I Guess Lindsay Is The Costume Designer for The Elizabeth Taylor Movie

From TMZ:

Lindsay Lohan’s finally looking the part — trying on some crucial Elizabeth Taylor-inspired outfits for her new movie … and TMZ has obtained pics of the wardrobe action.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, the actress is dead set on nailing Liz Taylor in her upcoming Lifetime movie “Liz and Dick” — so she’s spending countless hours trying to pick out the PERFECT outfits for the role.

We’re told Lindsay has final say on all wardrobe decisions for the film and has been giving major input into how to perfect Liz’s looks.

As we reported, Lindsay’s been obsessing over Liz, trying to get into the Hollywood legend’s head, studying her constantly for the last few months.

The photos were snapped earlier this week during a wardrobe fitting. The first outfit was selected to recreate a famous photo shoot from Elizabeth’s teenage years. The second is based on a Valentino dress Liz once wore.

“Liz and Dick” is scheduled to start shooting next month.

What a mess. I’m not sure why anyone decided to give Lindsay an acting job in the first place, but now they’re giving her final say over the costumes too? Does Liz and Dick even have a Dick yet? Shouldn’t we focus some energy on that instead of Lindsay Lohan’s Pretty Pretty Princess Dress-Up Time? Is there even a script yet, or is the whole thing just Lindsay trying on clothes and fooling herself into thinking that it’s 2003 again and everyone thinks she just has so much promise and potential? Because that’s what this is starting to feel like.

By the way, here’s that other photo of Lindsay that TMZ got:

I don’t think any of us are ready for how awful this is going to be.

  • I’m sorry, but can you please identify which is who in the bottom photos? My God, it’s like they’re identical twins! Brilliant casting!

  • Liz is known for being pale, maybe Lilo should stop with the fake-tan. And might as well stop plastic surgery and drugs as well.

  • I hope Lindsay takes a good long look at this picture of her next to the real Elizabeth Taylor. Not even close to representing Taylor. Her dress looks as cheap as her face and just thinking about her voice trying to be Taylor makes me want to hurl.

  • If Liz was raised in a trailer park in LA and did tricks for a living at the Steepleman Truck Stop.

  • OH, MY, GLOB! Liz is one of my favorite actress (Giant, Cleopatra, Reflections in a Golden Eye, Raintree County, Virginia Woolf…), I, don’t even, know, where to start… Repeat to myself, this is just a Lifetime TV movie, must breathe.

      • Ok, I feel better now.

        I have to say I’m kinda curious to see that mess of a movie. Her trying to be Taylor could be golden cinematic in tv moments history. I hope someone on YouTube will put clips of it, I don’t think the movie will be shown in french Canada, sadly.

  • This casting seems like a mean thing to do – taking advantage of Lindsay’s delusions, addictions, wasted appearance, and ineptitude to make fun of her. Liz could have played her, actually, and made her a much more sympathetic character.
