What's with the black Morticia Addams inspired dress? Morticia Addams' dress may have even been better than that piece of crap. How creative! (insert sarcasm here)

Look number four is so ugly it's not even humorous.

The problem with money has nothing to do with the designer they hire, the amount they're paid is not significant compared to the profits they make. Besides, if they've money to hire a celebrity why couldn't they afford another designer? I'm pretty sure hiring Lindsay is much more expensive than hiring Darré or Cortázar...

Furthermore, if the main collection is successful it would be much more beneficial for the company than the sum they could save with Esteban Cortázar or Vincent Darré as main designers.

Ungaro is clearly hanging by a thread and are on the verge of imploding into absolute bankruptcy.

The clothes are nothing short of shambolic.

To me Ungaro is just a house that hasn't mattered since Peter left.

Yeah just like Chloe before Philo or like Givenchy before Tisci...

There are certain costs a company must be willing to pay for profitability, the whole Lindsay thing was such a failure.

this is the first time i've ever laughed so hard over a collection

goodgrief, Lindsay has outdone herself at being awful. these pieces are
just plain appalling. what kind of fabric did they use, cheesecloth? and
what in blazes are those polkadots and patches... Lindsay's halfhearted
attempt to capture zoology in her designs? and most of all, where on
earth is Estella Archs and how could she have let. this. catastrophe. happen?


but i'd have to give it to Lindsay. this really is the funniest collection i've
ever seen and i mean that quite literally

Hiring Lindsay was clearly a final resort scheme to try and resuscitate the house, but so far it's nothing short of a fiasco so maybe they'll finally call it a day and just go bankrupt, because they've milked the house for all it's worth (if it's even worth anything anymore) and drained it of any pride it had left.

Put some bug-like wings with that ladybug dress, carry a wand and wear an alice-band with bug-eye protuberances and you're set for a costume party!

That Morticia Addams~esque black dress. Wear a witch hat and your halloween's all set!

Oh, and that hideous cow dress.. I don't find any use for that.

even well established houses and conglomerates have found themselves having money problems. this recession has hit everyone from the veronique branquinhos to the yohji yamamotos. i don't know how much you think they actually paid lindsay lohan, but it was a hail mary pass to get some excitement back into that house. i don't know that they have the money to hit restart yet again with another team.
