Lindsay Lohan ‘got so much backlash’ for her fashion designs

Some thought Lindsay Lohan’s foray into fashion wasn’t so fetch — but maybe she was just ahead of the curve.

The 36-year-old “Mean Girls” actress is enjoying a comeback right now, with a starring role in the new Netflix movie “Falling for Christmas” and a slew of headline-making style moments, courtesy of star stylist Law Roach.

But back in 2009, Lohan became the laughingstock of the fashion industry when her first collection as the artistic director of French luxury label Emanuel Ungaro debuted “to a chorus of boos,” as Page Six put it at the time.

Vogue described the looks on display — which including hot pink minidresses, sequined jackets and heart-shaped nipple pasties — as “disappointing” and “tasteless,” calling the whole thing “a bad joke of a fashion show.” Women’s Wear Daily dubbed the designs “cheesy and dated,” and the show “an embarrassment.”

But in a new interview with Who What Wear, Lohan said she “[misses] being involved in the fashion scene,” and thinks she might’ve been judged too harshly for her work at Ungaro.

“It’s funny … I got so much backlash for putting nipple tassels on the girls on the runway, and now, everyone does that, or they’re not wearing anything,” she told the outlet, before laughing and calling the ordeal “not fair.”

Between the rise of Barbiecore and the plethora of high-fashion nipple covers recently spotted on stars like Olivia Wilde and Beyoncé, Lohan’s not wrong.

At the time, after facing major backlash for the ta-ta tassels, the “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen” star denied they were her doing.

“I wasn’t aware of the nipple tassels on the girls until they were walking out,” Lohan told People in 2009 of her designer debut, before adding, “I am learning.”

Unfortunately, she never got the chance to show a second collection; by early 2010, Lohan told WWD the partnership was kaput.

Perhaps now that the “Parent Trap” star’s back on the scene, we’ll see her team up with another label.
