Lindsay Lohan ‘causes riot’ at fashion showLindsay Lohan “nearly caused a riot” at a New York Fashion Week show over the weekend.

The Hollywood actress caused a stir amongst fashion followers at Cynthia Rowley’s presentation on Friday night.

According to New York Magazine’s fashion bloggers The Fug Girls at The Cut, there was nearly a “riot” when the style-conscious crowd realised who she was.

“The entire room full of journalists sat ramrod straight and let out excited, disbelieving, four-letter expletives as we all realised this was actually Lindsay Freaking Lohan,” they wrote on the blog.

Lindsay was reportedly mistaken for fashion designer Donatella Versace by the bloggers. However, the star caused a wave of attention when people realised who she was.

“The take-home here for Lindsay should be that we all initially mistook her for somebody much crispier who is thirty years her senior, but we suspect instead she will mentally gloss over that part and focus only on how fast the crowd of blasé, already-burned-out fashionistas whipped out their smartphones and overloaded AT&T service,” the bloggers continued.

Lindsay, 25, was wearing shorts and a flowing white top as she attended the show. She was escorted to her front row seat by several security guards.

According to The Cut, one photographer became a little over-zealous when he spotted Lindsay. He went out on the runway to get a closer picture of the star before organisers at the event confiscated his camera and credentials.

“The room applauded, led by Lindsay herself,” the website revealed. © COVER MEDIA
