    Monday wasn't exactly a good day for Lauryn Hill, but she did look good.

    The singer showed up to her Newark, N.J., sentencing looking chic and polished in a dark ensemble paired with a blue, white and orange scarf. Her prejail attire also included some oversize sunglasses and a preppy gingham purse.

    Unfortunately for Ms. Hill, she won't get to wear clothes like this much longer. A judge sentenced the Fugees singer to three months in prison, despite the fact that she paid off a court-ordered restitution of $554,000 to the IRS and additional taxes and penalties prior to her tax-evasion hearing.

    She was also sentenced to one year of probation, three months of which are to be spent in house arrest.

    You live and you learn.
