Lindsay Lohan in New York City

Posted on May 04, 2012

Oh, what the hell. Let’s pay a little attention to her. She’s trying so hard, after all.



Isabel Marant ‘Esso’ Cotton Jacket

Prada Leopard Platform Pumps

The internet cracked in half last month at the news that Lindsay Lohan will be the only actress ever allowed to play Elizabeth Taylor unto the end of time or something. We thought it sounded like a lot of tsuris over a Lifetime movie. We’ll stick with our plea to Hollywood to cast Winslet and Craig as Taylor and Burton. We want to see Kate done up in full Cleopatra drag. That’d be a hoot.

Anyway, Lindsay. The very high point of our blogging career was when we got to see her drunkenly stumble right past us on the way out of a party, after air-kissing Donatella Versace. No, really. That actually happened. In our very non-expert opinion, she looks a lot cleaner these days than she did back then. We’re all going to collectively hold our breath for her, it seems, no matter what she does. Say what you will about her talents and her personal life, the girl’s a star, whether we all agree that should be the case or not. She simply refuses to fade away and the public clearly doesn’t want her to. Might as well start giving her work again to see if she can pull an audience.

As for this getup, it’s fine. She looks comfy and warm. The sash on the jacket is oddly placed, though. And we’re not huge fans of animal print shoes, but they do tend to bring a little fun and style to the look.

This concludes the Lindsay Lohan and name-dropping portions of our program. Talk amongst yourselves.

    I worried that she took a tumble or turned her ankle, walking on the bricks in that first picture. She looks fine.

    • Cheetah hooves

      • schadenfreudelicious

        my thoughts exactly, never have i seen a shoe look more like a hoof than in that last pic…..

  • nancylee61

    Well, she does look cleaner than she had. I just don’t see it sticking though. From her teeth, she either smoked crack or took meth, and neither of those are easy to give up without hardcore rehab and sticking with some kind of support group. Maybe she is, I hope so, because I think she was an incredibly talented, lovely young lady before she threw it all away for drugs.

  • She looks a lot healthier than usual, at least, and I like the outfit except for that odd white gauzy…thing?

    • suz72350

      I’m wondering what that gauzy white thing is, too.  it looks strange poking out of the bottom of her jacket.

    • suz72350

    • I think that must be her shirttails.

  • JosephLamour

    Itd look better if the sleeves were pushed up, and the top underneath wasnt visible. She looks like she’s bathed though, so thats a plus.

  • Ozski

    I’m just glad she is slowly going back to the hair color she was born with. Now, to deflate those lips. Oh, and the shoes are cute on her.

    • THIS. So glad that the fried white hair is almost gone. Now, let’s get Nicole Kidman to spill the digits of that doctor that’s unfreezing her face, shall we?

    • mmc

      Ha!  First thing I noticed!  Hair color = much better!

    • RedRaven617

      Yup, I agree. Those lips look like they hurt.

  • She looks a lot better now that she’s not showering in peroxide every morning.

    • Funkykatt

      I’d like to add another ‘like’ to your comment, Barbara. 

  • butterflysunita

    She looks so much better with her lovely red hair back.  

  • Scott Lichtman

    The public DOES want her to fade away.  People like you keep giving her text and web space.  Did you SEE her on SNL?  Horrible.  She needs to go away.  She keeps kicking and clawing to stay in the lime light and you keep giving her the spot light.

    • Sobaika Mirza

      The fact that she was recently on SNL (and the high ratings she scored) indicates people want to see her. They may want to see her fail, they may want to see her succeed, but they want to see her. I’m as over her as you seem to be, but I don’t think you can blame it on a blogger, especially TLo. I see her much more often on other sites than here.

    • julnyes

       your tone seems very pointed.

      • Celandine1

        You my dear get a WERQ for the lol you just  gave me. I miss seeing that puking queen on TV every week. 

    • NC_Meg

      Some people do want to see her fade way, yes. However, I think some people DO want to see her get it back together and make more movies, just like people were pulling for Britney. America loves a comeback. And I’m with Sobaika, TLo almost never posts about her so I think they’re hardly to blame for her staying in the limelight. They never post about the Kardashians but they sure as hell won’t go away.

    • joe_tey83

       I do want her to fade away. Or at least really focus on getting better before taking jobs.

      And, TLo hardly blogs about her all that much.

    • I’m glad to see someone deciding to represent “the public.” In the future, when I need to consult “the public,” I’ll know I can just come to you!

  • Damnit, DoublePost, why you gotta be hatin’ on me?

