Muse is an artsy fancy magazine based in Milan. Far from being celebrity – focused, Muse magazine’s 20th cover is held by tabloids girl extraordinaire, Lindsay Lohan.
With an improbably surprising title “Lindsay Exposed”, the Muse pictorial is supposed to recreate Kate Moss and Johnny Depp back in their four years relationship, in the mid/late 90s (Johnny is impersonated by Petey Wright, a young male model). (the story continues right after the jump with more images, click here to see the gallery)
I wish I could be artistically pleased by the aesthetics of this pictorial. I wish I could be at least morally provoked by the postures Lindsay is photographed in. I’m not. I think Lindsay is a professional model. A professional scandal model. She’s doing this better than anyone. (before and after her; as a matter of fact, I’m beginning to see authentic similarities between her and Marilyn. Rarely has anyone as irrelevant caused so much stir, controversy and more irrelevance. Yet, everyone’s talking about Lindsay. Whether it’s supposedly about her “fashion” career or any other path she’s taking, Lindsay wasn’t born with the silver spoon, she was born with the spot light in her DNA! Reminds me of Anna Nicole Smith…)
However, to state the facts clear as daylight, this is how Lindsay’s Muse photoshoot was supposed to look like! (Kate and Johnny Depp, 1994, Annie Leibowitz) Which is simply beyond words and any artistic ego excuse. Lindsay has finally managed to trash up any valuable trace from the original Kate Moss – intention ahem imitation.
Is it just me, or since she lost all that weight, Lindsay has suddenly become more and more courted by fashion (and magazines)? (photos via)
