Lindsay Lohan: I Want Fashion Collection To 'Pay Respect To My Icon, Marilyn Monroe'

Lindsay Lohan wrote a piece for BlackBook on her personal style, explaining that she cuts up her designer duds in order to make them her own and that she gets inspiration from being able to travel the world. She also discussed about her current fashion project, her 6126 line and her style icon:

My fashion line, 6126, salutes modern women who understand that sophistication is always in vogue. Inspired by the iconic Marilyn Monroe and the timeless, confident glamour her memory represents, 6126 is named after her birth date. The confidence and sophistication Monroe exuded is something we don't see today. It has been a dream come true to be so involved and hands-on in creating something I am so passionate about. When I designed the 6126 collection, I wanted to make pieces that any woman can mix and match to create her own sense of style--for example, mixing our sequin shorts with combat boots.

Lohan tried on every piece to ensure that it spoke to her vision and paid "respect to my icon, Marilyn Monroe." 6126 isn't the actress's first foray into the fashion world. She previously served as Artistic Adviser at Ungaro, designing a collection of hearts and pasties. She separated from the company in March.
