Something Borrowed

During Paris Fashion Week, we reported that Lindsay Lohan, the day before her so-called work at Ungaro was to debut, spent her time shopping at Dior and Yves Saint Laurent, and even presented the bill to Ungaro. Then, after a hard day of retail therapy, she commenced with a wild night and had to cancel an interview with Suzy Menkes.

Now it seems that tarnishing the legacy of an haute fashion house wasn’t enough for the half-baked party girl. Three days ago, before leaving the City of Light and Ungaro in a hot mess of bad reviews, Lindsay dropped in on the Paris showroom of New York/Montreal-based accessories label Arielle de Pinto. Ever-presumptuous, Lindsay wanted to “borrow” several one-of-a-kind samples for an unspecified party and shoot. Arielle’s team made an imprint of her black credit card—just in case. Sure enough, Lindsay just left Paris with the pieces. Can you guess the rest? When the showroom tried to charge the credit card, they were notified it had been canceled.

If you know of other victims of Lindsay Lohan’s swath through Paris, comment below. 

Added Oct. 12, 8:26 pm: While Lindsay is denying (of course) the above on Perez Hilton, we hear that collective blog pressure has forced her to pony up payment to Arielle de Pinto.

Added Oct. 13, 2:30 pm: Meanwhile, other Paris labels were less naive about Miss Grabby Hands. When they heard Lindsay wanted to wear their clothes, because she made it known, both Balmain and Lanvin instructed their staff not to give her freebies, discounts or gratuity of any kind. Thus she paid retail for her respective outfits to the Purple party and Mario Testino’s book launch.
