In a bizarre move that makes me think Lindsay Lohan and the editors of Vogue suffer from amnesia and severe blindness, LiLo is on the August cover of Spanish Vogue in a Marilyn Monroe-inspired photo shoot. In the image, she dons a blond, Marilyn-ish wig, and on her dress is a ginormous black-and-white print of… READ MORE »

Her acting career may be in the crapper, but Lindsay Lohan’s fashion line is a hit. She’s kicking ass with her fast-selling debut legwear line, created through her company, 6126 (a name inspired by Lohan’s idol, Marilyn Monroe, whose birthday was June 1, 1926).
