She had a window. A moment in time, post-adolescence but pre-total breakdown, when she was wonderful. Rachel Zoe reigned stylist supreme, Paris Hilton was actually interesting and tabloids were really just starting to become our favorite news source. A time when she retained some mystery.
Lindsay Lohan is a veteran. Say what you will, but she has managed to remain in the public eye for over a decade. Girl's got staying power. But now we know too much. During this window of wonderful that she experienced she was the enigmatic clotheshorse who maybe was a lesbian, maybe had a coke problem and maybe took everything that wasn't nailed down home with her from photoshoots. MAYBE.
Here's to you Lilo, we miss you.
