Lindsay Lohan On Her Ungaro Debut: "I Am Learning"

The Paris fashion world never expected to see pasties on the runway. Nor, apparently, did the creative consultant behind the disastrous line, Lindsay Lohan. The actress, 23, who was skewered by the fashion press for the first Ungaro collection she served as artistic advisor on, blamed the fiasco on “coming in so late and having not that much time to do a whole collection.” As for the much-maligned sequined pasties flashed by the models when they opened their jackets and blouses, Lohan said told PEOPLE on Wednesday at a Victoria’s Secret Velvet launch party in New York that she was as shocked as the audience. “I wasn’t aware of the nipple tassels on the girls until they were walking out,” she says, adding that “I am going back to Paris for the next collection….I am learning.” Still, the clock for her next collection is already ticking. “It’s already in January,” she says. “I thought it was in March.” –Isley Kasica

People are like that keep blaming others. Like you guys keep blaming Linsay Lohan. Look…to put up a fashion show is not easy and especially so many people were involved. Why blame Lindsay for…?? Think…before pointing at her.

Money does not buy you taste, or class, or brains.
It does, however, buy you lots of cocaine. This is what LL knows. Go with what you know.

LAUGHTABLE! It’s all laughable. First Ungaro picks an unadmirable train wreck in Lindsay Lohan to be a “muse” and then Lindsay won’t own up to being utterly tasteless. I agree with the others that Ungaro has damaged the brand and that Lindsay Lohan is a poor excuse of a person, let alone as a designer. Pathetic.

[…] saying she didn’t have any time. Well, why was she out partying so much if she had to work? From People Magazine: The actress, 23, who was skewered by the fashion press for the first Ungaro collection she served […]


What was Ungaro thinking!!!! Lindsay is not a good image for any luxury brand, and she did not know about the collection because she didn´t work on it, sure!!!!!!!

Do not blame Lohan for being Lohan. Blame Ungaro for totally destroying a good brand. Remember that brand loyalty is gained in drops and lost in gallons.

Also blame everyone who is surprised she messed it up. Being surprised that she did a bad job is about as revealing as my dog being surprised the sun came up today.

If you get a wonderful assignment as an artistic advisor with Ungaro for which you are likely to be very well paid, and if the time is short, then as an adult, you can make the choice to work day and night, to put in extra hours, and do the best job you can.
Or you can be like Lindsay Lohan, stay up all night partying hard, cash in the money and blame the time crunch for her poor job.
This young person has no idea what hard work means. When she will be done ridiculing herself and she’ll be blacklisted in Hollywood and in the fashion industry, what will she do? Whatever money she has now will be gone soon enough. And then what?
I’m really sorry for this poor girl who’s so messed up. And outraged also that those close to her will let her destroy herself without doing anything.

Seems to me they are blaming LL for the disaster of Ungara…didn’t someone oversee her? She didn’t even know the girls had pasties…come on peeps!! I’m sure she’ll shine on her next collection, give her a break! If this was your kid, would any of you diss her and send her to her room? Probably not!!! gesh, give her a break at least she’s trying different things. More than what I’m sure most of you are doing. GO LL!!
