Project Runway head host Tim Gunn told The Cut at Fashion Week that he thinks Ungaro is crazy for hiring Lindsay Lohan:

“It’s got to be a publicity stunt!” he said. “Or a crack-smoking board of directors?”

As far as her stint as a guest judge on Project Runway, Gunn was actually pleased:

“I was surprised and pleased by how extremely knowledgeable about fashion and articulate Lindsay Lohan was,” he said. “She’s very young and can be portrayed in ways that aren’t altogether flattering, and she was a true statesperson and really weighed in on the designers and what they were doing exceptionally well. And it was really a thrill to have her.”

Ungaro CEO Mounir Moufarrige tells Fashion Wire Daily he chose Lindsay in large part because of Tim Gunn’s vote of confidence.

“His comments that she had a great sense of fashion and knew what works and doesn’t work, were pretty significant to me … This was authentic, not the paparazzi press all talking about her car accidents, or the drug things,” added Moufarrige. “To be complimented by someone like Tim Gunn was very impressive.”

So apparently, Tim Gunn is the one to blame for Lindsay Lohan being hired by Ungaro…although he claims they’re all a bunch of crackheads. haha.
