Just last month Emanuel Ungaro president Mounir Moufarrige defended his controversial decision to appoint Lindsay Lohan as the label’s artistic advisor. This morning, WWD reports, Moufarrige has resigned. President since 2006, Moufarrige had always been one of Lohan’s chief defenders, recently telling reporters, “The criticism was harsh. I am sure we can do better in the collection to be honest but I think it was harsh.” Of her own part in the fashion fiasco, which featured models flashing sequined pasties in October’s runway show, the 23-year-old starlet blamed “coming in so late and having not that much time to do a whole collection.” The house, and Lindsay’s continuing role within it, will now be overseen by the brand’s newly named general manager, Marie Fournier. Go to to view Lindsay’s infamous first pass at designing French fashion. Tell us: are you excited to see what Lindsay will turn out next at Emanuel Ungaro?
