So the end of LohanGate is finally in sight, but don't expect to be satisfied. Yesterday afternoon, reps from the house of Emanuel Ungaro, (which Lindsay Lohan was rumored to be fired from after a disastrous first attempt at being creative), confirmed that the actress would be staying on as 'artistic adviser'. O.M.G. "Yes (she's staying
on), she has a job to do," the label's chief executive, Mounir Moufarrige, told Reuters at the Milan
Fashion Global Fashion Summit.
After asked about the child's play that made up Lohan's first show, Moufarrige did agree that maybe some of the elements of her Spring 2010 line—like heart-shaped pasties for instance— were a bit, um, inappropriate.
"The criticism was harsh," he admitted. "I am sure we can do better in the
collection to be honest but I think it was harsh … But it did sell
well." Moufarrige did add that future Ungaro collections should be "more tight, more identity driven" to succeed. That, and lose the pasties.
While the house begins to look ahead with their potentially ticking time bomb still strapped on, Moufarrige says that the label is remaining optimistic. Though it was recently reported that both Net-a-Porter and Neiman Marcus dropped Unagro for the Spring, Moufarrige noted that Bloomingdale's, Harvey Nichols, and various Japanese stores have "shown interest." Hopefully things stay that way. Meanwhile, now that Lohan has secured her position within the company for the time being, we're all still wondering what t is exactly that she's doing. She recently twittered about some sort of photo shoot with her sister for Purple Magazine. Maybe it would be better if she stuck to publicity things like that, and left the actual designing to the people who know how. Stay tuned!
