Black is set to begin early this year. Here Schilling wears the Valentino V670S sunglasses from Marchon...



Not too long ago, American sweetheart Reese Witherspoon had a not so sweet run in with the Atlanta police after a "do-you-know-my-name" moment. She was arrested for disorderly conduct, while her husband Jim Toth was being arrested for DUI. Of course, the usually well-behaved actress apologized profusely after the incident. More recently, she was photographed out and about in Los Angeles with her daughter being much more law abiding.. and stylish wearing the Tom Ford Campbell (FT198) sunglasses from Marcolin...


Jamie King, who also recently became a new mother in real life, stars as the very proper, would-never-get-caught-breaking-the-law, Lemon Breeland on the CW's Hart of Dixie. But in 2013 she also starred in The Pardon, the true story of Toni Jo Henry, a woman tried for murder in 1942 in Louisiana, when her husband is sent to prison and she embarks on an ill-fated plan to free him. Because of her beauty, Toni Jo instantly became a notorious celebrity, drawing the unparalleled media attention of two highly publicized and sensational murder trials.She holds the dubious honor of being the only woman ever executed in Louisiana's electric chair. King, however, is alive and well wearing the the Prada SPR 23O sunglasses from Luxottica.
