Over the weekend my friends and I were having a discussion about Lindsay Lohan, as you do, and we were trying to figure out how many comebacks this 27 year-old has had – not the most intellectual of conversations and to be honest we aren’t sure how we even came to be discussing her but it got me thinking about some of her editorial shoots.
There have been a few that stick in my mind – like the incredible cover she did for ELLE UK in 2009, the Interview cover looking like Elizabeth Taylor in 2006 and who can forget her Playboy cover in 2012. But one of the editorials that really stands out for me has to be her ‘I Need a Hero’ fashion spread for Harper’s Bazaar US captured by Peter Lindbergh for the March 2008 issue.
What I love about this editorial, other than the fact Lindsay actually looks good, has to be the contrast of the wannabe heroes and everyday settings with the high-fashion of her styling – as well as the fun comic book fonts. Who would have thought a Dior slip would be seen in a laundrette alongside Captain America, but I think seeing Lindsay hand-in-hand with Batman while wearing that gorgeous Nina Ricci gown has to be favourite. Seriously why do we not have editorials like this any more?
Do you love Lindsay’s superhero shoot as much as me?
