Good News: Ungaro will keep Lindsay Lohan as “Artistic Director”. Bad News: Ungaro will keep Lindsay Lohan as “Artistic Director."

World Wide Web – Rumors have been swirling for the past few months that the House of Ungaro, will let go of their um…. “Artistic Director” actress Lindsay Lohan, though the label’s chief executive denies these reports. "Yes (she's staying on), she has a job to do," Mounir Moufarrige told Reuters at the Milan Global Fashion Summit.

"The criticism was harsh. I am sure we can do better in the collection to be honest but I think it was harsh ... But it did sell well," says Moufarrige of LiLo’s disastrous S/S 2010 Ungaro show.

Blaynistas, I have mixed feelings about this. Lindsay, who should really be confined to a rehabilitation center, design or style aesthetic was definitely incoherent for the Ungaro show (really LiLo?…glitter heart-shaped nipple pasties? a five year old can do that). Though, she does have mass marketing appeal and lends a tremendous amount of press for Ungaro. Though doubtful, I do believe in second chances. Let’s hope her F/W collection doesn’t involve pasties, maybe she’ll grasp that it will be too cold to wear them. [Story and Image: The Cut]

Ungaro is focused on their coinage! They are not thinking about getting "critical acclaim" because on the real and true a lot of critical favorites are going bankrupt right now. So while that Ungaro line is not gonna win any awards from the fashion mainline (and frankly most of the time, we gotta admit that fashion mainline is nothing but a bunch of racist, sizist elitist snobs), if they can turn a profit they are doing something right, and the accounting sheets don't lie.
