Emanuel Ungaro Bashes Lindsay Lohan's Collection as a "Disaster"

Emanuel Ungaro, founder of the fashion house which still bears his name, has publicly criticized Lindsay Lohan‘s recent collection, European newspapers report. On Monday evening, according to the Agence French Presse, the 76-year old Ungaro told an audience at the Estoril film festival in Lisbon, Portugal on Monday, that the collection on which Lohan served as fashion consultant “was a disaster.” The venerable designer continued, “I’m furious but there isn’t a thing I can do. I have absolutely no link with that house,” added Ungaro who sold his house to an investment fund in 2005. Lohan, 23, was announced as Artistic Advisor to the house in September and, less than a month later, presented her first collection designed in collaboration with Estrella Archs, who herself had only been named as the house’s designer at the end of July. At its showing in October, the Lohan/Archs collaboration was trashed by many critics, while the company itself supported their work, telling PEOPLE at the time of the designing duo, “This is a fashion couple.” According to reports, Ungaro told his audience that the house which bears his name was “well on its way to “losing its soul.” Ungaro explained, “This happens to a lot of designers. We were creator/owners, responsible for both the designs of the house and its destiny. But when you give up your house, we’ve also given up our soul.” –Peter Mikelbank

How about remembering that she is someone’s daughter? None of us, male or female can say we have not disappointed our parents.

Do I agree with her choices? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Her farray into fashion, not so good. If I were her parent, I would FORCE her to get sober (yeah, kicking and screaming)and still FORBIDDING her from apprearances until she got her life together. No access to money until 32yrs of age (in trust).

Call me then, work your ass off until you can be responsible. Lindsay, come into my home anytime. You have 4 of my 4 kids kids rooting for you. Me included, but do be ready for a “real” home.
