EVERYONE’S A CRITIC: “I think the noise level around Lindsay will be very, very big,” Ungaro chief executive Mounir Moufarrige predicted to WWD a little less than a month ago, when it was announced the starlet would be “artistic adviser” to the house. And judging by the post-show chatter, he was right. Commenters on WWD.com, responding to WWD’s negative review of Lindsay Lohan’s debut at the fashion house, were divided about evenly on both sides. Lohan had plenty of defenders, most of the let-the-poor-girl-be variety. “A few of the designs aren’t bad,” one remarked. “They’re wearable. And young. And fun. Give the girl a break.” Another cautioned against comparing the 23-year-old with her Paris counterparts: “Of course this is not ‘Galliano’ couture dripped with drama and experience but I see the inspired ‘youthfullness’ [sic] expressed through its colors and simplicity in lines.”

Meanwhile, her detractors were as cutting as “Mean Girls’” Regina George. “The hearts and pasties make me think that this collection was designed by a 18-year-old in 1987,” was one bon mot. Said another, “The nail in Ungaro’s coffin.” And perhaps most damning: “I could see any of these pieces in the bottom three at a ‘Project Runway’ challenge.”

Commenter Lisa had a peacemaking proposal: “Lets [sic] let designers design, actors act, writers write and models model. Wouldn’t that be refreshing?”
