Lindsay Lohan in Soho, NYC

Posted on August 28, 2013

She may be a scabby, smoking, cut-offs-and-boots-wearing picture of … something, but you know what we exclaimed at first sight of these pics?


Lindsay Lohan out and about in Soho, New York City.

“Ohmigod, she looks AMAZING!”

Yes, the bar is that low. But still, she looks healthy and that’s the best her hair has looked in years. As with everything Lohan, you take what you can get, even if it’s the tiniest of baby steps.

  • Diego!

    She looks healthy, yes, but she looks trashy anyway. Sorry guys, the bar is ultra low for you today!

    • 3boysful

      Reminds me of one of my favorite books: Florence King’s “Confessions of a Failed Southern Lady.” The great quote about adhering to her grandmother’s standards is something like “No matter which sex I went to bed with, I never smoked on the street.”

      • Levedi

        Yes! It’s been years, but I love her books on the south. And the description of her mother smoking under the boardwalk seems to LiLo appropriate, “I have seen my mother shake in the street. I have seen my mother become incoherent in the street. But I have never seen my mother smoke in the street.” (I think that was in Southern Ladies and Gentlemen.)

      • Qitkat

        Coming from a very long line of Southern Ladies, I am putting this on my library request list. Had not heard of it.

        • formerlyAnon

          You will recognize behaviors not commonly seen for at least 30 years (and some stiil around). It’s pretty good.

      • neeBarbero

        Just a Northerner who adores reading about Southern women. Just placed on my request list at my library. Thank you for the recommend.

      • Gina Mondzelewski Small

        OMG, I adore this book! Florence King is a gem. Her book “Southern Ladies and Gentleman” is a hoot too, if you have any knowledge about what the American South was like in the 50s and 60s.

  • fiddlecub

    I just can’t with cutoffs cut so low that the pockets slip beneath the hem.

    • I hate that look, unreservedly. Nothing says”trailer park” quite like it.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        I know, I hate it too.

      • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

        How sad that “trailer park” is a step up for her.

    • MoHub

      Technically not beneath, but below or out from under.

      • Sarah

        Grammar! We love it!

        • MoHub

          Well, not grammar so much as usage. The right word in the right circumstance.

          • Sarah

            Corrected again. You are a stickler, but I like it.

      • fiddlecub

        Thank you for contributing something meaningful. Regardless, is that “technically” correct? The first definition of “beneath” is “below,” and certainly a quick Google search reveals thousands of instances of “beneath the hem” used to describe fabric slipping “out from under” the hem–many of those instances in general literature, some in fashion reviews or descriptions. “Beneath” also means “lower than” and “underneath” according to widely available sources. Furthermore, the context of the statement made it abundantly clear what I was describing.

        A good grammar lesson can be fun, but this kind of pedantry brought the bitterness out of this bitter kitten. I mean–really?

        • Bridget Smith

          Besides, the usage issue is really that the cutoffs are cut too HIGH. 😉

    • MGMcD

      The crotch-eating denim diapers. They make the baby Jesus cry. At least these don’t appear to be the super high-waisted version. Those are an abomination.

    • Little_Olive

      Oh, you are so right. Most BK’s are going against the boots today, but if the bottom was more decent I’d say this is even a cute outfit.

      I wish her hair was a “normal” length, with some shape to it. Are those still extensions?

      • tereliz

        Re: extensions: Looks like mama got a new weave to me…

    • Louise Bryan

      I went looking for shorts for my daughter, and the choices, in the store, brand new, were daisy dukes or capris; nothing in between, no bermudas, no walking shorts. The d.d.s in the store had pockets hanging out the bottom, too.

    • Watts

      I saw it on a student on campus recently. Not only were the pockets hanging out, the denim that should have been covering the pockets above the hemline was torn/ripped so you could see the pocket lining THROUGH the shorts as well.

      I’m a generously sized woman and I was pretty sure the underdrawers I had on at the moment were larger than that young woman’s shorts.

  • Kate Andrews

    I like her T-shirt, and the boots would be great with long pants next month. So. Yeah, totally being generous.

  • teensmom99

    Very similar to what my daughter wore to h.s. today (but she’s not allowed to wear ripped jeans). Great to see LiLo looking so healthy (even with cigarette) and always nice to see a celeb who is more or less dressed for the season.

    • teensmom99

      Of course, my daughter’s bag was from PacSun, not Givenchy.

      • Latin Buddy

        Out of curiosity, what do HS kids think of Lindsay Lohan?

