Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West showed off his Hollywood pass this weekend after being spotted with actress Lindsay Lohan in California.
Both stars were photographed together at the opening of Giuseppe Zanotti Design retailer in Beverly Hills.
Lindsay Lohan isn't letting a little thing like a possible felony charge in a jewelry heist keep her from getting her party on. The recently-rehabbed starlet was at the opening of Giuseppe Zanotti Design in Beverly Hills Friday night, and RadarOnline.com has the picture proof.

The duo's appearance together comes just months after Yeezy publicly dismissed Lohan's fashion sense by comparing it to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Lindsay Lohan's initial foray into the world of fashion was met with some harsh criticism when she partnered with a storied fashion house a year ago. And as if the troubled actress didn't have enough worries, on Wednesday night in London, during a screening of his 35-minute epic, experimental film "Runaway," Kanye West had some very sharp-elbowed opinions about Lohan's sideline. According to Elle UK, West reportedly referred to Lindsay's collaboration with fashion house Ungaro as the "9/11 for celebrities doing fashion. After that, I thought, 'Well, I can't do a line now.'"

Details on Lohan's past fashion designer attempt hit the Internet last year.
Lindsay sent heart-shaped pasties down the runway for Spring 2010, a debacle which crippled the company and tarnished its brand image. Kanye says after that he put his long rumored line Pastelle on hold and thought, "well I can't do a line now" and, "people look down on celebs doing fashion." Poor Kanye, so much love for clothes and nowhere to go. Lindsay's stint at Ungaro didn't help celebrities who want to get involved in the fashion industry, but don't lose hope Kanye! Just look at Sienna Miller, Gwen Stefani, Victoria Beckham and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen--they're doing great! (Style Bistro)
Last September, West stressed his emphasis on fashion by discussing how his style has changed as of late.
"It's so funny -- I see photographs of myself from three, four years ago, and I had really similar look sense but it's kind of like curating and getting rid of things that, you know, competed," he told us from his perch on the front row of Phillip Lim's men's show yesterday. "I had clothes that were, like, more in competition with me than complementing me." For yesterday's show, Lim dressed the rapper in a dapper black suit and blush shirt with a black boutonnière pinned to his lapel. "[It's about] getting things that complement. I asked Phillip for this color," West explained, referring to the shirt. "This is a women's shirt he had, and I just felt this color would be really, really nice on my skin so I was really happy about it." (In fact, Lim's use of color is one of the reasons West says he's so fond of the label.) West's beauty routine is much simpler than his dressing process, even during Fashion Week. "I'm lucky if I just brush my hair," he said. "I don't have a routine like that. I take a shower? That's about it." (New York Magazine)
