On the heels of her recent arrest, new promotional art for Lindsay Lohan’s highly anticipated comeback role as Elizabeth Taylor has arrived. A new poster for “Liz & Dick” featuring Lindsay hit the Internet today and it’s dripping with awesomeness.
In the image, Lindsay poses in a black patterned dress. She wears ruby lipstick and matching diamonds.
Lindsay has one hand on her stomach and the other on her breast in the shot, channeling every bit of 1960s elegance.
But, other than the wardrobe and headline “Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor," the one sheet reads like a typical LiLo story…
Next to her image, bolded text seems to highlight the low points of her career:
“Controversial love affair, diamonds, provocative, scandal, tabloid front page, child star, paparazzi…”
With bullet points like these, anyone that doubted Lindsay’s ability to pull off “Liz” can rest assured now… She’s just playing HERSELF.
"I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor,” Lindsay said at the time she was first cast. "She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role."
The made for TV film is scheduled for a November 3, 2012 release date on the Lifetime Channel.
Meanwhile, Lindsay’s been the target of some real life scandal…
The actress was arrested on Wednesday morning for allegedly striking a pedestrian with her Porsche SUV.
Lindsay was pulling in to park at the Dream Hotel in downtown New York City, when she reportedly clipped a pedestrian. She was arrested and booked for fleeing the scene of an accident.
She has since been released with a desk ticket.
