Lindsay Lohan is the new face of Louis Vuitton

March 15th, 2006 // 46 Comments

*lindsay_lohan_vuitton_3.jpgLindsay Lohan is set to replace Gisele Bundchen as the next face of Louis Vuitton. The label’s head designer Marc Jacobs is said to have asked her to pose for its Fall/Winter 2006-07 collection. Some feel at only 19 years of age Lohan is not sophisticated enough to represent the prestige fashion house. Jacobs stated that he wants his next ads to be young and “cartoony”.

Cartoony, huh? Well I think having Yosemite Sam here hawk Louis Vuitton merchandise is a brilliant idea. Almost as brilliant as having Al Sharpton speak at the next Klan rally.

    Lindsay rocks!

    Since when did LL become the height of couture? Louis Vuitton, Badgley Mischka…and she always looks like she got dressed at Wal-Mart.

  3. Binky

    Hummm…when did Screech from ‘Saved by the Bell’ take over Louis Vuitton ?

  4. Diana

    Oh well that’s fucking great!!! I spend a bijillion dollars getting a small Louis Vuitton collection and it will soon be worthless. Thanks a lot Lindsay, you stupid drunk coke whore. Can I change your mind if I send you a cheeseburger? Eat something.

  5. mamacita

    Uh what? Now, I think Lindsay was very attractive in her more busty and redhaired days, but now, eh not so much. And she’s replacing Gisele Bundchen? That gets a big ole WTF? from me.

  6. It’s a brilliant match. She’s looking just as leathery and haggard as the LV clientele who trawl the Upper East Side. Brava!

  7. Xanthia

    Maybe they saw her back and decided that she looked like a piece of dried leather so she should be the model for the new luggage line……….. well, that’s all I can figure.

    Problem: if LL is the new face of LV, I’m afraid that we will soon see KFED as the new face of some other designer line – it seems to fit about as well.

  8. manunited

    Vuitton is as out as Lohan is. Perfect match! I can’t believe people still buy that ugly ass collection… especially the cheap knock-offs you can get in Chinatown.
    gross.

  9. CoJo

    #4, I think you may have a better chance wooing Lindsay out of this decision with some ex-lax or a colon cleansing treatment…you know how those skinny girls love their ex-lax!

  10. gizmohead

    Its obvious what happened here guys, she slept with the creator, turned him strait, and got a “thank you”.

  11. staticbumblebee

    Lindsay replaced Gisele? I agree with #8… screw them.

  12. Mary45

    #10 – we are along the same thought pattern except I thought they might have shared the crack pipe together!

  13. tits_on_snack

    I also agree with #8, but then again, I’ve always thought every brand of trendy expensive monogrammed handbag was ugly as sin. They are all ugly! I don’t understand why people would pay that much money for something that looks so chunky and horrible and covered in a print of somebody’s initials, just because it’s a status symbol.
    “Mugatu is so rich he could take a crap, wrap it in tinfoil, put a couple fish hooks on it and sell ‘em to Queen Elizabeth as earrings”… that’s how i feel about trendy handbags.

  14. TaiTai

    Of course, it’s perfect! Louis Vuitton was looking for Olive Oyl.

  15. Becca

    I whole-heartedly agree with #13! I mean c’mon, they line their purses with goat’s skin. I’m no PETA member, but it just sounds nasty.

  16. blueballs

    It’s the bag of choice for coke head, no talent, skank hollywood celebs.

  17. hafaball

    It’s called picking a name out of a hat. And since Lohan seems to be changing her appearence weekly, she could be interesting…they could have a poll, which Lohan will appear next week, the sickly one, the coke party girl one, or the giant breasted red-head one.

  18. bananachange

    #8, my thoughts exactly.

  19. Do Louis Vuitton bags have hidden compartments that can fool drug dogs at the airport and a waterproof interior in case your vodka bottle breaks during the flight? Oh, they DO?? Well then yeah, Lindsey’s your girl.

  20. LoneWolf

    If they wanted “cartoony” they should have chosen Jessica Rabbit. She’s not only hotter than LL, she’s more credible and better liked. Only the other hand, Linday’s more of a cartoon.

    In a related story, Britney Spears has been named the new face of Red Man Chewing Tobacco. They said that they wanted someone who used the product regularly, although they’ve discovered that she’s so used to swallowing that she’s having to learn how to spit.

