The itty bitty number that Lindsay wore when being charged with felony grand theft is becoming the hottest item in stores!
The dress heard ’round the world earlier this week is actually becoming a must-have item! Lindsay Lohan opted for a skin-tight, mid-thigh Kimberly Ovitz dress instead of a more conservative look when appearing in court on Feb. 9 to be charged with felony grand theft. Even though it incited disgust in some onlookers, it’s selling out everywhere!
ABC.com reports that the dress which retails for $575 is “selling out at online stores that carry it.”
Lindsay ended up tweeting [which has since been deleted] her surprise about the dress becoming news: “I would never steal, in case people are wondering. I was not raised to lie, cheat, or steal. … also, what I wear to court shouldnt be front page news. it’s just absurd.”
The New York Post, spoke with Ovitz’s NYC offices, and they say their phones have been ringing off the hook, and they are reconsidering a “second manufacturing of the style.”
“It’s been a frenzy!” a sales associate said. “We saw it on the cover. We know, definitely, that people want that dress again because of Lindsay.”
If you have been looking for the dress, you still might be able to find it at stores like Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Intermix and Shopbop.
HollywoodLife.com spoke to The Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon, who revealed that she was appalled by Lindsay’s outfit choice.
“Lindsay dressed completely and utterly inappropriately,” Kelly told us. “You should dress like you are going to a funeral, not a club.”
We also spoke to Robin Sax, a Criminal Lawyer and Former LA Deputy DA/Prosecutor, who completely agrees with Kelly, that Lindsay’s outfit was not a smart choice for court.
“I think that she was absolutely inappropriately dressed for court,” Robin said. “There’s kind of a piece of sentimental witness advice that lawyers give to their clients — wear what you would wear to church or a job interview!”
A jewelry store in Venice Beach, Calif., is accusing Lindsay of stealing a $2,500 necklace and after appearing before Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz, Lindsay posted a $40,000 bail.
“You now have a pending felony case,” Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz said. “If you violate the law, I will remand you and set no bail. Your attorney won’t be successful this time.”
Lindsay is expected back in court on Feb. 23.
