Star tries to go for old-school glamour on red carpet, fails
Sometimes, Lindsay Lohan is making it very easy to be extremely critical of her. The red carpet ceremony for the premiere of her latest movie, the Lifetime biopic “Liz & Dick,” is just one of those times, it would seem.For the premiere, Lindsay, rocking a fierce auburn color and the reddest of red lips, tried to go for old-school Hollywood glamour in a Donna Dashini dress.
Her look is considered a major fail by most fashion watchers.
Yahoo!, for instance, brands it “trashy” and “tacky” because the dress was not right for the event – or simply not right, period.
“Lindsay Lohan tried to channel old-Hollywood glamour at the premiere of Lifetime's ‘Liz & Dick’ in Beverly Hills last night, but failed in a Donna Dashini dress that looked cheap, tacky, and dare we say, trashy,” the e-zine writes.
“The gold full-length gown featured three diamond-shaped cutouts accentuated with dangling red gems. When Lindsay, who plays the iconic Elizabeth Taylor in the movie, moved around in the slinky slip dress, the lowest cutout revealed her silver navel piercing,” adds the same media outlet.
Nevertheless, Yahoo! is being moderate in its criticism of the “flimsy-looking frock,” which it considers a “questionable choice” for Lohan, who literally has everything running on this film: this is supposed to be her big acting comeback.
Other media outlets are not so kind: from celebrity bloggers commenting on how Lohan appeared “dirty” and out of place on the red carpet, to more established fashion media outlets saying her entire Liz Taylor-inspired look reeks of desperation, everyone has a bad thing to say about it.
Lindsay herself did not seem too worried on the red carpet, as the video below will confirm. She talked about the film and, as expected, about the similarities between herself and Taylor, working on a movie while being hounded by the paparazzi, and her comeback.
Even if the film is better than critics are already saying, we can’t but help wishing she’d opted for something different on the red carpet.
