Lindsay Lohan for Blank Magazine

Posted on May 04, 2011

Lindsay gets her Boogie Nights on once again.

Blank Magazine, May 2011 issue
Photographers: Steven Gomillion and Dennis Leupold
Stylist: Angelo De Santo
Hair: Aaron Light @ Celestine

Oh, honey. No. Cigarette in your mouth and hand on your boob? Again? This is what it’s come to?

Not that this represents a low point for her. In fact, it’s an indication of how low she’s fallen that this isn’t her lowest point.

 

 

 

 

It’s kind of depressing that the talented, promising actress of less than a decade ago is doing another in a string of editorials that play on her strung out and slightly skanky image. It’s like she’s got nothing else left. And the irony of it is, she looks better here than in any pictures we’ve seen of her for a long time. She looks healthy and focused and the hair and makeup are pretty. It’s the setting and the clothes that are so tired. It’s a shame, because she could have probably pulled off a classier set of pictures than this. She’s done these ’70s/’80s inspired layouts for half her career, it seems.

    Ooooh, sad indeed. I keep remembering how she looked in ‘Mean Girls’ – so fresh, pretty, normal weight. You’re right that hair, makeup, and body weight look the best they have in a long time, tho why a natural redhead would go for bleached extensions is beyond me. Look at her hands in the last photo, tho – they look 30 years older than the rest of her. Poor girl.

  • anonymaus

    Just for kicks I’d like to see her doing a prim and proper shoot wearing a pillbox hat and a Chanel suit.

    • Jrob

      Great idea! I bet she would rock it, poor girl.

      • Lisa

        Ooooh, I don’t! Not that she looks any better here, but the pillbox hat and Chanel suit would be even sadder than this!

    • MilaXX

      I think that’s the point. no one thinks Lindsay when they want to do a prim and proper photoshoot

  • Anonymous

    Is it me, or the gold sequin jump suit suddenly taking over the world? Here’s hoping this is a brief 15 minutes for that, hope not to see it as much as that white lace dress that has been used everywhere for what feels like a year.

  • Isapaiva

    She looks surprisingly good. Healthy even. If it was a different setting these would not be half bad, she’s actually an alright model for an actress.

  • Anonymous

    Who decreed that the shiny metallic jumpsuit is a wardrobe option all of a sudden?

    If anyone cares, I’m opposed.

    (She’s pretty and if there are any brain cells left, could have a career, still. Though not the one that once appeared possible. Sad.)

  • aussiegal77

    Nothing else to add. Sad and a waste of what little talent she had before. Does no one care for this woman?

    • fafafab

      well both her parents are out-of-control attention whores, so I dare to say: NO, no one cares for her

      it’s sad actually, I loved her in Mean Girls, what happened to that sweet girl?… she’s gone

  • Verena

    Well, it’ not exactly like she can pick and choose at this point. Even though she likes to pretend she can.

    There does appear to be some life and focus behind the eyes that wasn’t there a year ago.

  • ailsieengland

    She looked so much hotter Mean Girls-era. SO much hotter. It’s sad. But she looks a lot better here than she has in a long time.

    Is that a new nose?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000357883139 Lynzee Michelle Lamb

      Her nose does look different in this spread, I don’t remember her nostrils flaring out like that before.

    • Tritone

      I agree, I miss thick Lindsay. Even if she has to be blonde, these pics would be 10x better if she gained back the weight. Though she seems to be on her way. Maybe that’s what’s going on in the burger pic, actually…

    • Mac

      I wondered about the nose… she didn’t need that!

  • fafafab

    damn africa, what happened?

  • Jill K

    The only good thing I can say about the pictures is, at least she has polished toenails. I’m sick of seeing celebs’ bare toenails. I *know* these women can afford a proper pedicure! So KUDOS for painted nails!

  • Momzilla

    Steven: Finish your pita pocket before we put on the next dress, darling.
    Dennis: We continued to shoot during her ciggie breaks, why should we stop for lunch?
    Steven: Lins? Close your mouth a bit: you’ve got bacos in your teeth.
    Angelo: Wait! I wanna wrap a belt around her head first. Perfect! Now shoot!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000357883139 Lynzee Michelle Lamb

    Is that Iman’s jumpsuit?

  • http://twitter.com/asciident Melissa Della

    She does look really good — from what I can tell, since these pics look like hipstamatic/instagram uploads — but the styling makes her look as trashy as the public thinks she is. Sad.

  • Anonymous

    What happened to her adorable freckles? She does look good, but I honestly don’t recognize her. I’ve got to ask you (and other readers) aside from ‘Mean Girls’ where did she show promise? ‘Herbie Fully Loaded’? ‘Georgia Rule’?

