Lindsay Lohan got an overzealous photographer kicked out of the Cynthia Rowley show this past Sunday when he stepped on the uncovered runway in an effort to snap a few pictures of her. This was after she made what sounds like a grand and crispy entrance.
Via The Fug Girls:
A platinum-and-orange waif in tiny trousers, massive shades, and hypnotically puffy lips burst forth from backstage, hustling to a front-row seat with ruthless efficiency (and several security guards). For one glorious, confusing moment, we — and, we later learned, everyone in the rows around us — thought this walking creamsicle had to be Donatella Versace. Then, the entire room full of journalists sat ramrod straight and let out excited, disbelieving, four-letter expletives as we all realized this was actually Lindsay Freaking Lohan.
Naturally, people wasted no time in subtly and not-so-subtly snapping pictures of her, and one photographer made the mistake of stepping on the mirrored runway (a major fashion show no-no) so as to better get all up in her face. This made the Lohan and its cleaner fish extremely alarmed!
[This] prompt[ed] event organizers to confiscate both his camera (which looked more expensive than her extensions) and his credentials, which they ripped from his neck with soap-operatic verve. The room applauded, led by Lindsay herself, as she settled into her seat between a shell-shocked-seeming Leigh Lezark — we feel you, Leigh — and Lindsay’s companion, who is either a Johnny Depp superfan or an actual pirate.
It’s not clear whether he was kicked out for stepping on the runway or disturbing the Lohan, although there were enough other photos taken of her at that show to convince me it was the former. Anyway, note to photographers: stop trying to photograph the Lohan. It’s not worth the damage to your equipment and person, and it will only make the Lohan stronger and more aggressive.
