…hell?

Lindsay Lohan, a child actress with a penchant for partying and making headlines, teamed up with Parisian fashion label, Ungaro, to launch a Spring 2010 collection that has many fashion minds shaking their heads.  I’m guessing that Lohan’s new title of “Artistic Advisor” was a bit of a stretch for the actress turned tanning-products-and-leggings designer.  For the Ungaro show, the colors, the obvious heart motifs, 80’s silhouettes, a widely divergent look for the Ungaro house…are just some of the factors cited by style sources.  For me, I just couldn’t appreciate the pasties + blazer combo:

Here are just a few of my favorite blogs, sounding off on the collection:

Style.com – “This quickly devolved into a bad joke of a fashion show, one with questionable color combinations, “bad eighties” draped silk jackets and drop-crotch pants, old-fashioned and ill-judged fur stoles, and, yes, tasteless sequin pasties. To top it off, the fabrics and the construction lacked the finesse you expect from a famous Avenue Montaigne brand.”

Stylexperts – “When I heard this summer while in St Tropez from one of the major manager of Ungaro, they just appointed Lindsey Lohan to design the new Ungaro collection, I nearly felt out of my chair.”

Racked NY – “Basically, everyone is obsessed with the Lindsay Lohan at Ungaro thing and no one really likes it.”

The Recessionista – “All I can say is WTF?! Why, why, why? Here we are in the midst of some really tough times and this high-priced “collection” is released.”

Of course, critics are meant to have strong opinions and be meticulous, and maybe the general public will like the collection.  But personally, I’m not a big fan of neons, pasties, or skin-tight dresses.  What do you think?

As a marketing major and fresh blogger, I’ve come upon a bit of news that will rock the blogosphere.  The Federal Trade Commission announced that it will regulate endorsements via the social media.  That means that any blogger (from celebrity to a casual writer) will be subject to FTC regulation and must make public the “material connections” in product reviews.  Advertising, celebrity endorsements, and product opinions now fall under the scope of a guideline penned in 1980.   A ripple effect  will surely alter future blog advertising, free products/gifts to bloggers, company sponsorship, product reviews, et cetera; ultimately, it’s a broad jurisdiction which I’m curious to see how the FTC will monitor everyone.  For more information, read the news directly from the FTC here.  What do you think???

My boyfriend and I saw Zombieland this weekend.  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.  I love films about zombies, even funny ones like Zombieland.  Despite the mild gore and zombie-slaying, I couldn’t help but notice how cute Emma Stone as “Wichita” looked in her moto-style outfit.  The aesthetic is so befitting for me that I’ve decided to be her for Halloween this year and my boyfriend will be my zombie victim.
