Anna Sorokin Accessorized Her Custom Cream Suit Dress with a Sparkly, Monogrammed Ankle Monitor for Court

Sorokin co-designed her look with Shao New York and turned the sidewalk into her own catwalk ahead of her court appearance in New York City on Thursday


Anna Sorokin won't let an ankle monitor ruin a perfectly good fashion moment. In fact, she'll take it as an opportunity to elevate it even more.

The convicted con artist, who went by Anna Delvey at the height of her scamming career, stepped out in New York City ahead of an appearance at immigration court with some brand new bling — but not the kind you might think. On Thursday, June 6, Sorokin was spotted with a sparkly monogram (the letter "A") emblazoned on her ankle monitor.

Along with the latest addition, Sorokin wore a cream-colored double-breasted minidress and matching neck scarf which she co-designed with the label Shao New York. She completed the look with tan stiletto heels.

"COMING SOON TO A COURTHOUSE NEAR YOU!" notorious fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone wrote alongside a sketch of the ensemble on Instagram Stories. Shao New York re-shared the post on their own account.

Sorokin appeared in head-to-toe custom Shao New York during her last outing in May; a white button-down shirt with a black pussy bow, black pencil skirt with a slit and black pumps. She also wore a black blazer with a red "A" stitched on the chest.

In August 2023, Sorokin and Cutrone announced they were teaming up to form the OutLaw Agency to help fashion designer Shao Yang launch her namesake label, SHAO. A month later, the duo held Shao New York's debut fashion show in New York City. Due to Sorokin's house arrest, the event was held on the rooftop of her apartment building.

"I didn't realize how small Anna's apartment was," Cutrone told PEOPLE of the obstacles surrounding the location. "It's really small, so I kind of overshot the mark as a producer to start with, and that's what pushed us onto the rooftop."

Sorokin gained notoriety in N.Y.C. when she posed as a German heiress, swindling socialites, banks and hotels out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. After being evicted from several hotels, she was arrested during a sting operation in October 2017. During her prosecution, it was estimated that she stole around $275,000.

Throughout her trial, Sorokin's courthouse fashion made headlines and even culminated into an Instagram account dedicated to her outfits.
