They say your body is a canvas, and anyone in Hollywood knows that means that when every stroke — from your fashion choices to your behavior — is put in the spotlight, it can easily turn into a masterpiece or a catastrophe.
Just ask June Ambrose, the stylist behind public-image tour de force Jay-Z. When MTV News caught up with the beloved celebrity stylist at Elle's Women in Music red carpet event in New York City on Wednesday night, we asked her what star she'd dream of making over with her signature touch. And it seems she's shooting for even the most troubled stars.
"Lindsay Lohan," Ambrose said, with little hesitation. "I'd love to work with Lindsay Lohan."
With a public image slightly more than blemished, the "Scary Movie 5" star would hardly be a one-stroke project. Just last month, Lohan was ordered to spend three months in rehab after allegedly lying to police about a June 2012 car accident. (It's a sentence she called "a blessing" on "The Late Show With David Letterman.") The incident was also in violation of a previous jewelry-theft case. But beneath all that poor publicity, Ambrose maintains the actress has "amazing potential." And the best way to bring it out is surround her with good company.
"She needs a friend; a real friend," she said. "That's what stylists become. We become that honest confidante, that sounding board."
Take, for example, her relationship with Hov, one that runs far deeper than a crisp suit or Yankees hat. Over many years of working together, Ambrose has become a close friend to Jay and wife Beyonce. And the stylist maintains that with tender loving care, Lohan too can create an image like the Carters.
"Someone who is allegedly 'in crisis' could really use someone who has experience working with all kinds of people," she said.
