Many outlets this week posted the first official photos of LiLo dolled up as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's upcoming Liz & Dick; most left critiques to reader commentary, but some couldn't help but pass judgment themselves. Behold the following genius observations from the world's finest online publications:
On first glance you could swear that it was the real Elizabeth Taylor. But on second look the woman in the glamourous picture is actually Lindsay Lohan.
That’s not a bad likeness, don’t you think? Of course, there are several factors to consider here: Primarily, that it was taken in a controlled environment and could have undergone editing.
Everything about this shot is flattering — the lighting, the angle, the fact that black-and-white photography makes it impossible to judge Lohan's current orangeness — but the resemblance is fairly impressive.
The makeup job looks quite impressive, helping to transform Lohan into Taylor. We’ll see — or rather, hear — if Lohan is able to reproduce Taylor’s tones as well.
You can tell so little from this — her eyes are closed, her head is back, and it's a still photo. All you are really seeing here is the simplest echoes they're trying to create. Whether Lindsay Lohan can play Elizabeth Taylor is something one might have strong opinions about, but this doesn't tell you very much in and of itself.
Lindsay Lohan has been called a lot of things, but "classic Hollywood icon" usually isn't one of them. ... Still, I have to admit she looks like a convincing Elizabeth Taylor in this photo...
Wow, Lindsay Lohan actually does look like Elizabeth Taylor. … But again: black-and-white. Profile-only. Photoshop. In other words, make of it what you will.
Now that’s an incredible likeness! ... Lifetime released the first official photo of Lindsay Lohan as Liz Taylor today — and the star of Herbie Fully Loaded is definitely looking on the money...
Ready for an Elizabeth Taylor double take? The first official pic has finally hit the web and we must say we're thoroughly impressed with LiLo's spot-on Liz look. … Now that we have photo confirmation that this film's really happening, we must 'fess, we're totally shocked by what we've seen thus far.
Not settling for a look-a-like wig, Lindsay actually got her hair cut and colored to look just like the iconic actress’. Sure to make a stunning replica of the vintage queen, Lindsay is already well on her way into the fabulous transformation.
Well, there you have it. Lindsay Lohan is Liz Taylor reincarnate, at least in the wardrobe department. ... One wonders if they’re working in a “Dracula” theme.
