WWD reported today that Lindsay Lohan, former Emanuel Ungaro “design consultant,” wasn’t present at the fall 2010 Ungaro presentation in Paris this morning, nor was she involved in design process– and it shows. Ungaro designer Estrella Archs presented a collection of pretty clothes this morning that stuck to the Ungaro roots –bold prints and bold colors — but that deviated away from last season’s Lohan-influenced spring 2010 collection that was tacky and unwearable. Check out the drastic comparison shots–(on the left is Lindsay’s collection and the right is sans Lindsay’s input), plus similar pieces from the better runway show you can buy now.
It’s no surprise that Lindsay would suggest dayglo ruched leggings. While Lindsay lives in leggings, some of us have to work for a living. We much prefer the pair of cropped slacks from the fall 2010 show.
These J.Crew Stretch Wool Cropped Trouser ($118) can be dressed up with a bold top similar to the Ungaro look.
Without Lindsay’s input:
Oh, Lindsay. A triangle cut-out in the center of a dress works for about one tenth of the population. The photo on the right, though, with its one-shoulder on this fall 2010 printed mini-dress presented today is covered up enough to make it wearable.
This Alice & Olivia Elyse One Sleeve Dress ($231) has a similar shape to the Ungaro dress. The sheer sleeve makes the dress feminine and sexy.
At left, is Lindsay’s train wreck of a dress. We are big fans of a deep v neckline–it opens up your torso and makes you look slimmer–but if boob spillage can occur, it’s too low. The neckline on the red satin dress, however, looks like something we’d actually wear–and looks wardrobe malfunction-free.
This Aqua red corset dress ($50, on sale from $168) also has a sweetheart neckline and the same rich red color as the Ungaro dress.
