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

Lindsay, pls go to chruch or somewhere peaceful, where you can talk with our lord Jesus Christ without distraction. Talk to him, he already saved us from our sins, we just have to take the time to accept & truely live in his footsteps. You do that & he’ll be there for you & grant you unconditional happiness & support for your life here on earth. Forget about all the drama, he’ll take care of you If you truely give him your heart. I know everythings confusing right now, cheer up & pls give It a try, whats the hurt In trying? Love you & get better.

Lohan did her best between party times and if grunge were back, she’d be competative. At least the fashion bum might have other options.

Let’s face it. I saw the collection and most of it is a boiling, hot mess. There is no way that any fashionista with a little bit of sense will spend any type of money to wear anything from that collection. I have said it before that unless it is going to be sold at Forever 21 for less than $10, no one is going to buy it.

Lindsey is a complete mess, I’ll admit that, but this line of clothes is actually pretty good. It’s not the best thing I’ve ever seen but the clothes look really nice.

I know she’s always on drugs and stuff, but I actually really care for Lindsey. She had (not is) been my role model for a long time. I loved her movies, and she even made comercials entertaining. I always tell my mom, if I could give a a good slap in the face to wake her up from this retarded dream she’s in I would. I would jsut go right up to her and yell and just let out all my feelings! I wish I could help her, but I can’t. So good luck Lindsey! I hope you don’t die! (like seriously)
