Here it is! Lindsay Lohan’s, er, hotly anticipated campaign for German label Philipp Plein just dropped. You’ll recall that back in September during Milan’s fashion week, she was snapped behind-the-scenes at the campaign shoot at Lake Como. Philipp Plein had no shortage of superlatives for Lohan and the collection. Here’s a sampling: “magnetic charm,” “irresistibly sexy,” “refined and transgressive.” What is weirdest about all this is that in the release, which is in sort of choppy English, it states: “Not a chance meeting, since Lindsay Lohan has known and loved the young German designer’s collection for some time.” The NY Post had reported back in September that she never heard of the line prior to getting the call to be its face. But whatever. She knows it now.
Since then, of course, LiLo has staged herself a bit of a comeback: a possible stint as Liz Taylor, that Playboy shoot, Jag Jeans campaign, FCUK fragrance campaign, and a random shot on the floor of a Miu Miu dressing room for Purple Diary. But let’s hope her paychecks from those various gigs can cover her latest problem: a big tax bill. The New York Daily News is reporting that she owes about $93,000 in back taxes from 2009.
Fingers crossed for Lindsay in 2012.
