So Lindsay Lohan's leggings are finally on shopintuition.com. And they are dreadful.
Leopard print, side zippers (alright, they were cute when LnA did them) and knee pads are some of the styles you can purchase for about $100 a pop.
The ones with knee pads are called Mr. President, in reference to Marilyn Monroe. Knee pads? Is it more sexist of me to assume there are ridiculously sexual overtones to these or more degrading towards women to design such a pair?
I don't know, it just makes me feel gross. I guess it's supposed to be cheeky, but it reminds me of ultimate female subservience: not reciprocal sex, just female submission.
Perhaps I'm just uptight, or maybe my mind is excessively dirty. I'm sure if Yohji Yamamoto or any other "form over function" type of designer had made these, I wouldn't be so offended. But Lohan's not necessarily revered as the classiest or most avant garde person.
What do you think?
