This Week in High Fashion: IN YOUR FACE LINDSAY LOHAN

Yes...that's right...I found it...the article I've been waiting for!!!

Remember not so long ago, I made a post about Lindsday Lohan's misadeventures in High Fashion with her sponsor/victim, the Ungaro label???

I was SO pleased to come across this article the other day...so pleased in fact, that I had to share bits of it with all of you.


" (Reuters) - Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan's design career has ended after a single collection for Parisian label Emanuel Ungaro, leaving the fashion world divided over whether her work was a disaster or a much-needed bit of fun.

Ungaro designer Estrella Archs, who worked with Lohan on last year's widely panned show of buttock-revealing dresses and strippers' nipple stickers, showed her second Ungaro collection on Monday. She said Lohan had no hand in it.

"You have up and downs and you learn a lot, more from the downs than from the ups," Archs told reporters backstage when asked about the dire reviews of last year's show with Lohan, who acted as artistic adviser.

"I feel that I have to work, work, work and work ... I've been doing this for a long time, with different people and different houses, and I think this is the best medicine," said Archs, looking close to tears.

Their joint collection has just hit the shops, but Lohan has gone back to buying rather than producing fashion -- she was seen at Roberto Cavalli in Milan, and was invited to Dior in Paris on Friday, though she came late and missed the show."

Archs, with no entertainment career to fall back on, has stuck with Ungaro, turning out an autumn/winter collection of jewel-colored dresses, bustier tops and leopard print trousers.

The fashion house now appears to be uncertain over whether it should pretend the Lohan collection never happened, or be proud of its Hollywood connection.

A week before the show, Ungaro's press department firmly said that the actress was still working as artistic adviser. At the show, Archs said just as firmly that Lohan was not involved."

This is my favorite bit:
"The fashion house now appears to be uncertain over whether it should pretend the Lohan collection never happened, or be proud of its Hollywood connection."

From the looks of this picture...I think it's going to be a "pretend it never happened" kind of scenario.
I mean, look at this woman's face...Oh, Estrella...this is not the face of a collaboration an artist should be proud of...this is the face of bitter BITTER disappointment on a woman who knows that she is going to have to bust her buffet challenged ass to regain even a SHRED of the respect that the Ungaro name HAD before Little Miss LoHo got a hold of the design scissors...speaking of Lindsay...she looks ECSTATIC to be on the runway getting all the attention from strangers that she should have gotten from her parents. Aw.

One of these things is not like the other...
