Lindsay Lohan’s scarcely appeared during Milan fashion week—no big shock, considering the drubbing the fashion press gave her Ungaro collection—but she did make it to Roberto Cavalli’s show and, of course, after-party last night. In her Cavalli sequined harem pants and Dolce & Gabbana fur vest, Lohan feels a bit like a blast from the (recent) past. It’s hard to object to her outfit, but it’s also hard to get excited by it—especially given that she’s likely got her pick of the new runways. Lindsay’s had her up and downs, but we’d say she can do better. What say you?

Louis Vuitton’s “Icons” campaign soldiers on, and the latest star is one who usually finds herself behind the camera: Annie Leibovitz. Apparently, she used her fee to hire another celeb to co-star with her, Mikhail Baryshnikov. No offense, Annie, but do you maybe have a better use for that check? [WWD]
The ladies at Jezebel line up Demi Moore’s Photoshopped fragrance ad with one of hubby Ashton’s twitpics to come to the following conclusion: Demi’s gorgeous; Photoshop’s bad. We’d say stop the presses but, y’know, we don’t have any. [Jezebel]

Many a street-wear trend has made it to the runway—military jackets, slashed jeans, sweatpants. But somehow the idea of visible boxer-brief waistbands over low-slung pants is one that’s never really been embraced. Go figure. That is, until Roberto Cavalli’s softly pretty, vintage-inspired show earlier today, where the designer showed loose-waisted palazzo pants with pretty floral underpants that had fine elastic edging peeping overtop. It’s certainly a new way to do the old underwear-as-outerwear thing. And now it seems that Ms. Prada has some company in the Milan chapter of the I Like Knickers fan club.
On the other hand…the future of skinny jeans for men looks bright. The Gap, Levi’s, and True Religion are all amping up their slim-denim efforts. As one client puts it, “Discomfort comes with the territory.” So true. [WSJ]
Start your week out with some bons mots from Roberto Cavalli. For example, “I never pay attention to costs—it’s not attractive to speak about numbers.” He and his financial adviser must get along smashingly. [Times Online]
Meg White became Karen Elson’s new sister-in-law and Patti Smith’s new daughter-in-law at a double wedding in Jack White’s backyard in Nashville on Friday. Jack’s relation to the bride is still unclear. [HuffPo]
Roberto Cavalli is having second thoughts about selling a portion of his company and is planning instead on lowering prices and handing out Just Cavalli “gadgets” to girls outside discothèques. Ooh, like a leopard-print walkie-talkie? [WWD]
Affected by the credit crunch, rappers are turning to cubic zirconium to amp up their bling. As one downsizing lyricist put it, “You can’t be doing it like we did it no more.” Indeed. [WSJ]
