Lindsay Lohan’s passion for fashion

September 24, 2009

FILM-MTV/
Want to know the real Lindsay Lohan? Check out her latest clothing range.

Hollywood’s wild child recently signed up with fashion house Emanuel Ungaro as an artistic adviser to add pizzazz to the ageing fashion brand. Her first collection will be unveiled on October 4 and it’s one she says is very close to her heart.

“I think working with Ungaro it’s more personal for me,” she told Reuters in Singapore, where she’ll be hosting a three-day music concert that coincides with the country’s Formula One race.

“It’s kind of more about who I am and what I want to put out there in terms of what people wear and different styles. And what I wear in films means a lot to the character and what people take from the character.”

Over the past two years, Lohan’s creative endeavors have been eclipsed by scandals, nightclub antics and drug problems. The 23-year-old was briefly jailed in 2007 after being convicted of drink driving and cocaine possession, and made to wear an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet.

But she said she’s been dealing with headlines for such a long time, that she doesn’t let them get in the way of her work.

“I’m pretty numb to everything that gets said and goes on. I’m not going to say the paparazzi don’t get annoying, when I, you know, just want that alone time. But it’s not that bad. I don’t really pay attention to it, in all honesty,” she said.

Lohan loves to shop and her previous fashion ventures have included a line of leggings that drew mixed reviews from fashionistas.

And, like a true fashionista, Lohan arrived almost two hours — or shall we say fashionably? — late for media interviews.

 

Comments

I’m sorry Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to put on an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet in ’07. I think there should certainly be a two-tier criminal justice enforcement policy that permits established artists such as Lindsay Lohan to medicate with medical cocaine and alcohol.

Research needs to be done into the effects on the creative psyche where substances such as these are concerned.

 

I think Lindsay Lohan is trying to get back on the right track, and it would be nice if she could be given a chance…

If LiLo is finding herself through fashion, more power to the little,lost girl. Maybe she will find some direction and purpose in her life. I just get so tired of all the double standards that star struck judges allow her and all those other dazed and confused celebrities.
