No, I’m not talking about Venus Williams’ most recent fashion statement at the Australian Open – the one she said was inspired by “Alice in Wonderland.”
I’m talking about Lindsay Lohan’s body-hugging white number – the one she wore today to her latest gig in a courtroom.
She said she wore white to express her “innocence.” Nobody was buying it. The media has been all over the inappropriateness of her wardrobe selection. Apparently, people expected her to dress for church.
I’m not about to get into what celebrities should wear to their trials or arraignments or whatever; when Michael Jackson was on trial here in Santa Barbara County he wore pajamas, remember?
Hard to top that. What’s amazing to me is the absolute craze Lohan’s dress has started. Women have been ordering it in record numbers and sales have gone through the roof in the past 24 hours alone.
It’s a cute dress. Fine. But are women really desperate enough to make Lindsay Lohan their fashion role model as she tries to wriggle out of yet another date with prison?
I can’t help thinking about the women in Egypt, because I’ve been glued to CNN for hours watching the demonstrators and wondering what tomorrow will bring for them. What the women in that country wouldn’t give for the opportunity to wear a cute little white dress if they felt like it. On them, it might actually stand for something.
