Lindsay Lohan wears an Elizabeth Taylor-inspired swimsuit on the set of Liz & Dick.
’Old Hollywood glamour’ is a phrase we use a lot around these parts. Typically embodied by strong hair and makeup and classic silhouettes, the red carpet staple of so many starlettes makes us nostalgic for the women who wore those looks before they were anything more than what people wore. Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, and, of course, Dame Elizabeth Taylor-with her signature beauty mark and violet eyes-are some of the women we look to so frequently for inspiration. While all three women also lived their lives in the spotlight. Lindsay Lohan is much more modern kind of star, but she shares the effortless elegance of her predecessors, as well as the burden of living her life in the public eye. We’ve seen Lilo transform into a nearly flawless Marilyn for NY Mag (photos NSFW, FYI), and now, thanks to upcoming Lifetime Original Movie Liz & Dick, we get to see the actress take on the iconic Liz Taylor. Early on set photos have begin to surface, showing Lindsay in a leopard print one-piece swimsuit aboard a yacht, not unlike a suit Taylor herself was photographed in. The film, which only began shooting on June 1st, is said to have Lindsay in at least 66 unique costumes, and we couldn’t be more impatient to see more!

Producers have also released the first official press photo for the film, which features Lohan being dipped by her co-star, Grant Bowler (you know, the smokin’ hot bad werewolf from the last season of True Blood?), who plays Richard Burton. The couple, whose relationship began as an affair when both were still married to other people, were married and divorced twice between 1964 and 1976.
What do you think of Lindsay’s on-screen transformation?
