Paris Fashion Week: At Ungaro, Lindsay Lohan is a no-show

March 8, 2010 | 12:18 pm


After her disastrous debut as artistic advisor at Emanuel Ungaro last season, with a collection that put models in glittery heart pasties, Lindsay Lohan was a no-show at the fall runway show for the French brand Monday.

(Lohan has been making the rounds at other Paris fashion shows, however, including Viktor & Rolf and John Galliano.)

The collection was probably better for it. Eighties-inspired print blouses, worn with cropped pants and boyfriend jackets, short satin skirts draped at the hips, and ruched and pleated cocktail dresses (did we really need seven nearly identical short black dresses?) paid homage to the exuberant style of the house in a way that wasn't offensive but didn't inspire much desire or look especially luxurious either.

Estrella Archs, Ungaro's design director, took her runway bow solo. But even without Lohan, who is rumored to have left her post (though a company representative would not confirm that), this collection is a still a non-starter.
