Lindsay Lohan's other fashion gig


You have to admire Lindsay Lohan for continuing to pursue fashion after taking such a beating from the press (me included) during her brief stint as artistic advisor of French luxury brand Ungaro. That takes courage and dedication.

For fall, she's expanding her leggings-only fashion line 6126 into a full collection of looks to take a woman from day to night. Well not quite...more like from night to morning, but God knows there's a market for that.  Lohan

Lohan, the brand's creative director, wasn't in her showroom to tell me about the collection. But she does appear in the fall look-book, posing in thigh-high boots in one shot, and an outfit that could be described as a sequin jumper in another. 

Her PR rep reports that "despite what everyone says," Lohan is very involved in the design process, choosing fabrics and inspecting samples at her downtown L.A. studio, even having all the leather jackets redone at the last minute because the sleeves didn't fit snugly enough.

The bread and butter of the collection is still leggings. ("Lindsay really started the legging trend," her sales rep says.) They come in every stripe -- with leather or lace insets, studded details, a dusting of black sequins and more. The coolest pair appeared to have tiny rips all over, but not in a raunchy way.

Mini dresses, the kind you'd wear out clubbing in Hollywood, were also key, the best one in black crocodile embossed leather (it comes with long sleeves or sleeveless). The leathers were all pretty likable actually, including a drapey burnished gold leather jacket (it also comes as a vest). Chunky cardigans, sequin or lace-covered hoodies (you know how Lindsay likes to rock a hood) and nylon puffer jackets rounded out the 280-piece collection.

According to Lohan's rep, store buyers liked what they saw. Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Ron Herman are all on board with the collection, which hits stores in July, priced at about $60 to $1,000.

Maybe LiLo does have a future in this industry. After all, fashion loves a comeback almost as much as Hollywood does.

You can put nice clothes on a pig but it won't change the pig. It will still get dirty and screw it up because.. of course it is a pig. You just can't change em.

wow....she is hideous. How sad that society keeps glorifying this image. This poor girl is going to die all alone in a hotel room somewhere and people are going to be sad for about 30 minutes and forget she existed....just like all the other "idols" and false gods that people worship day in and day out. I hope she wakes up one day and throws hollywood out and gets her life back.

I'm sorry ladies but footless leggings are revolting, I don't understand why you would not want to complete the entire look with sexy hosiery (tights stockings or pantyhose) but this mess is an abomination. Not attractive in the least. I guess I just don't get fashion.

Who continues to hire this washed up druggie?

and lord knows how many animals there are on the farm who think just that about the pig... oink...oink, eew!

Was she an advisor to a company that is now begging to be helped financially? Maybe I'm thinking of another Hollywood starlet who contributed to a fashion fall.

I'd rather buy some classy $200 shoes than pay $200 for leggings. Let us clarify here, she did not start any trend, whether it be a coke or legging trend. I remember in the early 90's stirrup leggings were all the craze--at least my nanny would wear them to work out while she took me to the park. Wouldn't touch anything with Lohan's name attached to it.

Love you as an actress, you should focus on your career before it goes down the toilet with your vomit from being a herpes ridden club urchin.
