Vogue España: Lindsay Lohan as Marilyn Monroe
Oh please. Fashion editors keep trying to make that Marilyn comparison happen. Editors? It ain’t happening. And another thing, fashion editors: there is a tiny handful of actresses who can pull off a fashion editorial (see: Swinton, Tilda and Blanchett, Cate) but the vast majority of actresses have no idea what modeling entails. They always make the same mistake: they think the pictures are about them and not about the clothes. It’s always way too posey-posey and they look into the camera way too often.
Worse, we can’t get over how dated this editorial looks. Like something out of Vanity Fair circa 1992. The Hollywood sign, Vogue? Really?
The clothes are fine, if a little unimaginative. There’s nothing “Marilyn” about any of them (except for the Dolce & Gabbana, but that’s only because it’s so literal). And all Lindsay managed to do here is make a bunch of really expensive clothes look cheap. Fail, Vogue. BIG fail.
