As a reporter covering events, I often spend a lot of time simply waiting for celebrities to arrive.

Last night's Versace-sponsored Whitney Studio Party was no exception. After the likes of Alexa Chung, Chanel Iman and Nicole Trunfio had done their step and repeat due diligence, a packed cluster of photographers and press waited and waited and waited some more for Lindsay Lohan. As the time ticked by, I watched the press pit on the red carpet slowly empty out as reporters either gave up hope or moved around to stretch their legs. When Lohan finally showed up, around 10:40 p.m. for a 9 p.m. start time, the currently blonde-tressed actress cum fashion creative director was unusually loquacious.

WWD: Who are some of your favorite artists?

Lindsay Lohan: I love Damien Hirst.

WWD: Aside from acting, do you do any other kind of art?
L.L.: I paint.

WWD: What kinds of things do you paint?
L.L.: It depends on what I'm thinking at any given moment.

WWD: Well, what was the last thing you painted?
L.L.: The last thing I painted was completely red, it was a canvas and it was red and then I painted over it in black to make it purple and then I added a blue box in the middle. It was about life and death and living and dying.

WWD: Wow. Umm, so what else are you up to this week?
L.L.: I was supposed to go to Russia tomorrow to open Russian Fashion Week, but it fell through. But it's okay, because my little brother was yelling at me that I wouldn't be making it to his soccer game tomorrow. I love New York. I spent three hours at Fendi today after spending two hours at Versace.
