She is a fashion model with a fledgling music career.
But Ali Lohan looked more like a girl-next-door on Friday as she stepped out of her elder sister Lindsay’s apartment in Soho, New York.
The 19-year-old looked effortlessly cool wearing a zip-sleeved black leather jacket with a sheepskin collar, which was teamed with black skinny jeans and lace-up wedge boots.
She wore her highlighted brunette hair loose, wearing her fringe swept to one side.
She also carried a small black duffle bag while she was engrossed in listening to music on her phone.
