Why Was Lindsay Lohan at Fashion Week?
lilo dinner

We’ve asked a lot from you this week, things like: how do editors shoot hoops without their jackets falling off their shoulders, and who are the ATL twins? We cogitated about Cara’s whereabouts, tried to predict hit songs and wondered aloud in regards to our bleeding feet.

But the most important thing we need discuss, and I say this with an excited outdoor voice here: LINDSAY LOHAN WAS AT FASHION WEEK. And not just fashion week… A DINNER FOR PROENZA MOTHERS’ MAIDEN NAMES SCHOULER!!!!

This is major.

Now earlier today we originally asked why she was at this dinner, which I think gave everyone the wrong impression. If anyone is on team LiLo — it’s me. It’s us. We’re fully rooting for her. We grew up with her, and during her darker hours we waited hopefully for her return.

So back to the why.  Why was she there? The question was meant to be a funny musing for your Friday brain. Personally, my frontal lobe doesn’t seem to be so strong at answering any other type of hard hitting questions post-Thursday jaunts, so I intended to conspire over things like — Maybe she has a movie coming out that revolves around the world of fashion, wherein Lindsay plays an editrix with superpowers and her co-star is Purple’s Olivier Zahm.

But, as some of you pointed out, why wouldn’t she be there? Perhaps her absence would have been more alarming had she not, in fact, attended.

Lindsay appearing at a dinner for one of fashion’s most respected and sought after brands in conjunction with an equally revered magazine is important for two reasons:

1) It signifies the fact that our girl is, indeed, back.

2) It shows us that this is an industry that looks past people’s indiscretions, their old resumes and track records, beyond bad decisions and or even poor timing.

And that, my friends, is a wonderful thing to consider on this Friday afternoon.

Was it Oprah’s interview who shed a new light on Lohan? Or were people ready for this moment for quite some time?

Lindsay Lohan is undeniably back, and we cannot wait to see what’s next.

(Last question though — there are three more fashion weeks for this season. Think we’ll be seeing her in London, Paris or Milan?)

  • Hannah Marr

    maybe she just wants to get along with everyone like in middle school, and bake cakes filled with rainbows and smiles so everyone can eat and be happy

  • yo

    because she’s famous and she gets people writing articles like this one that mention their names??? just a thought

  • Gia

    Why not??

  • Pip

    Because she is famous, she IS BEAUTIFUL, and just because she has a bad past doesn’t make it impossible for her to attend fabulous events and be out at Fashion Week and mingling and enjoying a social life.

  • Amatoria Clothing

    The only thing I can think of is that you would hope if you get really piss ass drunk, no one will notice because everyone will be watching her. It gives you the freedom to shake your tailfeather all night long!

  • s

    who cares….?

  • Style-Squared
  • Leona Mizrahi

    So totally the OPRAH EFFECT.

  • moldub

    on wednesdays, we wear proenza…YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US!

  • alex caiola

    It might be because she made out with a hot dog…

  • ashleymaciejewski

    Perhaps Lindsay is the new Gretchen Weiners: “I’m sorry that people are so jealous of me… but I can’t help it that I’m so popular.”

  • thebloginista

    Because she’s fabulous, but she’s evil.

  • Lisa

    I think it’s like with Britney Spears back then – people feel really sorry for Lindsay and the way everything went for her. Honestly, I think she’s strange but I guess I would invite her over if I hosted a party. I mean, if there are 200 other people, does Lindsay Lohan’s presence really matter any more? Plus: If it makes her happy whatever – maybe she even meets some “normal” people and thinks: “Okay, I could try to be like that too” I guess that’s what they thought.

  • Costume De Rigueur

    Do we know if they have a secret, dirty thing with freckles?


  • Costume De Rigueur

    Or maybe do you have a secret, dirty thing with….FREAKY FRIDAYS???


  • Tania Jacqueline

    Note to Proenza:
    Stop trying to make LiLo happen. It’s just not going to happen.

  • fashmongers

    It won’t be a surprise ( like eyes wide open, with a mouth wow-ing) to see her in fashion industry for the next season. Only-the-cunning-kind-of-mind-she-has

  • Charlotte

    She’s back!! How I missed her so!
    or is this one of Cara’s many disguises? the world may never know

  • Girl. LiLo’s got something to promote besides herself, I guess. A movie? A new product? A NEW LILO?

    Your Friend, Jess

  • Because she want to be relevant again.


  • Tash

    The fashion industry is all about cocaine… hrmm.. wonder why Lindsay is so “in” with them..? I like her, but she does fit in with the industry, even if she is clean..

  • I think its because of Oprah! It made me love her again! I can’t wait to see what’s next too!


  • I’m rooting for Lindsay. I’m sure she, as much as anyone else, wants her to move on to bigger and better things.


  • lalaland

    because she wanted the attention look u gave it to her….
