Emmanuel Ungaro - Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010Lindsay Lohan's strongest (perhaps only) supporter at Emanuel Ungaro, Mounir Mouffarige, has resigned from his post as CEO of the company.

A brief statement revealed that Mouffarige will stay on in an advisory capacity, but is withdrawing himself from an operational role to concentrate on his other businesses. "It's my decision. It's not a total departure, except for operational duties," Moufarrige he told WWD.

Meanwhile, Lindsay will stay on at the label as artistic advisor. Mouffarige was one of the troubled starlets biggest advocates, sticking by her even when her début collection was panned by the critics.

"The criticism was harsh. I am sure we can do better in the collection to be honest but I think it was harsh... But it did sell well," he said just last month.
