Lindsay Lohan’s Liz & Dick Premiere Look: Fantastic Hair, Gradually-Splitting Dress

Let’s be truthful: Lindsay Lohan looks mildly ridiculous at least 80% of the time. From bronzer blunders to having the least seductive signature pose ever, LiLo tends to teeter a line somewhere between Courtney Love’s messiest days and an off-strip Las Vegas Marilyn Monroe impersonator.

However, she spruced up quite a bit for the premiere of Lifetime’s Liz & Dick (I didn’t even realize Lifetime had premieres, but I assume it was a special case given all the publicity surrounding the film).

I’ll be honest, I pretty much hate this Donna Dashini dress. It sort of resembles the ones from Deb and other junior stores during prom season, with its over-the-top navel-revealing front complete with dangly beads. Even if this is how it’s supposed to appear, it nevertheless looks ill-fitting and a bit uncomfortable.

However, I admittedly love her hair and makeup. It’s definitely heavy, but it still looks quite nice and I don’t feel like her makeup artist is playing a cruel joke on her for once. Plus, it’s endearing that she’s showing off the freckles that helped make her famous.

She later added a fur shawl that upped the old Hollywood glamour factor.

Overall, I give this look a B-minus. On most people, it’d be a D given that dress, but there’s a certain curve that comes into play here.

Lohan reportedly told Us Weekly that she wants to be known as an “actress, not a troubled starlet.” Now, while I wouldn’t use the word “starlet” for her, as it implies she isn’t primarily famous for several DUIs and only one good movie, it is sort of optimistic to know that she desires to improve. Maybe? Probably not, but it’s nice to dream.

    More than one good movie! The Parent Trap, Mean Girls, Bobby, Georgia Rule (I liked it!) and I hear Machete’s good, though I haven’t seen it. GAWD I used to love her. I so hope she eventually smartens up and gets good again.

      Let’s not forget Freaky Friday, starring Chad Michael Murry and his idiot hair!

    • Nancy

      I liked that one, too! I didn’t think it was the best evidence, though lol

      I will be real: that was mostly an excuse to talk about CMM and his hair because I irrationally hate both of them.

    • Nancy

      Oh! lol I dislike his squinty eye I “I’m too serious” face

      @disqus_zgYEDifOUs:disqus & @helloalle:disqus — This thread is fantastic. Also: I can’t believe I forgot The Parent Trap!

      Oh and I file CMM under the same weird squinty category as Shane West. They both dropped off the map, thank goodness.

      EXACTLY. Remember that Friends episode where Joey explains that when he was on the soap opera, he’d pretend to smell something really bad whenever he needed to react to something? I feel that CMM and Shane West pretended to stare at a variety of really bright lamps. SQUINTING IS NOT ACTING.

    • Samantha_Escobar

      YES. Oh god, every time I have to be serious from now oh, I’m gonna wind up imagining them trying to be serious and burst out laughing…

      This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for Chad Michael Murray gifs. Truly the reason for the season.

    That dress makes her look like the victim of some sort of ritual stabbing, a la Dexter victim.

    At least in the bottom picture she looks less than 40 years old………..
