Lindsay Lohan’s eagerly-anticipated New York pictorial finally made its way to my California mailbox (just as the boyfriend crosses coasts where it will have, to his great disappointment, already left newsstands… sorry, love) and my goodness, it is truly shocking. Number one, I’ve never seen a nipple in the pages of New York, and now here are 5, and they’re Lindsay Lohan’s (with many more to be found online). Number two, if you’re not going to allow the poor girl access to undereye concealer, could you at least have offered her a little Photoshopping? She looks weathered, worn out and way older than her 21 years. And maybe that was the point given Marilyn’s sad state in the original shoot, but still. Number three — and most appalling — the photos are crap! Is this seriously the best “famed Marilyn photographer” Bert Stern could do?? I don’t believe it.
cool stuff abounds. find your way on, off and around the gridI'm a writer and wide-eyed wanderer, culturemonger and experience collector. Born in New York and raised in Colorado, I've also lived in Sydney, France, Martinique and spent various random weeks and months exploring the spaces between. Possibly as a result, I'm not happy unless I'm on a plane twice a month going somewhere to discover something cool. This is where I'll attempt to collect and share some of the things I see in travel, design, retail, music, film, web, food, style. (I admit, focus has never been my strongsuit.) Day jobs have included years at big city branding shops, little town magazines and a stint heading up marketing for an alternative law firm's San Francisco office. I still have a foot in that pretty little city but my heart resides in Manhattan.
My other gigI'm also editrix-in-chief of TheDistillery, a marketing blog focused on media, design, and brands. It's a place where a bunch of stuff goes in and only the good stuff comes out. Drink up. DistilleryMedia.com.