  • Rand Ortega

    Hopefully Scorsese will still make his version– He owns the rights to “Furious Love”. Though Gerard Butler & Megan Fox are at the top of my wish list to play Liz & Dick. Mind you, Kate can do anything, but Daniel Craig just doesn’t have the passion or the voice for Burton.

    • rawrgrowlrawr

       Megan Fox is not fabulous enough to play Liz!

    • alyce1213

      I’m with you 100% on Gerard Butler – perfect!  But Megan Fox just doesn’t have he acting chops.

      • sweetestsith

         Which is a shame, because I feel like she could have the attitude… but then she’d forget her lines and make duck face or something.

        …is that too mean? Sometimes I can’t tell.

    •  Megan Fox couldn’t pull off half of Liz Taylor’s charisma — the girl is a screen void.

  • MzzPants

    Hope she can keep her shit together.  She used to be a beautiful girl.

  • Rand Ortega

    Re: Lindsay. Cleaner but surgeried to DEATH! She’s not even 30 & already she looks like the product of Rose McGowan & Joan Rivers having a baby.

  •  She will be back.  She will get her act together.  In twenty years, I see her on the stage, with a Tony! 

    •  I’m always hoping she’ll be the female RDJ and finally get herself clean.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Coulda shoulda woulda…the only thing I ever saw her in was the Love Bug remake – and she was fresh and adorable and could have done anything and been anything.  Another child star whose parents did more to distroy her than the media or public ever did. Anyhoo… while it can be entertaining (and disturbing) to watch the fall, it is usually just distrubing to watch a public rebound attempt.  Wish she could find love and happiness in obscurity and live a happy life ever after…

    • Sobaika Mirza

      Are you saying you haven’t seen Mean Girls?

      • HomeOfficeGirl

        Nope.  Way too old for that genre!!  I grew up with the Brat Pack!!  
        I know it’s supposed to be the same thing – good kids vs. assholes in an epic battle for teenage acceptance.  But somehow (for me) the 80’s versions were sweeter, more innocent, less crass.  I never wanted to be a mean girl or a pretty little liar or a gossip girl – those were shitty types of people to be back in the day.

        • RedRaven617

          You haven’t see the Parent Trap? 

          • HomeOfficeGirl

            Haha!  No!!  There was an original to that too… with Hailey Mills.  No need to see a remake.  I’m sure it was wonderful! 😉

          • alyce1213

            The remake of The Parent Trap was quite good with a very appealing cast (Natasha Richardson, Dennis Quaid, etc). Remakes don’t usually measure up to the original, but this one does. 
            Lindsay was remarkably good in it;  definitely worth seeing.  
            Perhaps you should withhold opinion until you do.

          • NC_Meg

             I agree. The original was one of my favorite movies growing up but I like the remake a lot. I definitely recommend it.

        • grouchywif

           I was a Brat Packer too. (Long live the Breakfast Club.)

          That said, I’ve seen Mean Girls and I think that it is a completely different kind of movie, even considering Heathers. More tongue in cheek and more cartoonish and light-hearted than Heathers, but still portraying an element of truth that any girl who survived high school will recognize.

          Lindsay was great in that, btw, and I think it is a shame that her personal life has been such a hot mess because she did show potential.

          • terekirkland

            Not to take anything away from Mean Girls, since it’s the script that’s so damn good, and Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried are wonderful… But IMO Lindsay’s performance was not stellar or anything. Her shoes could have been filled by any other starlet that age.

            Except Lacey Chabert. 😉

        • Sobaika Mirza

          Oh, the movie definitely doesn’t glorify mean girls. Which is funny, because right after that movie began Lindsay’s big descent…

          Anyway, I think it’s a fun watch. I want Tina Fey to work on more film scripts after 30 Rock.

          • HomeOfficeGirl

            Hmm… ok, so I should not judge a book by it’s cover.  Maybe I will check it out.  I do LOVE Tina Fey also!!

          • HazellC

            You definitely don’t need to be a teenager to enjoy Mean Girls. It’s a great film.

          • NC_Meg

             I didn’t see it until I was in my 20s and I love it. It’s hilarious. If you like Tina, you’ll probably like it. (Plus, as it seems with anything starring an SNL alum, you get other SNL alumni. Tim Meadows and Ana Gasteyer have small parts.)

  • YoungSally

    I like the Chanel shopping bag with the Chanel purse….just in case anyone questions the authenticity of the purse…”Look I paid for it!!!”

  • jw_ny

    I really hope she does Liz justice.  Liz is such an iconic Hollywood legend and her memory deserves a top notch performance.  Lindsey…well…we all know, what more is there to say.  Such a big role is a huge risk for her, even though it’s just a Lifetime movie…many eyes will be on her and 1/2 of them want to see her fail.  I’m one that wants her to nail it, and I’m not even a fan of hers.

