Lindsay Lohan’s Lips Accept Position at Ungaro

Lindsay Lohan

There was talk at the beginning of the summer that Lindsay Lohan was in talks with design house Emmanuel Ungaro to come on as an artistic consultant.  Well the head designer who was having kittens over the prospect is out — and Linds is in.

After the July departure of Esteban Cortazar, the top guy at Ungaro who vehemently opposed Lohan joining the team, the company brought on relative unknown Estrella Archs to team up with relative too-known Lindsay Lohan.  The goal is catch the eye and wallet of a younger demographic in hopes of saving the struggling label.

Mounir Moufarrige, Ungaro’s chief executive officer, is already relishing the prospect of that image running in newspapers and on Web sites around the world, bringing a lightning bolt of attention — good, bad or otherwise — to a French brand that has severely lacked it as it endured a revolving door of designers and lackluster collections. 

“Odds are it could work,” Moufarrige said, disclosing the appointments exclusively to WWD. “Everything we’re going to get is going to be a plus. I think the noise level around Lindsay will be very, very big.” 

What does this mean for Linds’ stalkers?  Well, for one thing, it means that she’s dressing a hell of a lot better when she’s seen out and about.  I put up a few pics of the designer/singer/producer/model taken this weekend  She seems to have branched out from flannel shirts and leggings.  Bras are still presenting a challenge for her at this time.
