Lindsay Lohan's white dress sells out online

Look out Kate Middleton: You aren't the only trendsetter capable of affecting the fickle fashion market. Lindsay Lohan's tight white minidress -- the one she wore to her Wednesday arraignment... the one that was deemed "inappropriate" by the blogosphere -- has sold out at online retailers, according to ABC News. And Lohan didn't even need to stand next to a prince.

The "Glavis" dress, by Kimberly Ovitz, retails for $575 and is from the designer's pre-fall collection. It is -- or was -- also available in three other colors. Though Lohan's choice of "albino" was inspired -- only innocent people wear white and it really made her stand out in all the outside-the-courthouse crush pix.

Some are claiming Lohan was paid to wear the dress to give Ovitz some exposure and a nice bump in sales. If so, we just want to remind Lilo to return it promptly if it was a loaner.

The sad part is a lot of those people buying the dress won't look near as good as LiLo. Oh they will BUY the same size, but they aren't the same size, if you get my drift.

Sober TV Host Jane Velez-Mitchell does Impression of Lindsay Lohan Tonight on “The Soup”
Pitching her new book “Addict Nation,” TV host Jane Velez-Mitchell has some fun with The Soup’s Joel McHale…at Lindsay Lohan’s expense.
It’s pretty shocking and hilarious to watch conservative TV host Jane Velez-Mitchell strut around in a skin tight white dress and sun glasses doing her best impression of entitled star Lindsay Lohan. But Jane, a former alcoholic with 15 years sober, thinks that celebrity prescription drug abuse is a very serious matter foreshadowing a national epidemic.

The REALLY sad part is that there are schmucks out there stupid enough to believe that you have to spend $575 on a piece of clothing in order to "look good." This isn't a slam at women. Fashion for both men and women can be just as elegant without the hefty pricetags.

For Lindsay herself, the really sad part is that sooner or later her lifestyle will catch up to her. And when that happens, even the most expensive dress won't hide the results.

I thought the dress was very Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct. I hope somebody ran LiLo through a metal detector to make sure she wasn't carrying an ice pick.

where's luvslinsey when you need him? or her?

I thought the pic was striking when I first saw it, but didn't give it much more thought. Just another trainwreck starlet who still has it together enough to know a photo opportunity when she sees one.

However news that the dress sold out made me look again. Apparently I was not the only who thought her look stood out.

And I think the dress, her look/attitude, married with the angle of the shot, make the whole thing pop. It could almost be a magazine shoot...if it weren't real life.

She looks like a modern Marilyn Monroe. Young, beautiful, clean lines, tragicly flawed. She is dead center of the shot, with darker dressed "official looking" men and women all around her. And all taller than her. She is swimming in a school of suits. (And she looks like she could be going to a wedding. Taking the white into account, she even looks like she could be the bride.)

It's a great shot on many levels. Lindsay herself is mixture of messages, from her confident stride, to her youthful curves and summer blond hair, to her face which finally betrays some hint of her emotions. There is something a little vulnerable about her expression.

Then catching the trooper in soft focus at one side, which is juxtaposed with the camerman at the other, with Lindsay slicing right down the middle.

Her expression, the position of the other players, that's right time-right place stuff. But it was shot and cropped nicely. It tells a story without a caption. And obviously people reacted to it.

I won't be reading any of the other flap about it on other websites, but I'd be interested in reading another celebritology blog/blurb about how Lindsay's Dress-gate plays out.

I think she's being investigated for something too, but I'm not quite sure. What with not reading the captions and all that.

Was LiLo wearing bra or panties under that? Dorkus, Sas, byoolin, TD, anyone?

I think it's a great hooker dress.

HOW CAN A WOMAN SO BEAUTIFUL AND TALENTED BE SO DUMB?

A thief's and thief no matter what she wears. Too bad LL spends so much times thinking about her clothes and hair and so little on decency and honesty.
