Lindsay Lohan was back in court yesterday for a progress hearing that saw her being escorted out in handcuffs and taken into custody for violating probation. She arrived at the LA courtroom wearing an 'I am innocent' outfit consisting of a Fifties-style Fendi frock, Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe heels and a Chanel bag with her trademark bleach blonde hair pulled into a modest ponytail. We've never seen her look so glam!
Not so glam was her face. Seriously Linds, what HAVE you been doing with that blusher brush?! Granted, the actress-slash-designer isn't known for her subtle style statements in the courtroom - who could forget her infamous 'contempt of court' manicure? But this time, LiLo went heavy handed with the shading, slapping a browny-grey stripe across her cheekbones. Paired with smudey eyeshadow and that wide-eyed stare, it’s the stuff of horror movies, no? Hmm, we think SOMEONE needs to watch Grazia’s How To video on artful contouring, like now.
So how to explain the makeup mishap? Is Lindsay appealing to the judge by looking tragically emaciated? Does dressing like a theatrical jail bird straight off Broadway help her case? (we recommend a Velma Kelly black bob next time). Or is it just the latest step in Lindsay's transformation into Courtney Love? Oh, so many questions!
Or perhaps it’s none of the above and the 25-year-old is simply following the latest beauty trend. At the Spring / Summer 2012 shows, we spotted streak-tacular cheekbones at Jeremy Scott and Jaeger while the faces at Vivienne Westwood looked positively bruised with bright pink tones.
So do you reckon OTT blusher is a trend that’s going to take off? Will YOU be giving it a try? C’mon, we want to hear your umm, verdict.
