Lindsay Lohan was snapped sampling various Elizabeth Taylor-inspired costumes for her role in the biopic Liz And Dick – her first leading lady part since the rather abysmal 2009 flop Labor Pains.
However, Lindsay Lohan, 25, didn’t bother to brush her hair for the wardrobe fitting, instead just scraping her messy locks back into scruffy bun.
A source told TMZ that Lindsay Lohan has been granted the “final say on all wardrobe decisions” and she has been relishing the opportunity to “perfect Liz’s looks”.
The website also claims LiLo has been “obsessing” with “getting into the Hollywood legend’s head”.
During the wardrobe fitting, Lindsay Lohan drew attention to her slender frame in a summery aquamarine cocktail dress, selected solely to recreate a famous snapshot from when Elizabeth Taylor was a teenager.

LiLo is also captured in a red dress, which is said to be based on a Valentino dress Liz Taylor once wore.
Speaking of her role, Lindsay Lohan revealed in a statement: “I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well.
“I am very honored to have been asked to play this role.”
The television movie, which will feature on the Lifetime Network, will tell the true tale of Elizabeth Taylor and her romance with actor, and fifth husband, Richard Burton.
Their relationship was considered somewhat of a scandal in the Sixties, with both parties already married as they embarked on their affair.
While a director is yet to be announced for the June shoot, Christopher Monger has been confirmed as the writer (Temple Grandin), and Larry A. Thompson (Amish Grace) will play executive producer.

Pat Houston said that a show surrounding the Houston family has been in the works for years.
She said: “I have been working with Simmons Shelley over the past few years developing a project suitable for myself and our family. The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show. However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward.”
Lifetime writes in a press release: “Lifetime has picked up <<The Houston Family Chronicles>> (working title), an all-new docu-series that will follow the lives of the late Whitney Houston’s family… Whitney Houston’s sudden passing left behind a major void felt not only by the world, but also by those who loved her most, her beloved family. <<The Houston Family Chronicles>> follows those closest to the pop music icon as they try to pick up the pieces after her untimely death.”
The Houston Family Chronicles will premier this year. Lifetime has ordered ten hour-long episodes.
