Lindsay Lohan
's finally looking the part -- trying on some crucial Elizabeth Taylor-inspired outfits for her new movie ... and TMZ has obtained pics of the wardrobe action.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, the actress is dead set on nailing Liz Taylor in her upcoming Lifetime movie "Liz and Dick" -- so she's spending countless hours trying to pick out the PERFECT outfits for the role.

We’re told Lindsay has final say on all wardrobe decisions for the film and has been giving major input into how to perfect Liz’s looks.

As we reported, Lindsay's been obsessing over Liz trying to get into the Hollywood legend's head, studying her constantly for the last few months.

The photos were snapped earlier this week during a wardrobe fitting. The first outfit was selected to recreate a famous photo shoot from Elizabeth's teenage years. The second is based on a Valentino dress Liz once wore.

"Liz and Dick" is scheduled to start shooting next month.

Now I have a REALLY pressing question. Who in Sam Hill photo-shopped that pic of LL in the red dress? The terrible job they did makes it look like she has elephantiasis of the foot and ankle

Now HELL(p) tell us something we do not already know, because if you don't when ROL burps up some little blurb of whatever I will not allow you to say "I told you so", because so far you have told us nothing.

I am off, have a few more hours of research on that book. Dratted thing went from a gold mine to a silver mine in less than five minutes, but hey, a silver mine can be just as productive for someone in need!!!!

That really is a crappy pose in the red dress. That is a tag hanging down, but it does not make up for the fact that she cannot fill out that dress like Liz. Except for the floppy milkers, she basically has the figure of a 14 y.o. boy. Flat ass, no hips, straight trunk. She completely lacks curves. Clothes will not fit her like they did E.T., and she will look awkward.

Help is sounding more and more like Delmar...especially at the end.

Blohan has final say on wardrobe?? LOL Lifetime is truely classless. Well, we know who will play the duck in Duck and Dick, but who will play Dick?? How about Dog the Bounty Hunter? He just got canned and will have the time. Of course, he'll have to have the final say on Burton's wardrobe too. And who will pose as La Liz as a teen? Certainly not the 40 yr old Blohan. Maybe Dina or AlleyBlo, Jr!!

I'm sure there is time to make this mess worse than it already is. Surely there's a role for maximum creep BloDad too. It's a family affair!! Pucker up, TMZ, ass kissing ahead!

(Apologies to and fond memories of the beautiful one and only Liz.)

Lindsay Lohan is extremely unhappy with the casting choices of the male actors who have auditioned for the role of Richard Burton in the Elizabeth Taylor Lifetime biopic, and filming is scheduled to begin in just a few weeks, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

As we previously reported, the decision to cast Lohan as the screen icon has drawn criticism from Rosie O'Donnell who recently said, "I feel very sorry for her. I think she needs a lot of time away. ... She's had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including SNL. She was out and not in rehearsal. I think she's not in a place to work."

Choices to play the role of Richard Burton have come down to Gossip Girl star Matthew Settle, Sean Maguire, and CSI hunk Craig Robert Young, but after watching the audition tapes last weekend, "Lindsay declared that none of the actors were the right fit and that she wanted to go to London to look for a possible Burton actor there," a production insider tells RadarOnline.com. "Lindsay is being an absolute nightmare about who should play Burton. She believes Matthew Settle is too old to play the role, and she wants a major A-list star to be her co-star. However, her salary for the role took up a major portion of the budget, and the Burton gig will likely only pay $200k, max. The producers don't need to get Lindsay's approval of who will play Richard Burton, but they want to keep her happy."

Making matters worse, is that filming is slated to begin in just a few short weeks, and they are no closer to signing an actor to play Burton.

"They are already in pre-production and it's very hard to conduct any rehearsals without the pivotal role of Richard Burton," the source says. "There is also cause for concern because Lindsay partied all night last week with Paris Hilton, Barron Hilton and Brandon Davis. All three, including Lindsay, have been arrested for DUI and/or drug charges previously. Lindsay shouldn't be out partying all night long, no good can come of that."

So will Lohan get her wish to jet across the pond to find her ideal Richard Burton? "Hell no!" The source says. "There just isn't any money in the budget, or time, to do so. The producers will try to land someone that Lindsay likes, but, if push comes to shove, they will just cast the role without her approval."

Aaaannndd of course I remember what it was as soon as I hit "comment". =o/
2. Someone mentioned something about possibly seeing evidence that Blo headed out to Cannes recently? Can anyone tell me where this was found/seen? It would't surprise me if she did try to sneak out on the dl, big old party over there ya' know.
Hmm....wonder what she'll lose this time (if she went) passport? $20k (since it was $10k in Hawaii-again, HA!)
And btw.......magmax, I'm lovin' rimcat as much as everyone else! Lol. Keep 'em coming! =p
QUUUUAAACCCKKKIIITTTYYY QUACK, QUACK, QUACK! BICH!!!!!!!


Ok, just for the record. I'm still reading through on the old thread and need some questions verified pls!? (I'll get to the answers once I get caught up! Lol)
1. The "mansion" (Ha! My house is almost 2500 sq ft, w/ 2 car gar, 3 bedrooms w/ a bonus room, 2 1/2 bath, all on just short of an acre. Only thing different is the pool. Bich! HA!) she is supposedly renting....someone said it's the guest house/servant house of the producer of this Lifetime movie's producer. Ok, that *was* just a joke right? That would be quite some sh!t right there if it were. Lol
2. AaaaNddd, now my poor demented mind has forgotten what my other thought/question I was going to ask soooo........guess I'll have to post again when I think of what it was.
*hangs head and walks out of thread in shame*
smdh...a mind is a terrible thing to lose! =o(

POOR HELP, RIP!

One of Lilo’s most misunderstood enabelers Help (me, I am an Idiot and can’t get up) has passed. What was thought to be of natural causes now looks like something else entirely? A video shot by a 7- Eleven security camera on South Figueroa St. clearly shows Linds clubbing to death Help with a pseudo Gucci bag of quarters right next to a putrid trash bin.

Lindsay said “Fvcking Help was giving away my trade secrets. She said Liz (all her friends call her Liz) smoked Salems! Help knew anagrams and revealed I smoked Males! She ruined my reputation!”

Hollenbeck Police said “Not our problem, we just moved the body over to Hollywood Sheriffs Jurisdiction, we are kinda busy and don’t need the grief, eh?”