        • teensmom99

          HS kids think more or less what we think. They grew up with her with Parent Trap, Mean Girls (which is the ultimate hs cult movie–my daughter knows it by heart) so they are so disappointed by the skankiness. Of course, they walk a fine line because they (hs girls) are so pushed to be sexy but only within certain lines. So while I don’t approve of Lindsey, there’s also a little slut-shaming going on–which I don’t love. Also when my daughter’s friends where such short shorts, she thinks it’s slutty, but she wouldn’t want them much longer.

  • RussellH88

    Her face doesn’t look inflated and her hair doesn’t look fried. At this point, beggars cannot be choosers.

  • thecitysleeps

    Awwww I’m genuinely rooting for her. And her hair is back <3

  • Julia

    It’s definitely the red hair! She never looked right when it was blonde.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Or brunette (and I say this as a very dark haired brunette myself). Some people were just born to be redheads. She pulls that off much better than the other colors she’s tried out.

  • That’s the best I’ve seen her in ages. Her hair looks fantastic!

  • hughman

    Oh honey, when applying base makeup to the face remember we want to FOLLOW the jawline. Otherwise you look like a street mime and we don’t want any more of those “invisible boxes” you seem to envision every where.

    • MilaXX

      Follow the jawline and BLEND. Same with contouring, only drag queens leave it that obvious.

      • teensmom99

        drag queens or Lady GaGa (not sure if those are 2 different categories).

  • Judy_S

    She just looks like any pretty girl dressed in whatever. Could she have been hoping to pass for a non-celeb?

    • decormaven

      Any non-celeb with a Givenchy bag. What’s the price on that, I wonder?

      • Judy_S

        Oops, missed that. I thought, what a nice funky bag, such a change from little divas with designer totes. Oh well.

  • marlie

    I’m all for positive reinforcement, so yes, this is pretty cute, all things considered. But still… stank boot.

  • flamingoNW

    She looks CLEAN! The hair is cute and so is the top.

  • valerie saenz

    I really hope she stays sober.

  • She looks healthy. I’ll take it.

  • Jacquelyn

    Hair looks really good. Here’s hoping she continues to move up!

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    That’s her hair… looking good! Love the bag. Hate the booties!!

    • Getoverit

      She needs to always stay red and never ever EVER go blonde again.

    • decormaven

      Those booties look like an homage to Clarks Wallabees.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Red hair! I’m rooting for her, which I attribute wholly to Mean Girls, and I am not allowing the hideous cut-off pocket peekers to get in the way of my cheer.

    • conniemd

      Yes, why, why, why would anyone make cutoffs with pockets that hang that low?

  • Barb Ray

    I agree she looks great, all things considered. I hope she can turn it around, she’s got a tough road ahead.

  • nicewilliams

    Amen for healthy.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    Love how she does the obligatory free purse pap shots in her own LiLo way. She DOES look amazing!

  • MilaXX

    My exact words were that she looks healthy. Honestly for some folks that’s enough. I’d rather she may D list movies for the rest of her life if she could look this healthy in her personal life. Seriously the world has had enough Curt Cobains, Amy Whinehlouses and Cory Montieths.

  • buttercup

    Hair today, career tomorrow..?

  • Ann VerWiebe

    The lip injections are a little disconcerting (check out the Oprah interview).

    • kmk05

      She’s back to those! It makes me sad.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Well… I wouldn’t go so far as “amazing”. “Breathing” sounds about right.

    And TLo, I have to give you huge props that you put the Lindsay post right next to the Reese post! If you wanted us to “contrast and compare” – oh, believe me, we are!

  • NoveltyRocker

    She really does the “candid” street photo thing better than most. Outfit, attitude, posing—looks captured, less contrived. Of course it is contrived but she certainly can suspend my disbelief.

  • Eric Stott

    Really…..I wouldn’t have guessed this was Lohan – but those sunglasses may be doing the world a favor.

  • mjude

    i am going to give her a break today. she does look better but girl i do not like the stank boots.

  • formerlyAnon

    You go girl. (Nice shirt.)

  • queeniethebold

    i’m getting the vapors just looking at those boot-things. Phewwwwwww! i can’t imagine how stinky they are in real life.

    The top is so pretty; why did she have to trash it with everything else? She could’ve still been funky and cute with any number of other different combinations.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    I guess she looks better than usual. Still, she has some work to do on her image.

  • Joey Melliza

    what has miley twerk cyrus done to you guys — the bar’s really that low?

