Turns out Lindsay Lohan can move product–just not her own.
When Lohan showed up to court (again) this past Wednesday, this time to plead not guilty to grand theft charges that she stole a $2,500 necklace, she did so in a Kimberly Ovitz skin-tight white mini dress. We never thought we’d be comparing Lindsay Lohan to Michelle Obama, but just as Mrs. O has proven she can move merch (at J.Crew or White House Black Market or H&M), the Kimberly Ovitz “Glavis Albino” dress Lohan wore, which retails for $575, is selling like hot cakes (and is sold out most places).
According to ABC News, the dress has sold out everywhere online, and the NY Post is reporting that Bloomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus have sold out as well. And despite a release we just got from Starworks’ VIP placement trumpeting Amy Adams wearing Kimberly Ovitz, an Ovitz rep told the Post that “Kimberly had no role in Lindsay Lohan wearing the dress.” Starworks told us Amy Adams was their first placement for Ovitz.
Despite the insta-success Lohan has brought Ovitz, she doesn’t seem to have had the same effect with her own line of leggings and apparel. WWD is reporting that Lohan’s 6126 line, once carried by Nordstrom, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Henri Bendel, “has quietly receded from the shelves of department and specialty stores.”
Maybe she should wear more 6126 to court. Making courtroom fashion statements has become old hat for Lohan–she famously etched a “fuck you” on one of her tie dye manicured nails, and at a single court appearance this past July, the NY Daily News noted that she changed outfits three times during breaks and recesses (just like an awards show!).
