Report: Lohan ruins borrowed designer gown
Lindsay Lohan returned a borrowed designer dress in ruined condition after wearing it to a charity event, according to published reports.
Phillip Bloch, the celebrity stylist who dressed Lohan for the event, confirmed to Newsday there was an incident involving the gown. "The dress situation is being handled," he said Wednesday. "Personally, I'm disappointed because I really enjoyed working with her."
Us Weekly reported Wednesday that the "Liz & Dick" star had worn the beaded, floor-length gown -- designed by Don O'Neill for the label Theia -- to the amfAR New York Gala on Feb. 6 as part of Fashion Week.
When she eventually returned the dress, the magazine said, it had been cut to half its original length after Lohan ripped the dress while at a nightclub following the fundraiser, and possibly then trimmed it using scissors.
The dress, valued at $1,750, had been borrowed on her behalf by actor Charlie Sheen, according to Us, which said he personally called Bloch to outfit Lohan for the amfAR event.
Sheen and Lohan had become friendly when they shot "Scary Movie 5" together in September, and late last year the actor reportedly loaned or offered to loan Lohan $100,000 to help pay off a delinquent tax debt.
Sheen, in addition, had said he would split the cost of the gown with Lohan if the actress wanted to buy it, according to Us, but she declined the offer and borrowed the dress.
