Rumours have been circulating for months that fashion house Ungaro was interested in tapping Lindsay Lohan for a role at the label, and today WWD has confirmed that she will act as artistic director to the house's new creative director, Estrella Archs.
Archs replaces Estaban Cortazar who left earlier this year over alleged differences with CEO Mounir Moufarrige's idea to hire Lohan.
Lindsay's role will be to inject some youth and sex-appeal in to the brand which has been making a loss for several seasons. It also fulfils a lifelong ambition for the ELLE cover girl who has often spoken of designing her own collection, and already has her own leggings and tights line, 6126.
But will she be designing any of the clothes herself? Lindsay told WWD, 'I kind of oversee everything [Archs] does, while working with her.'
The first collection by Archs and Lohan will debut at Paris Fashion Week on 4th October. (See it first in ELLE's catwalk channel.)More
