If Lindsay Lohan knows anything, it’s car insurance claims. The troubled starlet has had more than a few vehicular bust-ups, and now she’s turning her experiences into cold, hard cash. Esurance has tapped Lindsay to star in a spot for the company.

Sources say that the commercial is shooting in Long Beach. Lindsay’s history of car troubles includes allegedly hitting a man outside the Dream Hotel in 2012, hitting a driver at The Ivy in 2005, a DUI in 2007 when she drove into a tree, allegedly hit a baby stroller in 2010 and a few other incidents.

TMZ speculates that the ads could even be ready in time for the Super Bowl, giving us exactly one reason to watch the show in the first place.

New York Attorney General to Probe Saks’ Anti-Discrimination Policies

Saks wades deeper into trouble over the lawsuit a former employee brought against the retailer, claiming she was fired from her position at one of the store’s Texas locations because she’s a trans woman. Saks is looking to dismiss the suit based on a claim that transgendered people are not protected under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits employers from discriminating against workers based on sex, religion, nationality, etc. Several courts, the Department of Justice and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission consider trans people to be included under that particular law. 

New York’s attorney general is going to conduct a deeper investigation of Saks’ policies, ordering the retailer to turn over paperwork regarding its anti-discrimination policies and procedures in handling claims made by employees. Last week, Saks doubled down on its position that transgendered employees are not covered under the Civil Rights Act, all the while reassuring the public that it does not discriminate against the LGBT community. Funny way of showing it.

We’re hoping this probe doesn’t bring us more bad news about Saks, but it’s clear that the retailer should start rethinking its policies regarding transgendered employees if it wants to avoid future troubles.

With the recent departure of creative director Frida Giannini, Gucci is scrambling to make some last-minute changes to its menswear collection, showing today in Milan. WWD reports that the label is making major modifications to its show, not only in the design, but also in the casting and the setup of the runway at the venue. 

Gucci’s head accessories designer Alessandro Michele is stepping in to lead the team, which is reportedly responding well to his direction. A source tells WWD, “It’s as far from the former Gucci as possible. Very young, and a clean break with the past.” We wonder whether the women’s collection due to show in a few weeks will get the same overhaul. 

We’ll definitely be taking a close look at Gucci’s latest.

There’s nothing but love for the campaign inside the thread. “Interesting, a risk, innovative (in an age of look-alike ad campaigns). The brand has gotten saccharine sweet, it’s nice to see them drift toward the dark side,” complimented HeatherAnne.

“This looks really interesting and quite fresh!” added Nepenthes.

“Gorgeous! Easily the most interesting and exciting image I’ve seen in this dire campaign season. Possibly Vanessa Moody’s best shot so far, Hedvig looks good too…any chance we’ll see Aya Jones please? Not familiar with the photographer, must go and check him out!” Fiercification noted.

Also full of admiration was DutchHomme: “My favorite campaign of this season! Beautiful, interesting & spooky at the same time.”

Wolkfolk agreed and commented, “I never expected something like that from Valentino. There’s a certain Virgin Suicides feeling. It’s definitely one of the most captivating campaigns released so far. If not the most captivating.”

“Captivating and innovating are the words. I was bored by their latest campaigns but this one is looking so intriguing. Colors are incredibly beautiful. Can’t wait to see more!” shared an optimistic Valentine27.

Watch: This Throwback Video of Destiny’s Child Is Everything

For most of us, our teenage years were quite awkward. For Beyoncé Knowles? Well, let’s just say she had quite a different experience. A music video from the singer’s Destiny’s Child days has surfaced, one in which she is believed to be around 15 years old.

Bey and her cohorts are featured on a track by Lil’ O circa 1997 and if the video proves anything, it’s that even before she was allowed to wield a driver’s license, Beyoncé was totally aspirational and always had perfect hair. Joined by Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett, the foursome sing the hook on Lil’ O’s “Can’t Stop.”

It’s a blast from the past and is really making us rethink everything right now. Seriously, how is Bey and crew so poised and perfect? And how do they make such unfortunate throwback costumes look so cool? Sorcery, we tell you, it’s sorcery.

Watch Destiny’s Child do its thing in the video above.

We’re Digging Nadja Auermann on Vogue Ukraine’s February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Who says February covers have to be light and airy? Vogue Ukraine gives us something different for its latest issue and we admire the mag for it. Photographed by Arcin Sagdic, Nadja Auermann (who was just on the cover of Vogue Germany) poses in a dark environment wearing a black swimsuit with some red and pink lights overhead, making for an intriguing cover image. We’re loving Nadja’s hair styled into a shoulder-length blunt cut with a sweep of fringe — so 90s!

Forum members were quick to voice their opinions once the cover surfaced. “I really like it, something about it feels very Vogue Italia! Always a pleasure to see Nadja!” enthused Nepenthes.

“Lovely! Very Vogue Italia!! And the lighting reminds me of VI’s November issue!” responded MON.

In agreement was khyrk, who wrote, “Wow amazing! Now this is how Vogue Russia should be looking like.”

“I love it! Surprisingly so! That cover has a bit of an edge to it. I’m digging it!” fashionlover2001 complimented.

But not everyone was feeling it. “How can magazines manage to mess up covers when they have amazing models to work with? This cover is just awful! My excitement after seeing the thread title is completely gone… I am annoyed!” ranted KissMiss.

“What’s going on with her legs?” questioned inwhiterooms.

An overall positive response for Vogue Ukraine this month! Should the other editions of Vogue be taking note? Share your opinion inside the thread here.
