5 Times Lindsay Lohan Dipped Her Toe Into the Fashion Pond – Vogue.com
Lindsay Lohan is stirring up controversy once again. However, this time it has nothing to do with speaking in a weird accent or getting into a public brawl with her boyfriend. Instead, the actress turned activist posted a curious selfie on Instagram in which she’s wearing an embellished headscarf. She captioned the post with, “New Fashion Line coming soon.” So what’s all the fuss about? For one thing, the teaser comes just a couple of weeks after Lohan told the press that she felt “racially profiled” when she claimed she was stopped at London‘s Heathrow airport and asked to remove her headscarf (this sound bite also came amid rumors that she’s actually converting to Islam). Furthermore, Lohan doesn’t exactly have the neatest track record when it comes to launching successful fashion ventures.
In 2008, The Parent Trap darling launched a leggings line called 6126, after Marilyn Monroe’s birthday, which eventually tanked after her very public legal and personal issues in late 2010. Aside from the “designer” leggings that sold for up to $140, let us also recall the epic misstep that was LiLo for Emanuel Ungaro. In 2009, the Paris fashion house recruited Lohan to come on board as an artistic adviser alongside head designer Estrella Archs. The resulting collection included an array of heart-shaped pasties, bandeau tops, and hot pink bandage dresses. Women’s Wear Daily deemed it “an embarrassment.”
Lohan had a rough go in the fashion industry during those days but she kept on keeping on. In 2014 she partnered with streetwear label Civil Clothing for a men’s line that sold at PacSun, and in 2015, she teamed up with the British brand Lavish Alice on a capsule collection that included pieces like a striped cape, a fringed minidress, and flared knit pants. And though it doesn’t exactly count as a full-on fashion venture, you’ve got to hand it to Lohan for having chutzpah—after being made fun of for that strange, mixed-origin accent late last year, she released a line of T-shirts with the slogan, I Only Speak Lilohan.
It’s too soon to tell what this new headscarf-filled fashion line will actually be and whom it will be for but either way, based on Lohan’s sartorial CV, it’s bound to cause a stir. Unsurprisingly in fact, it already has.
