Muse is not a magazine frequently mentioned in the likes of Page Six. A regular in the Cut's monthly editorial roundups, it routinely produces some of the most noteworthy and a-muse-ing fashion photography. The last issue, devoted to Natasha Poly, wouldn't have made the Post look twice; however, the new issue out tomorrow is a tabloid editor's dream. Lindsay Lohan landed not only the cover but eighteen pages inside the magazine for a spread inspired by Johnny Depp and Kate Moss's relationship, shot by Yu Tsai. Except Tsai captured not just Lindsay and her Johnny Depp, played by male model Petey Wright, but also threw dancer Sofia Boutella into bed with them. Threesomes and orgies are so happening nowadays.
Tsai speaks in detail about the shoot in Page Six:
"The three of them were very sensual and provocative, but Lindsay understands this piece was created not for any sensational value other than artistic integrity," Tsai said. "There was never a discussion about pushing the boundaries. She was totally comfortable with the nudity as long as it had artistic integrity.
"When you see her nipple, it just happened in the moment. She was playing the role of Kate Moss — you're at a party and you are with a guy you really love and another girl."
Sure, Lindsay's nipples will result in magazine sales — but will this issue spawn others like it and propel our favorite arty fashion magazines into the world of celebrity covers? The best part of those magazines are the models and cultural figures you don't often (if ever) see in books like Vogue or Harper's Bazaar, shot in some totally crazy way.
If her Twitter is accurate, Lohan should also appear in the next issue of Purple with her sister, shot by Terry Richardson. From her Hedi Slimane shoot to her Ungaro appointment, she pretty quickly solidified her position as the fashion industry's most famous muse, no pun intended (for once). How did they become the only ones who would so willingly hire her? Perhaps there is no better place for an iconic party girl.
