Lindsay Lohan has a job as a model for designer Philipp Plein. It comes at a time when the starlet has been seen with hotelier Vikram Chatwal. The actress was revealed as “the new face of the brand” at a press conference during Milan Fashion Week.
After going to school to study law, Plein’s interest was peaked by visiting several art and cultural museums. He began as a designer in 1998 designing furniture for family and friends. In 2004 he designed a street collection and opened his first shop in Munich.
“Lindsay is a beautiful, highly acclaimed actress and model. We will be able to create unique images: Refined and luxurious, but also full of sensuality,” he said.
Vikram Chatwal, who is separated from his model wife but still close to her and their daughter, has been seen with Lohan, but we’re not sure if he had anything to do with Plein.
Lindsay actually got a start in campaigns as a child before becoming a Disney star. The highly acclaimed actress had been in ads for Calvin Klein and Abercrombie and Fitch, as well as in over 1,000 television commercials by the age of 10.
Lohan was busy partying a couple of weeks at New York Fashion Week. Her time in the city was far different than Milan Fashion Week. She was defending her sister, Ali, whose recent photos have sparked plastic allegations and she was booted from one of the event parties. However, unlike New York, Philipp invited Lohan with open arms.
The designer does not shy away from controversial celebrities. In 2010, the company hired starlet Mischa Barton for an ad campaign. Her show had just been canceled and she had drug problem. Plein took a chance and revealed, “Being in the limelight for a young and beautiful girl, the looks of course always get a lot of attention, Mischa Barton got a lot and learned to live with her fame. For me it was the big challenge to again show her as a diva, a rock n roll Goddess.”
During the photo shoot, Philipp was seen with Lohan on the set to give her direction and even walked with her hand in hand.
