Red Carpet Re-Do: Lindsay Lohan Dresses Like Aladdin In Vegas

At an event for Milan Fashion Week, Lindsay Lohan was a head to toe hot mess (as Christian Sirano would say) leaving us confused, and frankly a little uncomfortable.  We know Linds has a house full of clothes, so why this particular combination? In this ugly edition of Red Carpet Re-Do, we show how Lindsay went desperately wrong–and how to make it better:

What She Did Wrong:

  • Sequins, prints and fur? We like mixing prints, but we’re getting a headache.
  • If a fashion genie could grant us one wish, we would ask that no one ever again be allowed to wear sequined, printed, drawstring genie pants.
  • Big bangles or a chunky necklace, not both.
  • Loose fitting clothes in dull colors like gray and brown are better suited as pajamas, not as red carpet attire.

What She Should Have Done:

Stick with simplicity on top if you’re going bold on the bottom.

Instead of Lindsay’s furry vest, we recommend a more versatile tuxedo style.  This vest by J.Crew ($148) can be worn casually during the day or dressed up for work or an evening event.  Throw on a crushed silk tank top, like this one also by J.Crew ($65) and you’ve put together a classically chic look.

Unlike Lindsay’s heinous take on printed sequins, this DKNYC sequin mini skirt ($74.50) is seriously stylish.  We’ve been lusting over these L.A.M.B Z-Project heels ($303) for some time now, and we think the way your legs will look in them will be well worth the splurge.

Metallic accessories tie together the different elements of the outfit

This chain link necklace by Betsey Johnson ($88) plays off of the black metallics of the skirt and could be worn a completely different way with a simple t-shirt and jeans. CC SKYE chain link clutch can be worn across the body or held as a clutch.