    • antares

      Not a fan of hers, but she did get good press for Freaky Friday, The Parent Trap and even some good coverage for the Prairie Home Companion.

    • Verandah babe

      She was awesome in Parent Trap, playing identical twins, one with an English accent.

    • http://profiles.google.com/kellerja Jill Keller

      I think the freckles are a casualty of the lighting, makeup and photoshopping needed to hide the age on her skin. Sad.

  • http://profiles.google.com/jerome.springer Jerome Springer

    Holy Crap!! She’s not ACTUALLY eating that burger is she?!

  • Jrob

    Someone’s had a lot of work done. She’s looking more like ScarJo than LiLo. And this editorial does not help. I feel sorry for her.

  • MilaXX

    Sadly I agree. This is how the public will perceive her for a long time. Even her (rumored) movie roles are in this same vein. Playing Linda Lovelace or Victoria Gotta isn’t going to do anything to shake that image. Talented or not with the legal fees she seems to rack up I doubt she can turn down any legitimate offers.

  • Lori G

    So sad. How fitting that it’s for a magazine called “Blank.” Clearly the editors and stylists are so vapid, they can’t think of doing something remotely different for a LiLo shoot (although, if they had gotten Terry Richardson, it might have even been worse!). xoxo

  • marciekr

    At this rate, she’ll be doing soft-core porn next…

  • Anonymous

    Look at the bright side: the “eat a sandwich” crowd will be happy.

  • RyRyRy

    Are we doing this, really? She needs to go away – just lay low, quit fame whoring and get herself together, if she can. She seems to have an uncontrollable urge for attention, no matter what kind. That is the biggest addiction she needs to address.

  • http://twitter.com/wrenaria Kimmy Hescock

    I miss the sweet little redheaded version of her from before the crazy came out full swing. Sad.

  • Nancy

    She is a sad loss. Pretty, talented, completely wasted. Breaks my heart.

  • mjude

    so sad

  • http://profiles.google.com/stelledelmare9 Samantha Scott

    I think it’s come down to this because this is really all she can do to stay in the spotlight without it being a news story about her drug and alcohol problems. Because of those problems I don’t think (though I don’t know for sure) anybody’s really offering her classier things.

  • Anonymous

    Go to jail, already.

    • ASK

      I usually would not wish that on anyone — but it is maddening when celebrities are so often given a pass when actually INNOCENT non-celebs get locked up (and not for just 15 minutes like the celebs)

  • OhMyGodItsKatrina

    :/ Most of this just looks trashy. Some of it is legitimately pretty, but has trashy undertones. Maybe I’ll just never get over her with blonde hair. I miss redhead Lindsay. I miss cute freckled redheaded Lindsay. The one that doesn’t look so strung out.

  • Anon

    Two words:
    Used. Up.
    Buh. Bye.
    OK, so that was four words.

  • unimpressed kitten

    I hate her lip job the most. So obviously fake.

  • http://twitter.com/quittobacconow Laura Loew CTTS

    As a smoking cessation coach, I am saddened by these pictures that still attempt to glorify smoking as glamorous and seductive . Tobacco kills 1200 people each day in the US and almost 500.000 people succumb every year to tobacco-related diseases. Every day I work to help people who wish they never started and don’t think they can quit smoking. There is a reason cigarettes are not advertised in mainstream magazines anymore. . .and pictures like these just prove the point. Just hoping no one looks at Lindsay as a ‘role model’ anyway!

  • –M

    On a non-Lindsay note: the shoes she’s wearing in the photo of her lying down are fab. Want a pair right now.

  • http://profiles.google.com/amanda.leigh.albert Amanda Albert

    This might be one of the trashiest editorials i’ve ever seen.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    The picture of her with the cigarette and holding her boob would have been so pretty had she not “skanked” it. She is at least looking better, but she needs to go back to her natural hair color.

  • Rando

    Gotta pay the bills. If this is all you’re offered, you take it. There’s drug dealers to pay. & lawyers. & hangers on. & enabling parents.

  • Anon E. Mouse

    Girl needs to keep her head down and do some serious, decent work, no matter how small the role or what she gets paid for it, and start building her career / life back again. I hate to see people fall apart like this.

  • Anonymous

    On the plus side – it’s good to see her looking clear-eyed. On the down side – at this point, this is so played out it makes it look like no one else will hire her.

  • http://profiles.google.com/trashilove { edi } ilovetrash

    yes, & soon she’ll be working for heidi fleiss {or her current equivalent}. & i’m not being catty, or even bitchy, just honest.

    this was not shot by terry richardson. it was shot by people who were influenced by terry richardson. & since that affects/infects even more of the populace than does/will the life of lindsay lohan, it’s even more pathetic.