  • Sara__B

    The thumbnail photo looks like Nicole Kidman, but Nicole is a full 20 years older than Lindsay. Stop messing with your face, Lindsay, and let your hair be it’s natural, gorgeous, dark red! Please?

  • Worth it for the air-kissing anecdote.  On that note, I do wish this kid would pull it together.

  • piecesofconfetti

    Not a fan of that jacket. It looks a little too 80s to me.

  • Glammie

    She looks sooo much better as a redhead than as a blonde.  I’m glad someone mistook her for Deborah Harry.  I think that may have stuck.  She does look healthier and I like the yellow scarf.   

    The shoes look ridiculous with the rest of the outfit.    Too much.  But overall with LiLo, I just wonder if she’ll stay clean.  Robert Downey Jr. and Drew Barrymore both came out of bad periods, maybe LiLo will too.  Addiction’s a bitch though.

    • mstzilla

       I had to look that up – the paparazzi mistook Debbie Harry for LiLo. Too funny! Although Debbie Harry still looks wonderful, she IS 66. (Not sure it was a compliment to Debbie to be mistaken for LiLo either.)

      • terekirkland

         Yeah, it was probably being mistaken for Donatella Versace that stuck. 😉

      • Glammie

        Yeah, after years with that bleached straw mane, LiLo went to red within the week.  I notice her roots are showing.  Red’s a high-maintenance color–so her current red is the red overlaid on the straw-colored stuff.  Even so, she looks less deathlike closer to her natural color.

  • Lina_bee

    She can keep the butterscotch scarf and the shoes. The rest needs to go. Re everything else: her people are freaking brilliant because I don’t want to be interested in how she’s doing, and yet I am. I want to cheer her on and that baffles me! Misplaced maternal instincts, maybe…

  • Ennovi_R

    I hate the yellow jacket- actually nevermind- hate the entire outfit. :/

    • BrooklynBomber

      Yeah, that’s one ugly jacket, isn’t it?

  • grouchywif

    I’ll be glad when the fake hair thing is over, but I am beginning to wonder if it will ever end.

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      but her fake hair looks nice!

      • rowsella

        I don’t think it looks nice– her roots are outgrown.  I like the red color but seriously, A-list celebs are expected to keep up a certain level of maintenance.

  • lilazander

    She looks so old for her actual age, botoxed and worn out, that I can only imagine her playing Liz T. in her older years prior to her death. I am tired of seeing her fish lips and with the rate she is going with the cosmetic “improvemets” on her face, she is going to look like Lara Flynn Boyle’s twin (and she’s already close). As for her clothes, well, I have never liked her skanky style. This particular number is a schmata upon schmata finished with Payless shoes. Just an unappealing combination on a more unapealling person.

  • Funkykatt

    I’d like to see Katy Perry and her ex-husband play Liz and Dick instead. It could be a musical too with Katy’s fab contralto. 

  • I’ve got my fingers crossed for her. I’ve never been a big fan, but I do want her to keep her life together. Anyone with parents as horrible as hers has my sympathy.  She’s looking much better these days, glad she toned down her hair color.

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    once upon a time this girl was one of the very prettiest in hollywood [jessica beal cough hack. oh please]. then she let her interest in miserable substances take over &, along w/ that interest & those substances, the overtendency for all of it to annihilate common sense. which went straight–not to her head–but to her face. which commenced its dissolving & propping up at a rate unknown to almost anyone whose despairing insecurities were not paired w/ the last name jackson. ah well.

    i know too much about miserable substances & their pull to have much hope. but maybe there is some. the one day at a time thing really does work, even out of program [if one can keep it up]. & she has so much for which, you know, to potentially live. way more than most of us. not that that ever means much. anyway.

    edited to add:
    ibid, below or above, about the parents. almost the same for katy perry too.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Is there anything else to say?

  • Anathema_Device

    She needs to give up on playing Taylor and play Ann-Margret instead.

  • OmegaMu

    I just want to reach in and pull her hair out from under her scarf.  That is seriously bugging me!

  • MilaXX

    eh, it looks like a real people outfit. It’s probably not, but I don’t mind it so much. As for Lilo’s life and career. Whatever. I hope she stays clean, because I wouldn’t wish ill on anyone, but she’s not really an actress I watch either for success or the trainwreck factor.

  • Bill Curtis

    Poor thing has a hard enough time playing herself.  She needs to get that down before she tries someone else.


  • PeaceBang

    Expensive tackiness head to toe. 

  • alyce1213

    The only effort I see is dying her hair back to red.  Other that that, still unkempt, tacky, and unflattering, especially the shoes, jeggings and jacket. Well, that’s just about everything.

