Lindsay Lohan hasn't received a penny for her work in helping design a collection with Emanuel Ungaro, according to U.S. reports.

The "Mean Girls" star signed on as artistic adviser for the French fashion house in September 2009 and rushed to design her first range in a matter of weeks - only to have her efforts slated by industry experts.

And it seems the criticism wasn't worth her time and effort - the star is being sent clothes instead of checks, according to U.S. broadcaster Fox.

A source tells the network, "Ungaro is not paying her at all to be a consultant for them. Her team is working to get Lindsay some form of payment from the fashion house, but right now they will only give her free clothes."
