"OMG, Lindsay needs a dress," was the call celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch received at 2:30 on Wednesday afternoon, just a few hours before Lindsay Lohan was slated to show up at the glitzy amfAR bash.

"We were frantically pulling and running everywhere," said Bloch, who originally hails from Seaford. Despite the frenzy, Bloch said Lohan was easy to deal with. "She's no diva, she's really sweet, and really calm amidst all the chaos. And we kind of had this Long Island connection."

Speaking of which, Bloch says that despite published reports, Lohan does not appear to be living back on Long Island with her mom. She told me she's living in SoHo, said Bloch, though she acknowledged that she "has a lot of stuff at her mother's house."

As for her outfit, she wore a hooded fur and a nude Theia dress that Bloch describes as "very '50s, she looked fabulous . . . it was very Ginger from 'Gilligan's Island.' " Island being the theme of the day.