  • marilyn

    She looks better than she has in a long time.  I like her best with this haricolor.

  • girliecue

    Like the jacket, but unfortunately on Lindsay it brings to mind a straitjacket. Every time I see her – even as unrecognizable as she has become – for a flash of a moment I see that cute, talented little girl in The Parent trap and can’t help hoping she’ll find her way. 

    And then the moment is gone and I just wish she’d go away.

  • I read a great tweet that sent something like this-“Lindsey Lohan has been chosen to play Elizabeth Taylor in a biopic.  Now all they need is to cast someone for a young Elizabeth Taylor.”  Hilarious and ’nuff said about THAT decision.

  • CatherineRhodes

    Is the “work” she’s done to her face permanent or will it wear off? Because a) it looks awful, and b) she can’t move her face to squeeze out any emotion if she’s planning to act. 

    • TieDye64

      I really hate what she’s done to her face. If I had a face like hers (used to be) I certainly wouldn’t want to eff it up, and it’d be a damn shame if any of it were permanent. It’s so strange to say “remember when she was pretty?” while realizing she’s only what, 25?  

  • kimmeister

    I own three pairs of animal print shoes and love them all.

    • v

      Me, too! I LOVE animal print shoes! Specifically, black and white zebra stripes. 🙂

  • Ted

    Mean Girls is seriously the most quotable movie on social media. I mean, after that many years and teenagers still work references from that movie into everything. And the script by Tina Fey is, by no surprise, excellent and sharp as hell. 

  • guest2visits

    It’s a fun little outfit. But why does she always look a little puffy and red like she just had an injection?

  • ccm800

    Maybe she wont fade away because blogg…oh never mind. 

  • Lisa

    From the waist down – adorable.  Love the skinny jeans (although they’d look better in a darker rinse) and the leopard print shoes.  From the waist up – overly big, bunchy bag lady.

    And I wouldn’t get too upset over Lilo playing La Liz.  That won’t wind up happening – she can’t keep her shit together long enough.  Just like she’s no longer playing Linda Lovelace, she won’t ever wind up playing Liz.

  • Vaniljekjeks

    Maybe a bit cleaner… but she must be the same age as me…  she looks at least 20 years older.  

  • bellafigura1

    I can’t help but wonder, every time I see her, how does she pay for all this stuff?  Her rehab-medical bills/legal bills/few jobs/reputation management — all that must cost a lot of money.  Are people still giving her free clothes?  Hard to believe Miuccia is throwing LiLo $1000 pumps …

  • greyhoundgirl

    She looks healthier–but her face is disturbing and I hope she leaves it alone for awhile.  And I have to know, from those of you more educated in fashion than I–are those shoes real fur?

    • LambeeBaby

       I think that they are pony by the looks of them. So yes, real fur.

      • judybrowni

        “Calf hair” — so, if you’ve ever eaten veal…

  • TieDye64

    Not really digging the 80’s style jacket and I’ve never been a fan of the jegging, but all in all it’s a decent casual look. It always amazes me that LiLo and my daughter are only a year apart in age. Looks more like 20 yrs.

  • sleah_in_norcal

    may i take a moment to appreciate the work of the photographer in framing this shot?  (the second photo)  the blue to black background with the amber windows almost lining up with the amber to yellow tones in her hair, jacket and scarf, with the accent of the shoes.  lovely.  as for lilo, i do think she looks better here, and we all know i’m a sucker for a redhead, so i always am glad to see coverage on her.  and of course i’m thrilled with the current hair color.  i hope she doesn’t keep the black if and when she does play liz.  strange casting there, i can’t see any resemblance between them.  daniel craig as richard burton, now there’s a good idea.  not sure who i’d choose for liz, at least someone with naturally black hair and light eyes.  those black dye jobs almost always turn me off if the girl doesn’t have the coloring to support it.  i love that yellow jacket, and it’s great with lindsay’s coloring.  i like it better when it’s not on her, though, the way she has it tied looks all sloppy, and what is that white crap hanging down from underneath?  seems like poor lilo just has to fuck it up somehow.   

  • Lindsey stop stop stop STOP with the botox and the pillow lips for crissake. You’re a lovely young lady and this BS just makes you LOOK OLD.  Yes, seriously, paralysing your face and injecting your lips makes you look indistinguishable from the thousands of California women between the ages of 20 & 60 who do this shit.  STOP.  JUST STOP. 

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    I didn’t know pegleg pants could hide an ankle bracelet.  But nevertheless, she looks, as my Uncle Bill used to say: “Rode hard and put away wet.”
