Lindsay Lohan Shopping

Lindsay Lohan shopping in LA: Oftentimes it's not what's on the racks in the store, but whose racks are in the store. Nothing sells the contents of a store better than someone buying its contents. The semiotics of fashion sales involves the following equation: Princess + mad search through store + a hundred maids in waiting + a thousand court photographers + credit cards + the desire to be where you're not + a stage upon which to be where you're not = Visibility (Sales). Paparazzi took this photo from just outside the store and offered it up on a hundred websites; the "browser" as Store Front Window.