    Good Lord, I wish she’d just go ahead and do some porn and get it over with.

    What’s with the burger?

  • lala

    Desperation and entitlement rolled up into one very messy package, and yet there’s nothing interesting in these pictures. Surely a good photographer could dig in and find SOMETHING there??

    In the last picture, the image in the smoky mirror looks look like she has really hairy legs. It was disconcerting,

    “Hi, I’m a total whore who will probably (definitely) steal cash from your wallet while you are in the bathroom peeing.” That’s the look they were going for, right?

    She needs to go away for a while.

  • http://profiles.google.com/thisiscelia Celia

    Why? Seriously…why?

    The expression on her face is very apropos for the magazine.

  • Megan

    Well this is pretty trashy, but at least she looks very healthy and pretty. She has nice eyebrows.

    • http://twitter.com/pinup_ghoul Beth

      I agree. She looks thin and pretty, not freaky-skinny like she has been. She has a great figure and a beautiful face, I just wish it were used to its best effect, you know?

  • eclectic

    I’ll freely admit that I came to look at the editorial determined to be fair, but hoping to all that it wasn’t good. It’s not. Her face looks good, there’s good make up and over all, she looks healthy (I wonder if it’s her or photoshop. I hope it’s her. I’m not that big of a bitch).
    But still, it’s a bad bordering on tragic. Whoever came up with the golden jumpsuit one should be fired on the spot.

  • http://www.facebook.com/natalie.mclendon Natalie McLendon

    Am I hallucinating or is the bottom portion of her face beginning to look like Megan Fox? Whose nose is that? It certainly isn’t Lohan’s.

    Can this girl make a good decision?

  • Anonymous

    I wish she could go back to red hair and freckles. I thought she was gorgeous back then. Why bleach the hell out of naturally red hair?! It pains me.

    The pictures actually look alright, I suppose. And appropriate.

  • fashionablylate

    Despite all her troubles, the main thing I think whenever I see her is still “damn, she is beautiful”.

  • twotonepeeper

    At least they didn’t photoshop the freckles from her legs.

  • http://www.facebook.com/devin.christopher17 Devin Christopher

    You know, yea the whole LiLo skanky pics are old and played out, but I can’t help but love her. She’s gorgeous and say what you want, she is talented. I still have hope for her. I see a resemblance to a young Drew Barrymore. Child star turned drug addicted, party-girl reformed into glam actress. Im hoping she will do the same and become the great lil actress I know she can be.

    Who knows if this child will ever return to glory…its just so saddening. Butttttt!!!!!! You get what you deserve.

  • Nancy lee

    Who is making these decisions for her? He/she should be fired!! If I were her agent, and she was clean, I would really push for a Vogue editorial, something angelic and ethereal. I think she was a really good actress, with tons of potential, and so beautiful and different looking. This is just a shame.

  • 3foxes

    There is nothing fresh, witty, *wink-wink*, or sexy about editorial photos of an actress, when they are indistinguishable from her tabloid photos.

    Eew, honey. Get your hands out of your mouth and at least make an attempt at ‘classy’.

    Way to work on your image, Lindsey.

    I see she is still a skank!

  • Mary 1167

    C’mon. That hair is ree-donk-ulous, especially in the last shot. She’s veering into Dolly Parton territory (only Dolly is classier, of course).

    Hard to believe she’s still in her 20′s. She looks so much older, but that’s what hard living will do to you.

  • Anonymous

    Her makeup is flawless and that is about the only thing about this editorial. So sad. Her face looks so lovely here, but the clothes, the setting and posing make her look like a cheap whore.

    I liked this better when it was fiona Apple’s criminal video. Also at least 70% of pictures taken from 1970 – 1982.

    I wonder how much of the money she earned from this shoot went to her douchebag dad. Guess it’s a toss up between him and her dealer.

    She’s like Sampson: her hair was her power. Once she went blond there was no returning to normalcy.

    Sigh. I miss Disney or Mean Girls Lindsay.

  • Emma Wallace

    Verena is right; she can’t really pick and choose. So hopefully the healthy look and focus show that she’s getting her life back on track and there are better things to come.

    It’s not that I’m a fan of hers in particular, but I hate to see people in unpleasant or bad situations. I cheer for her and for others (like Charlie Sheen. It just seems like something is wrong there) to get through whatever it is that they are struggling with.

  • eek!

    In a few I actually see more than a hint of irony and humor. Unfortunately in the others she just looks glazed. Sooooo……

    Blank magazine? Are you sure that’s not a typo, and it should be Skank?

    Maybe I was never a fan to begin with? I never thought of her as talented, but certainly able to meet a certain demographic. That being said…I like the shoot she did here.
