Lindsay Lohan has swapped her orange prison jumpsuit for a more stylish role as a fashion reporter – the troubled actress has written a guest column for hip arts publication BlackBook magazine.

The Mean Girls star was jailed last month for violating her probation relating to a 2007 DUI arrest and after two weeks behind bars, she went straight to court-ordered rehab.

She was discharged this week and her release coincides with the publication of a fashion piece she has written for BlackBook, in which she talks about setting up her 6126 label and her love of shopping.

Lohan writes, “Fashion to me is an art of expression. It’s all about individual style, embracing who you are, and feeling good about what you wear… I’ve been known to take scissors to some of my favorite Balenciaga and Gucci designs to make them my own – cutting the collar to make a wider neck or shortening a dress…

“I feel so fortunate that my career allows me to travel all over the globe. I love hunting for Chanel handbags when roaming around London or Paris. I get inspiration from everywhere: shoot locations, movies, art, books, old magazines…

“My fashion line, 6126, salutes modern women who understand that sophistication is always in vogue… It has been a dream come true to be so involved and hands-on in creating something I am so passionate about.”