  • alyce1213

    What I can see of her face (no eyes) looks healthier, more like her old self, and she doesn’t appear to be orange. Thankfully, she seems to have settled back into red hair (probably extensions, which should go next).
    I simply can’t get past the outfit, except for the bag, which is fun (very expensive fun).
    On the one hand, baby steps. On the other . . . the bar is too low.

  • Danielle

    Tsk. Makes me sad that the likes of Givenchy is being smothered in cigarette smoke. I’m fairly certain if I owned a Givenchy, it would sit on a glass pedestal and never see the light of day.

  • Imasewsure

    I hate smoking but I love this picture of her… casual bad ass (and looking so much healthier in spite of the ciggie butt). Must be a Bitter Kitten Day of Forgiveness because I’m 2/2 with Reese and LiLo!! Who Knew

  • mhleta

    You know that ice cream with the strawberry, vanilla and chocolate stripes? That’s what her makeup looks like in the second frame. But…I love the shirt and the bag and, you’re right, that is a great hair color for her. This look does not scream “Attention Whore” or “Train Wreck” and this is indeed a positive step.

  • Amy909

    I initially thought it was Lady Gaga. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.

    • Imasewsure

      Can’t be Gaga (stank boots but no stank wig!)

  • imakeart

    Are we sure it’s her??

  • elemspbee

    I thought the same thing. Whatever she has injected in her face has settled down. Hair looks great.

  • Trickytrisha

    I covet that hair.

  • Michelle Wilson

    I love that bag.

  • Clydette Wantland

    She looks great, for Lindsay. She needs to shave her legs though.

    • jjtxgrrl

      Thank you!!

    • mom2ajs5

      These pics made me think of all the times I’ve run out stubbly. “no one will notice, right?!” Um, yes, people will notice. And of course, I am a mere mortal, but the sun accents that shit on celebrities and non just the same I suppose.

      • I’ve literally never noticed whether anyone’s legs are shaved or not unless their hair was a couple inches long. It’s probably safe for us mere mortals to run around in stubbles. 😀

    • gowiththeflo

      I don’t think it’s stubble. She has lots of freckles, so maybe that’s what we’re seeing.

  • tetisheri

    She has to start somewhere.

  • Blair Sylvester

    Her face looks so much younger. she could almost be mistaken for a girl of 30

  • SaraQ

    I think what’s nice is that she looks believable. She looks healthy without looking like she’s trying to make me believe she’s healthy. So it’s a low bar for fashion, but still nice to see.

  • Laurie Landry

    You’re right she looks healthy other than the ciggy.
    Love that bag! Any info on it?

    • Imasewsure

      Givenchy…. we can’t afford it… she got it for free

  • GorgeousThings

    From some angles, it looks like she’s smoking a big ol’ blunt.

    But yes, she looks better than she has in AGES

  • bellafigura1

    What’s amazing and interesting is she seems so clearly, um, clear in the photos, whereas for the past few years, she has communicated a bizarre disconnect, a blurriness. It’s like the spell has been broken — I hope for good.

  • Cate

    She looks a bit grungy, but at least I would believe her to be a girl in her twenties now. That’s a huge improvement.

  • Lilak

    Everyone looks better in shades, so I’m reserving my final grade (har) till I see her without them. Points already, though, for the much-improved hair.

  • gubblebumm

    She’s smoking and smokers NEVER EVER look healthy. Sorry just can’t

  • anyalama

    Funny, the first thing I exclaimed was “Trout pout!”.

  • gubblebumm

    And her hair is gonna stink from the smoke, no matter how “shiney” it is… blech blech blech…even posting her picture and saying she looks good, shame on you too!!!

  • mom2ajs5

    Yes, the smoking is gross. But she’s doing okay. I don’t want to speculate as to what she has done in the past, but we all are visualizing Lindsay doing much worse than smoking a cigarette when we think of her messing up. Right? It’s baby steps. Let her look healthy even though she is smoking because she looks better than she has in awhile.

  • HVM

    I want her bag!

  • Nicole Little

    Makeup line in 2nd pic! HEAVY

  • AnnPopovic

    With THAT mother and THAT father it’s a bloody miracle the girl is still alive. You GO LiLo! Defy the odds and make them all eat their words!

  • Afabulous50

    The bar can’t be that low..ever.

  • Garcia Loca

    I agree with TLo. Girlfriend no longer looks like I’ll be winning $100 in an office celebrity death pool. Because for a while there, she did.

  • save_the_hobbit

    Keep on keepin’, girl. Honestly I think she looks great.
