PARIS (Reuters) - Hollywood actress and wild child Lindsay Lohan is working with fashion house Emanuel Ungaro on a spring-summer collection, to be unveiled at the ready-to-wear shows in Paris in October.

Paris-based Ungaro said in a statement on Wednesday it had named Lohan artistic adviser and she would work with newly appointed chief designer Estrella Archs, contributing her experience as a consumer of luxury goods.

Lohan, who starred in the 2004 movie Mean Girls, is known for her love of fashion and shopping, but over the past two years her creative endeavors have been eclipsed by scandals, nightclub antics and drug problems.

She was briefly jailed in 2007 after being convicted of drunk driving and cocaine possession, and made to wear an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet.

The 23-year-old has recently been trying to rebuild her career, starring in an ABC Family television movie and launching a new production company.
