Madonna v Lohan for Ungaro role!

17 September 2009

Lindsay Lohan Madonna

The fashion world hasn’t exactly embraced Lindsay Lohan in her new role as ‘artistic adviser’ of Emanuel Ungaro – it’s allegedly one of the reasons former head designer Esteban Cortazar left the house last month. But it looks like the young starlet fought off tough competition to win her role. Mounir Moufarrige, the president of Emanuel Ungaro, has revealed he met five celebrities before picking LiLo, including Madonna and Paris Hilton. (Can you imagine the front rowers reaction to that choice?) But it was clearly Lindsay who  convinced him that she could attract the attention. ‘She knows clothes. She will be a travelling advertisement,’ he’s said. Moufarrige is hoping Lindsay will bring ‘something younger, more cool, with a different attitude’ to the House of Ungaro alongside new designer Estrella Archs. And they’ll get to unveil their first efforts at Paris Fashion Week next month. Hmm… considering her appointment was only announced a fortnight ago, we’ll take that as meaning LiLo’s super-speedy at sketching and sewing on sequins by hand… [AP]
