Troubled actor Robert Blake has turned to Beverly Hills designer JOHN CARROLL for a new courtroom wardrobe.

The former BARETTA star, who is charged with the murder of his wife BONNY LEE BAKLEY, is keen to smarten himself up as he fights for his freedom, so has asked celebrity suit designer Carroll to kit him out.

The designer, who runs Beverly Hills' CARROLL + CO store, says, "You don't want to attract a lot of attention to your wardrobe solid colours, darker colours, classic shirts, classic ties."
