The CSM graudate, who loves playing with proportions within a sexy, feminine style, has an aesthetic that is spot on in terms of the DNA of Ungaro according to the CEO, Mounir Moufarrige. Judging from her past few collections, she definitely has that sexy thing going on. Cut-outs, sheer fabrics, frills and the way she uses pink in her newer collections are good enough of a resume to Moufarrige.

Moving away from Estrella, has anyone noticed that Ungaro is now onto their fourth designer after Giambattista Valli left in 2005 (he was handpicked by Ungaro  himself to head the house when he retired). Since then it started with Vincent Darré to Peter Dundas to Esteban Cortezar and now Estrella, with Lindsay Lohan. About Lindsay , linking her to the brand is not only a surprise move after all, they invited Rumi of to their Fall ’09 show earlier this year, they are clearly targeting the younger edgier crowd these days. Lindsay is going to bring them SO MUCH attention in future. For now, just start picturing Lindsay coming out to thank the crowd on a Parisian runway…
