Lindsay Lohan hired as ‘artistic advisor.’ Why not?

By: The Superficial / September 9, 2009

Seen here in SoHo last night showing more yam than an overturned yam truck in Yamtown, Lindsay Lohan has been hired as the artistic advisor for Paris fashion house Ungaro where she’ll “oversee” Spanish designer Estrella Archs. Because when important decisions are being made, you want Lindsay Lohan in the room trying to lick coke out of her scarf. WWD reports:

For her part, Lohan, 23, told WWD she hopes to take Ungaro to a “younger place” with a harder fashion edge.
“When I’m involved in a project, I give my all to it,” the controversial celebrity said. “I feel like there’s a correlation between everything I do, whether it’s pop music or film. I’ve always played a big part in what I wear, the costumes. Clothing is something that’s so expressive in so many ways. It really interests me.
“To be in a position where I’m working with a fashion house in Paris sets it apart from every other celebrity brand.”
Lohan said her first fur coat was an Ungaro, which she purchased about 10 years ago. She prized its leopard spots and a pale pink lining that gave it its je ne sais quoi.
Asked to describe her role in the creative process, Lohan said she “kind of oversees everything [Archs] does, while working with her. Different generations have different ideas.”

So I’m going to assume the board of Ungaro woke up one morning and said “Hey, what’s a great way to lose a shitload of money stupid fast?” And here we are.
