Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG) became known for the iconic collars she wore on the bench. The Pegasus limited edition bib by Stella & Dot, hand-made of metallic feathers sewn to silk organza cascade, was said to be one of her favorite collars. She chose to wear it for the official 2018 Supreme Court justices photograph, which was taken her first day back after recovering from a fall that fractured her ribs. The collar sent the unspoken – but very clear – message that the justice was back in action and ready for duty. When previously asked when there will be enough women on the court, she replied, "When there are nine."
This Pegasus collar was featured in a Time magazine commemorative article not long after Ginsburg died in 2020, and will be included in the forthcoming book, "The Collars of RBG: A Portrait of Justice" by Elinor Carucci and Sara Bader. Time called the justice a fashion pioneer, stating she subtly encoded "meaning in her dress." The Ginsburg family shared details with Time about the collars represented in the article.

Catalogue note: Four of her collars are in museums – the Lace Judicial Collar, the "Majority" Collar, the "Dissent" Collar, the Decorative Polychrome Tiled Collar
