It seemed for awhile that people were loathe to hire Lindsay Lohan. Her exploits have been well documented. In this business, if you can't complete the job you were hired to do, then people move on, no matter how popular you may have been.
There's no doubt, Lohan was on a hot streak for awhile. Her first film role was 1998's "The Parent Trap," she was lauded for her role in "Mean Girls," and also starred in "Freaky Friday" and "Herbie: Fully Loaded." Several years ago, "fully loaded" took on a whole different meaning when she was busted for DUIs and subsequently hit rehab.
But perhaps Lindsay Lohan isn't quite finished. Today, there's news that she's been hired. A position has been created for her at the House of Ungaro. The title? Artistic advisor. You may wonder what exactly an artistic advisor does. According to Ungaro, Lohan is "collaborating on the Spring/Summer 2010 runway collection unveiling on October 4, 2009 during Paris Fashion Week." She'll be working with newly named Chief Designer Estrella Archs.
Mounir Moufarrige, the President of Emanuel Ungaro worldwide, says “Mr. Ungaro’s success was based on his genius for design and his controversial eye to whom his consumer was. Lindsay is a world consumer with a clear eye for fashion.”
Lohan is no stranger to fashion, having launched a line of leggings, but do you think she's ready for the fashion big time?
