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.

Who is she trying to fool? There is no comparison between the green dress pictures. On the left you have Lindsay looking like a "Crack head" and on the right you got Liz Taylor looking very elegant.

There is no way in hell Lindsay can pull this roll off convincingly. Especially, with her sub par acting skills.

Lindsay Lohan looks NOTHING like Elizabeth Taylor! She can wear costumes, wig and makeup, and she will STILL be physically wrong for the part. Elizabeth Taylor was a world-renowned beauty. Lohan is pretty, but she is in no way in the same league as Elizabeth Taylor in the looks department.

Everyone is focusing on the difference in looks...that can be changed...BUT, what are they goung to do about the difference in voices? Liz spoke in a softspoken high pitched voice. Lindsay speaks in a loud, low pitched gravely voice. Are they going to use a voice double? How believable can it be with Lindsay's gruff smokers voice?

What a disrespectful thing for Hollywood to do, cast Lohan as Liz. She cannot hold a candle to Liz, not her beauty, talent, or grace.

Maybe Taylor wasn't a saint but she didn't look this worn out at 25 years of age either. Lindsay looks bad in the face, like too many drinks and drug look. Just what age is she playing Taylor? She looks like a worn out 50 year old in play dresses.

The fact that Lindsay is playing Liz in a TV movie is a TOTAL joke and insult to Liz's memory. Megan Fox would be a much better choice. I hope that the Lindsay "bottoms out" in one way or another and is finally axed for the movie.

One of two things is going on if Blohan has 'final say' on the wardrobe. Either they can't afford a 'real'/professional wardrobe person or this is DUIna LYING again to tmz. On second thought, its BOTH!

This is such a sad story. How on earth did these movie makers think it would be good to cast Lindsay? Horrible choice. I have a feeling this movie will bomb, and ONLY because of the casting choice.

Kathy Ireland who is decorating the mansion Lindsay is supposedly "renting" was a friend of Elizabeth Taylor. Elizabeth tweeted Kathy from her hospital bed.

???Final say on wardrobe? LMAO.

That first shot does not remotely resemble a period dress. It's also totally budget.


The second shot IS a consignment store!

BTW, any news on who has been cast as Dick?

In 2009, Elizabeth Taylor also joined the Twitter revolution. During a stay in hospital, she tweeted to Kathy Ireland: "Thanks Darling for the beautiful flowers and all the prayers. Now can you just get my puppy past security?"

the real diva    

how can someone with no class be playing a legend with class? they should have got someone else to play liz. i for one will not be watching the movie.
i'm sure not many people will be watching it. unless Lindseys few "friends" i mean "fans" . tune in. if they are sober enough to watch it. or i'm sure Lindsays favorite court judge, and her lawyer will tune in.. ..
the money she makes from it won't last either. i see her on a drinking binge once filming stops

As I'm a little late, per usual, so I'm playing catch up. Zeph made a comment to someone that it was RW giving everyone a 'hate' mark. Zeph said its the 'next poster' but RW is not there. Did they 'delete' him? Again?
