Lindsay Lohan has a new title to add to those of actress/troubled starlet/model — Artistic Adviser to fashion brand Emanuel Ungaro and their new chief designer, Estrella Archs.
Mounir Moufarrige, Ungaro’s chief executive officer, revealed the news to Women’s Wear Daily.
“Odds are it could work,” he said. “Everything we’re going to get is going to be a plus. I think the noise level around Lindsay will be very, very big.”
Lindsay tells WWD she wants to take the label to a “younger place.”
“When I’m involved in a project, I give my all to it,” she says. “I feel like there’s a correlation between everything I do, whether it’s pop music or film. I’ve always played a big part in what I wear, the costumes. Clothing is something that’s so expressive in so many ways. It really interests me. To be in a position where I’m working with a fashion house in Paris sets it apart from every other celebrity brand.”
As for her role in the team, Lilo says she “kind of oversees everything [Archs] does, while working with her. Different generations have different ideas.”
Archs also isn’t shying away from the potential for disagreements, asking WWD, “Have you ever met two women who agree completely about fashion?”
The Spanish designer and Lilo are scheduled to present their first collection in Paris on Oct. 4.