  21. Tania

    Mamacita (#5) I totally agree with you! Old school Lindsay was hot.

    Most designer bags are FUGLY for sure. Dooney and Bourke (which Lindsay plugged for a while) are freakin’ hideous! Can anyone on here honestly say that they think this is bag is cute and they would pay $300+ for it for any reason other than the brand name?

    UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    Hear that? That is the sound of Louis Vuitton stock plummeting.

  23. manunited

    #21: That bag totally needs to read “I think Boys are Dumb & Cute”. I mean, do they think adults & non-Paris Hilton wannabe’s would seriously spend money, let alone more than $5, on something you had as a “pretend dress-up” bag from Marshall’s when you were 5? Christ Almighty!!

  24. ms.vreeland

    no wonder she had to put on a dramatic shopaholic act in the nyc lv flagship store earlier this week; shoved out all other ordinary customers so the queen bee could shop exclusively for 4hrs -p.s the store closed early that day, can’t be bothered to serve mere peasantry since the star covered their sales alone

  25. senin

    Marc must be snorting coke with her…
    This is total suicide for the brand. Who wants to carry a bag that a coke whore, an ugly coke ho at that, endorses? I guess it’s back to Dior or Bottega Veneta…

  26. missscoobie

    Just keep the bitch away from Prada.
    laugh my ASS of at the britney spit/swallow comment.

  27. gizmohead

    I wonder who she banged to get this gig?????

  28. Awww. come on, it wouldn’t hurt to use an attractive pic of Hohan every once in a while.

  29. Caroline

    While this is surprising, it really isn’t. Fashion is comprised of skinny crack whores. They just got the one with the least class.

  30. Tink

    I think everyone in the business knows with all her partying, drug abuse, eating disorders, and the pesky “asthma attacks” She’ll be dead by age 21– so then having her in their campiagns will help sales, now and later

  31. HughJorganthethird

    What the Face of Bulumia job was allready taken? What about the Face of Coke or the Face of Stupidity? She’s a natural that Hohan.

  32. HughJorganthethird

    What the Face of Bulumia job was already taken? What about the Face of Coke or the Face of Stupidity? She’s a natural that Hohan.

    That’s because LV knows that many female teenagers would love to get their hands on the LV bags and surprisingly, young generation have a hugh purchasing power for luxurious items these days. So what if they want to buy a bag to carry their digital-camera-video-mp3 player-satellite tv cellular phone? Lindsay is exactly the right representative that appeal to shallow younger crowd. It’s all about marketing ploy. LV doesn’t give a rat ass what you have to do to be able to afford that speedy monogram. There ain’t going to be supply if there’s no demand.

  34. gogoboots

    Not it that picture she’s not…sophistacated that is. Unless Vuitton is into the starved coked out look, that he’s picked the perfect person. Other than that, she’s fairly vapid and deadly dull as a model.

  35. kittenface

    They might as well start selling LV in Claire’s if this is avenue they’re going down.

  36. seminole

    seems to me that strung-out drunken whores with eating disorders have never had a very hard time finding modeling work.

  37. always answer b

    #33 hit the nail directly on the head.
    The older crowd isn’t buying LV; they’re buying designer bags higher up the food chain. The reason that LV is to ubiquitous is because it’s at the lower end of the designer market and it’s more affordable to all of the young status-conscious teenagers who know that just as long as they’re carrying some kind of designer bag that everyone else seems to have, they look stylish. Well.. what I should say is that it’s more affordable to their parents, since the trophy moms wouldn’t want their daughters to have nicer bags than they do.

  39. I hear that LV is following Todd Oldham’s lead and will be available at Target.

    “Lindsay Lohan’s face LOOKS like a Louis Vuitton bag” is a more appropriate headline…

  41. miadm2002

    Who did she screw to become a celebrity?!

  42. Moksha

    What a sack, she didn’t even brush her scummy teeth.

  43. Paris_tampon

    I wonder if there will be any ads involving her licking between her “V’d” fingers.

    She just oozes class and sophistication.

  44. Aimlessway

    If she can rock it, then she can rock it. For now, we can’t say much.

  45. Did Louis Vuitton actually come out and NAME her the spokesmodel yet? Because if they didn’t, you can’t be too sure that its true. Let’s not forget that embarrassing episode with Chanel…

  46. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    when I saw this I start laughing!
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
