Ellen Von Unwerth Shoots Lindsay Lohan As Lohan’s Life Falls Apart

LINDSAY LOHAN: Do you know who Ellen Von Unwerth is? You should, ’cause she’s responsible for 50% of your most favorite photos ever — especially the lesbionic ones, like the smokin’ hot Jenny Shimizu shoot immortalized in her book Couples. Even though we promised ourselves not to make another Lindsay Lohan headline this week, we could not resist drawing attention to this match made in heaven, for this month’s Style magazine. Here’s the shoot and the interview (thanks to lindsay lohan online):

Ellen Von Unwerth also shot Lindsay for British GQ in 2006:

The story, called Car Crash Couture, observes: “The first thing you notice is how tiny [Lindsay Lohan] is, then what a large bosom she has. Her pale skin has been sprayed the colour of a ginger-snap biscuit and the lines etched into her freckled forehead make her look at least 10 years older than she is.” The interview is above in the gallery but also it is here. weho-lilo-02

E! Online reports that “according to the New York Post, not only has onetime singer Lindsay Lohan been dropped by Casablanca Records, it has also been revealed that her high-profile (and widely panned) fashion gig for Ungaro is a freebie. They also claim the free clothes mentioned in the Style article were totally not free at all.

Meanwhile, The New York Daily News has declared that Lindsay Lohan is addicted to shoes. Okey-doke.

Samantha will undoubtedly be here soon to rescue her from the abyss as she seems to be doing JUST FINE. (@timesonline)

LARAMIE: The stars came out for a 10th anniversary production of The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later, including Zach Quinto, Johnny Galecki and Helen Shaver. Our BFF Haviland went and met Judy Shepard and said it was all very inspiring.

AUSTRALIAN IDOL: Australian Idol has lost two female contestants in recent weeks – bisexual Kim Cooper and lesbian cowgirl Kate Cook:

Kate Cook has defended being open about her sexuality on the show, saying, “I think, the more you are open and honest the more people love you, I don’t think being open about my sexuality changed anything.

“You’ve just got to be real and open with people, I don’t know how else to be. People knew what I was about, and god bless em for getting behind me.”

LIP SERVICE: On Lip Service Lip Service and Gay TV in general: The article looks at recent controversy from British portrayals of gays in media and includes quotes from Julie Burchill, who created Sugar Rush, a kickcass lesbian show that got canceled. Someone in the article says: “In the past, British TV has been really bad at gay stereotypes. There’s a need to make sure that characters have a bigger role than being gay,” she says. “Good drama avoids stereotypes and clichés.” (@independent)

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

  1. I can’t begin to describe the feelings I have right now about Tegan’s head in the kitty cut-out.
    What on earth just happened? o_O

  2. I have a lot of feelings about Kate Cook getting booted from Australian Idol, but I might save it for audiostraddle. But I will say that Kim, the bisexual one, had a pretty good innings for the amount of talent she had.

  3. Man, if talking about Lindsay Lohan all the time is wrong, I don’t want to be right. She looks hot in that story! Not as good as she did in 2006, but whatever! Also, what is up with that opening line? Can you really get paid for writing stuff like that?

  4. All of Lindsay Lohan’s problems could be solved with a box of red hair dye.

    Does anyone have any freakin’ idea what that music video was about?

    • This is kinda like asking “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?” The world will never know. All I can think of is what the “hell?”

    • There is a behind the scenes vid on there website, SO CUTE. Anyway T said it isn;t about anything. Its just a fun quirky video
