Looks like Lindsay Lohan won't be joining the nation's ballooning population of unemployed Americans.

After critics called her debut collection an "embarrassment," the 23 year-old star will keep her position as artistic advisor for fashion house Emanuel Ungaro, the company's chief executive Mounir Moufarrige said Tuesday.

"Yes (she's staying on), she has a job to do," Moufarrige said in Milan, reports Reuters.

Designer Ungaro himself was among Lohan's critics, calling Lohan's designs (including sequined, heart-shaped pasties) a "disaster."

"Mr. Ungaro has his views, he can keep them. I have no comment," Moufarrige retorted. As for the professional reviews from the likes of Women's Wear Daily, he conceded, "I am sure we can do better in the collection to be honest but I think it was harsh ... But it did sell well."

After Lohan's Paris show Oct. 4, a Women's Wear Daily critic hissed, "Lindsay, it's time to get serious about reviving the acting career," adding that the audience watched the runway with "endless snickers and rolled eyes."

Moufarrige added there is "more buzz" around Ungaro as a result of Lohan's involvement.
