Lindsay Lohan is officially a mom! Earlier this week, the actor gave birth to her first child—a baby boy named Luai—with husband Bader Shammas. Just days before welcoming their first child, however, Vogue caught a few moments with Lohan to discuss all things motherhood and maternity style. Her rotation includes Crocs, the ugly-chic shoe that’s been trending this year. Despite being an obviously comfortable shoe choice, her love of the rubber footwear may have to do with the fact that the star is the face of a new MCM x Crocs collaboration, officially unveiled today.
For spring 2023, the fashion brand MCM collaborated with Crocs on a line of its Mega Crush Clogs. The two platform styles—in black and gold, or white and silver—are now available. They come with a mini-belt bag that can be attached and detached to the extremely chunky silhouette. “I love the little pouch that attaches, because you can also put it on other parts of your wardrobe, or on your purse,” says Lohan of the design. “And for me, it can fit a pacifier!”
Vogue chatted with Lohan below about the clothing and shoes she wore throughout her pregnancy, her new fashion campaign, her weirdest pregnancy cravings (hint: It involves Gatorade), as well as what she’s looking forward to as she enters motherhood.
Vogue: Congrats on the new campaign! What drew you to being a part of this collaboration?
Lindsay Lohan: I was honored when asked. The new MCM x Crocs Mega Crush is playful and chic. The shoe combines style, versatility, and comfort—all important to me when choosing the perfect accessory. It was an extra special touch to shoot here in Dubai, the place that I call home.

Crocs are having a huge moment in fashion. Are you a fan? Why is everyone embracing them?
People are obsessed with Crocs right now because everybody is looking for comfort. It’s fashion and comfort combined.
Are Crocs in your summer shoe closet? What have you been wearing?
My summer shoe closet is Chanel ballet flats and sandals. And Alaïa. I love Alaīa’s sandals—they last forever, and they’re so comfortable. I also tend to live in all of the rubber Valentino flats. I’m in flats this whole summer!
What about clothing-wise? What have been some of your summer go-tos?
Clothing-wise, I always love white linens and white, flowy, Grecian-looking dresses for summer. Comfort is always key, especially in Dubai—it’s warmer here. This summer, it’s been dresses all summer. My friend, Margherita Missoni, sent me some really cute, stretchy Maccapani pieces. On my birthday, I also wore this really cute, stretchy, Self-Portrait multicolor sorbet dress. Also, oversized T-shirts have been my go-to pieces.
Has your style changed a lot during your pregnancy?
For my maternity style, I’ve been wearing similar things; Everything I would normally wear, I’ll just get the bigger sizes. I’ll get something from The Row, but I’ll get it oversized. Or a T-shirt from the Frankie Shop, but oversized. Because I still feel like me—just with a growing belly!
Have you found any items that strike the right balance between comfort and style?
I love a good oversized button-down work shirt. T-shirts with some cute ripped jeans or jean shorts. And a nice, long maxi dress. You could even do a cute Zara dress with cute Valentino flats, and a great purse.
Is there anything you haven’t been able to wear during your pregnancy that you’re looking forward to rocking?
I haven’t really worn anything short. Post-birth, maybe I’ll be able to wear some more fitted, structured pieces. That will be fun to get into again—to get back into the more fun fashion game. Some corseted pieces. I also haven’t been able to go to fashion week in a long time—Paris or Milan Fashion Week—so just to wear designer pieces again will be really exciting. I have not been able to wear my Alaïa dresses this summer, which I usually live in.
Did you have any weird pregnancy cravings during your pregnancy?
I never used to drink Gatorade, but being pregnant, I craved Gatorade. That’s been a weird craving. I’ve also craved different teas that I haven’t had forever, or a cup of cold milk randomly. I’m not a big junk food eater, but I would randomly get a craving for strawberry Poptarts. And beets! I would crave beets all the time. I would have a lot of chicken and beets.
What are you looking forward to the most about motherhood?
I look forward to building a family with my husband, and experiencing my life as a mom. And sharing our worlds with this beautiful new person. It’s a really exciting time. I’m feeling really grateful, blessed, and excited.
