Lohan Fakes-Out Photogs -- Not TMZ

Lindsay Lohan pulled a fast one on paparazzi yesterday -- sending her assistant out the front door of Magnolia's as a decoy -- while she snuck out the back!

TMZ cameras caught Lindsay after her rehearsals at Millennium Dance Complex yesterday, shopping at a store next to Lisa Kline, Lilo kept trying to block her face with a hat and top while she perused the racks.

From there she went to Magnolia for some food, and tried to distract paps by having a black Escalade pull up to the front of the restaurant. She then snuck out the back door while her assistant drove off in the waiting Cadillac. Lindsay didn't fool everyone though...
