Everybody knows that wildchild Lindsay Lohan is very much into fashion. Rumor  has it, Lohan wants to take her interest in fashion one step further (her leggings line does not count) and wants to be a creative consultant for Emanuel Ungaro. I know, I know it sounds kind of creepy, a Hollywood starlet working for one of the most prestigious fashion houses in the world.
