This weekend, The Los Angeles Times discusses a budding brew between Sarah Jessica Parker and Nina Ricci. As you all know, SJP wore a Theyskens gown to the NYC premiere of Sex and the City - the same gown that Lauren Santo Domingo wore to the Met Ball about a month ago; the same gown that Lindsay Lohan trashed up in Harper's Bazaar before that. SJP is peeved because Nina Ricci told her the dress was exclusively hers, and she tells Cathy Horyn at The Times that "there is a relationship between the entertainment industry and fashion. We've watched sales dwindle and we've watched people be less inclined to spend money on clothes." LA blogger Monica Corcoran's reaction? "[My blog] loves the passive-aggressive threat appliqued to Parker's statement.... Parker's comment about dwindling sales seems to suggest that only red carpet exposure will save a label. Um, do you really think SATC fans ran out to buy this silver gown after seeing it at the premiere?" It's pretty funny, albeit a little harsh - obviously, SJP would want some crazy new dress for the biggest movie event of her life, and she's incredulous that a fashion house lied to her about it - but it's not the best part of the story. That goes to what the LA Times labeled their photo of Lohan in the Nina Ricci dress. Download the photo from the site, and notice it's name: ADDICT IN A PRETTY DRESS.jpg Hey Monica, can we buy you a drink?
