Lindsay Lohan ditched Elizabeth Taylor for Veronica Lake tonight.
At the red-carpet premiere of Liz & Dick at the Beverly Hills Hotel, Lohan went for old-Hollywood glamour in a slinky ivory slip dress, her long hair wavy and parted on the side, à la Kim Basinger in L.A. Confidential.
Who, if you remember, was supposed to look like 1940s-era femme fatale Veronica Lake. (Tip of the hat to famous redhead Rita Hayworth, too, of course.)
Her full-length gown also featured three diamond-shaped cutouts down the middle (perhaps a nod to the diamond-adoring Taylor) each accented with a red jewel that highlighted Lohan's gleaming auburn locks and ruby red lips.
All she would have needed was a fur stole to complete the screen siren look, but...you know how PETA can be.
Perhaps the traffic getting from Burbank, where she taped The Tonight Show With Jay Leno this afternoon, to Beverly Hills was rough, because Lohan hit the carpet about an hour later than scheduled. Lucky for her, she didn't seem to miss a step once she was there.
Liz & Dick premieres Nov. 25 on Lifetime.
