Lindsay Lohan given glowing probation report

By Andrea Petrou on December 15th, 2011

Lindsay Lohan was given a glowing probation report during her court hearing yesterday.

The ‘Mean Girls’ actress – who has been working at the Los Angeles County Morgue as part of her sentence for breaking her probation in relation to a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) case – was praised by Judge Stephanie Sautner for the way she has behaved and got on with her court-ordered work.

When discussing Lindsay’s community service hours, Sautner praised the 25-year-old star for having “done it not only on time, but early. You did the 12 days and you completed it early”.

She then told Lindsay, who returned to Los Angeles after holidaying in Hawaii: “You’re doing well. I’d like to see it continue.

“Do more days a month and then we can end this in February, possibly.”

Lindsay must complete another 12 days of duty at the morgue and three therapy sessions by her next court date on January 17 2012.

The judge also gave Lindsay permission to leave the state of California if she completes her 12 days of duty early.

She said: “Any month you’ve completed 12 days early, you can travel,” she said. “For pleasure, for any purpose…to go to a spa, whatever she wants to do. Whatever anyone else is allowed to do.”

Lindsay Lohan’s nude Playboy shoot was inspired by Marilyn Monroe

By Andrea Petrou on November 8th, 2011

Lindsay Lohan’s nude Playboy shoot was inspired by Marilyn Monroe.

The troubled actress – who was released from jail yesterday after serving just four-and-a half hours of a 30-day sentence – has posed naked for the iconic men’s magazine and its founder Hugh Hefner says it pays homage to her idol – who died in August 1962 aged 36 from a suspected drugs overdose.

He told ‘The Insider': “It’s a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which was the original playmate in the very first issue of Playboy.”

Hugh also confirmed Lindsay, 25, bared all for the shoot but it was done in a “classy” way.

He said: “Oh, yes, she’s naked. And classy, very classy.”

The ‘Mean Girls’ star was paid almost $1 million to strip off for the publication, but she is due to re-shoot some photos later this week.

Lindsay was initially offered $750,000 by Playboy, but turned it down until she was given a higher price.

Previous stars who have posed for the magazine include Pamela Anderson, La Toya Jackson and Drew Barrymore.

Lindsay Lohan checks into jail

By Andrea Petrou on November 7th, 2011

Lindsay Lohan has checked into jail.

The troubled actress – who was sentenced to 300 days in jail last week after admitting she had violated the terms of her probation in relation to a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) case but will only spend 30 days behind bars – arrived at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California at 8.48pm PST last night to begin serving her sentence, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department website states.

However, the 25-year-old star is expected to be released within hours of her arrival due to jail overcrowding.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore has said Lindsay may have to spend time in jail overnight if there are several other inmates checking out at the same time.

Lindsay admitted last week she had violated her probation by failing to show up at community service appointments at a women’s shelter in Los Angeles.

Superior Court Judge Stephanie Saunter told Lindsay – who attended the Los Angeles Superior Court Airport branch in a navy polka dot dress and Giuseppe Zanotti high heels -she will now have to perform all of her community service at a morgue and complete 19 psycho-therapy sessions by March 29, 2012.

If she completes them all, her probation will be over and the rest of the sentence will be stayed indefinitely.

If she fails to do so, she will have to serve the remainder of the 270 days of her sentence.

In an unusual twist, the judge also banned Lindsay from using social networking site twitter while working at the morgue.

The sentence is the ‘Mean Girls’ actress’ fifth since she was arrested twice for drunk driving in 2007, and earlier this year she served 35 days under house arrest.

Lindsay Lohan to pose nude for Playboy magazine

By Andrea Petrou on October 25th, 2011

Lindsay Lohan is to pose naked for Playboy magazine.

The troubled actress – who was last week told she had to clean morgues for 16 hours a week as part of a court order until a probation hearing on November 2 – will reportedly earn almost $1 million for baring all in the adult magazine.

According to, the 25-year-old star originally turned down a $750,000 offer from Playboy boss Hugh Hefner to pose nude, demanding that the figure should be closer to $1 million.

It is believed the shoot started over the weekend, with Lindsay – who could face up to 18 months in prison if she is found guilty of violating the terms of her probation for a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) conviction – having to fit it in around her court-ordered morgue duties.

However, this isn’t the first time the star has posed naked.

In 2008, the ‘Mean Girls’ actress stripped off to recreate the infamous ‘Last Sitting’ shots of Marilyn Monroe, taken by photographer Bert Stern just six weeks before she died of a drugs overdose, with Lindsay admitting at the time she was “comfortable” with nudity.

She said: “I didn’t have to put much thought into it. Working with Bert Stern on a Marilyn Monroe shoot was really an honour. When is that ever going to come up again?

“I wanted to portray the look and get it point-on as much as I could, to bring it back to life. I was comfortable with it, the nudity and everything.”

A/W Trends: Super sleek straight hair

By Shiny writer on July 21st, 2010

ShinyStylers I’m back and refreshed from my hols and ready to take the fashion reigns back from Emily who did a fantastic job while I was off sunning myself (ok, ok I won’t rub it in).

However, while I’ve been showing off my holiday naturally curly locks and priding myself on not suffering from GHD withdrawls for two weeks, it seems I may have to be getting them right back out again. Why? Because it seems the autumn hair trend is all about sleek and straight, blowing out the boho curly look we’ve been seeing all summer.

Carolina Herrera and Hermes literally sent their models straight down the A/W 2010 catwalks with sleek, poker straight locks, while, according to Elle, Catwalk by Tigi are also launching a hair range later this year called Sleek Mystique and judging by the sounds of this, it doesn’t look like curls are very welcome.

And celebrities are already starting to display this new trend, opting for ironed out locks instead of messy up dos and sleek curls at premiers. One example includes Naomi Watts who turned up earlier this week for the premiere Salt sporting sleek straight hair. However she’s not the only one. Celebrities including Avril Lavigne, Rachel Bilson and even Lindsay Lohan, who sported the super straight look on the first day of her 90 day jail stint.

View our gallery to see how you should be wearing your hair this Autumn. Oh, and those of you, who like me, suffer from frizztastic barnets in misty weather may also want to consider a hat or big umbrella to keep those curls at bay.
