The latest in celebrity drama through fashion: has Lindsay Lohan picked a fight with the Kardashians, via Balmain?
It’s been an interesting week for Lindsay Lohan social media followers. The actress, who has been spending time in London lately, caused confusion and drew headlines when she took to Twitter to heavily comment on the Brexit vote. Snippets include “workplace fatalities in the UK have reduced by half since European safety directives were introduced in 1996,” and “#REMAIN #PEACE #ONELOVE #FREETRADE.” She summed things up with the post “one thing for sure the #referendum results are very close, but also showing a difference of opinion across #Britain.” By the next morning, after much online mockery, she had removed all Brexit tweets.
Then came the Instagram in question. Aside from a mirror selfie sporting a sparkly dress and thigh high boots, what is going on here?
As always, we turn to the comments section to delve deep into what’s happening. Credit to Lohan for culling such loyal followers throughout the years; one commenter was compelled to write, “who needs Jesus when we have Lindsay Lohan.” Another seemed puzzled by the love, writing, “so much positivity on her comments section.”
But is there a deeper meaning, aside from simple brand loyalty declaration? The post came conveniently mere hours after the Balmain spring 2017 men’s show wrapped in Paris, which was attended by Dwyane Wade, Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis and Ricky Martin. But the brand is perhaps best known to celebrity-following Instagram users as a favorite of the Kardashian posse.
Is there a history of Lohan-Kardashian drama? She was a guest at Kim’s 2011 wedding to Kris Humphries, and just this month stepped out with Kourtney in London, posting a selfie ‘gram of the reunion – all signs point no. But what, then, to make of the Insta?
“Is she throwing shade at the Kardashians?!?! Ballsy,” a flabbergasted individual posted. “Why did she shade Balmain?” pondered another. The reasoning may be unknown, but one thing is certain, as put by another user: “shots fired.”
