LINDSAY LOHAN has run into yet more criticism following her artistic advisor debut at the house of Emanuel Ungaro - this time from Mr Emanuel Ungaro, the original designer himself.
According to INDEPENDENT.CO.UK, Ungaro - who retired from the label in 2004 - this week told local press at an international film festival in Estoril, near Lisbon, that the actress' "collaboration was a disaster".
"I am furious but I can't do anything about it," the designer said, noting that he feared the fashion house was "in the process of losing its soul".
"This happens to a lot of designers, we were the creators and patrons, responsible for the creation and destiny of our houses. But when we gave up our houses, we gave up our soul," he added.
Just last month Giambattista Valli, former director at Ungaro, confessed how he, too, was unimpressed with Lohan's efforts. He told The Daily: "An actress ought to be an actress, and a fashion designer ought to be a fashion designer. These are their own professions, so everybody ought to concentrate on one thing. I chose, in my life, to be a fashion designer."
Meanwhile, Lohan seems unfazed - having told Sunday Times: "Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I didn't expect everyone to be completely loving the collection."
