LINDSAY LOHAN | Being Elizabeth Taylor
Lindsay Lohan may be a lot of awful things, but one thing for sure... she looks STUNNING as Elizabeth Taylor.
Lindsay Lohan is playing Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's biopic Liz & Dick. According to the movie's costume designer Salvador Pérez, Lohan will wear 66 different looks in the 80-minute biopic, which begins in 1961, ends with Richard Burton’s death in 1984 and focuses on their tumultuous relationship (an affair while she was still married, two weddings and two divorces). Sources say that Lohan hired a voice coach and even dyed her auburn hair a deep brunette to better match Taylor’s dark tresses.
Lohan’s hair and makeup will span all of Taylor’s looks, from the long lashes and red lips of the 1950s (attained using M.A.C’s “Hot Tahiti” lipstick) and the Cleopatra-inspired eyeliner and nude mouth of the ’60s to her teased ’80s bouffant, always with her trademark eyeliner to accentuate her famous violet eyes. (Lohan is wearing opalescent lavender contacts for the role.)
“She brings in makeup for me,” makeup artist Eryn Krueger Mekash, who’s using mostly Chanel, Dior and M.A.C products, tells PEOPLE. Adds the movie’s hair stylist, Beatrice De Alba, “She looks so much like her. There was a moment when she saw her picture on the monitor and said ‘I’m her.’ It was thrilling.”
Exciting right? Toink! :o)
