Has she actually pulled it off? Lindsay Lohan captures turmoil of Liz Taylor's scandalous past in recreation of iconic Cleopatra scene



It is the most expensive film ever made, and a huge box office flop. 
But Cleopatra was the setting for Elizabeth Taylor to fall in love with Richard Burton, a happening christened 'le scandale' after the adulterous pair became the first ever tabloid sensation.

The juggernaut of attraction between Taylor and Burton amidst the over-spending and bickering on set destroyed the facade of old Hollywood and ushered in the era of access all areas celebrity gossip that we have today. 
Lindsay Lohan knows quite a bit about that, of course, and aptly enough, she's playing her icon in forthcoming Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, which tells the couple's story. 
And it's in the recreated Cleopatra scene, a time that was the most chaotic in Liz's life, that Lindsay looks most like the fabled raven beauty. 
The haunted look on her face captures the inner turmoil of the indigo-eyed goddess as her life fell apart and the rollercoaster ride with the love of her life began.

After falling for Burton, Taylor was denounced in the senate and criticised by the Vatican for 'erotic vagrancy,' which makes criticism of Lohan look like a series of gentle tuts in comparison. 
And unbelievable as it may seem, the debacle surrounding the bungled historical epic prompted many observers to declare Taylor's career dead in the water in the early '60s. 
 


    This was despite Cleopatra being the highest grossing film of 1963; as its gargantuan cost of $44 million meant the $26 million yield failed to even cover costs. 
    The four-hour film employed two directors, two separate casts, and needed two and a half years of on-and-off filming in England, Italy, Egypt, and Spain; it nearly destroyed Twentieth Century Fox. 
    But its place in legend was assured by a starring role in the epic love story.

    The film cultivated Taylor's 'difficult' reputation as there were whispers of a diva-like attitude, myriad costume changes and of course, that on-set attraction. 
    So it's appropriate that she should be played in the film by the 26-year-old, who has been as beset by controversy during filming as any other time in her tumultuous short life. 
    After Liz and Dick left their husband and wife to be together, they married twice and made the classic Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? as well as some awful duds.
    But despite being engulfed by scandal and enjoying a booze-sodden see-saw romance with the roaring Welshman, Taylor remained a prosperous A list star until her death. 
    Could this have a prescience for Lindsay? 
    This film will tell us so, for if she charms us - or even proves interesting - on screen, it's likely the fascination with this wild child, Taylor's heir in so many ways, will continue. 
    The film will air on the cable channel this autumn.

    Did Lindsay Lohan trash Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra love nest? Actress and film company in firing line over wrecked trailer


    Makers of Liz & Dick and the film's star Lindsay Lohan have been accused of trashing the dressing room trailer where Elizabeth Taylor's romance with Richard Burton started.
    The 'love nest' was apparently wrecked while it was on loan to Silver Screen Pictures, with photos showing cigarette burns on fabric, furniture and even a portrait of Taylor. Dishes, mirror and glass were broken.
    Angel Alger bought the lavishly decorated 38-foot travel trailer for $50,000 using her life savings in June.

    But a month later, after loaning it to the production company for the Lifetime TV movie, Alger says she discovered it had been ruined - and that items were missing.
     



      'I was specifically told that it would come back in pristine condition and in even better condition than it was at that time,' Alger told CNN.

      She estimated the damage is in the region of at least $100,000 - and claims an antique European rocking chair that Taylor sat in after filming was taken.
      'I did not get to enjoy using the lavish French phone that she used or even her personal hair brush that probably still had some of her hair in it,' she went on.

      Furthermore, Alger has pointed the finger at Lindsay Lohan - based on studio employee's comment to her that the actress and her friends had access to it each night after filming.
      Alger said: 'Only a psychotic and rebellious person or people would steal irreplaceable museum belongings and leave it in this vandalised condition.'
      However, she says she has no evidence to prove it was Lohan.

      Her spokesman Steve Honig denied Lindsay had anything to do with it: 'This has nothing to do with Lindsay,'  he told CNN. 'You should ask the producers about it.'
      Liz & Dick executive producer Larry Thompson did not return phone calls to CNN when contacted yesterday. His assistant said he was busy editing the movie.
      An insurance representative from the studio met with Alger to tour the trashed trailer in early August, but she claims the matter is still not resolved.

      Back in 1963 Fox Studios spent $75,000 (which is worth around $500,000 today) to create a suite fit for the queen Taylor was playing in Cleopatra.
      She took filming breaks in the trailer with co-star Burton, set between roman columns with walls and ceilings handpainted in the style of Cleopatra's era.
      Liz & Dick is set to air on the Lifetime channel on November 3.

      The behind-the-scenes video that reveals just how much the photographers airbrushed Lady Gaga's new Vogue cover



      That a magazine cover star is airbrushed to flawless perfection goes without saying. 
      But a new behind-the-scenes video from the shoot for the current Lady Gaga cover has revealed just how much work went into making the singer look the way she did.
      The finished image, which appeared on Vogue's September issue, showed Gaga with an exaggerated hourglass shape in a gown by Marc Jacobs.

      Hourglass silhouette: Lady Gaga looks sensational in her vase-like Marc Jacobs gown on Vogue's September cover (left) - a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot shows how different the reality looked on set (right)
      But that extraordinary silhouette was not simply thanks to the voluminous midsection of the dress. It seems the airbrush had a heavy hand in creating it too.
      While the singer is slender by anyone's standards, the behind-the-scenes video shows her with a more proportional waist size, Buzzfeed has observed.
       


        Her face also appears to have been narrowed in the final image, her arms slimmed and her décolletage more angular.
        The lower part of the dress, which narrows before it kicks out into a fishtail hem, has also been slimmed to a point that makes it seem as though Gaga's knees barely exist at all.
        Lady Gaga

        Artistic license: That extraordinary silhouette on the cover was not simply thanks to the voluminous midsection of the dress. It seems Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott's airbrush had a heavy hand in creating it too
        Lady Gaga
        Behind-the-scenes: The singer's unairbrushed clear skin and slender figure can be seen in the shoot video
        It is worth noting, of course, that the image was shot by famed fashion photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, who are known for a highly creative and polished style, and the retouching work on the image would have been by their team, rather than Vogue.
        Gaga has been made to look like a candlestick, or vase, in this instance - it is intentional, and not designed to be realistic.
        The comparison does however shed light on how much licence glossy magazines take with the airbrush, and raises questions about the unrealistic body image ideas that they portray.
        Louise Chunn, editor of Psychologies magazine, explained in an interview earlier this year: ‘All glossy magazines retouch cover images. 
        'Photographers generally wouldn’t release an untouched image. They want to deliver the best possible picture, and the celebrity or model wants that, too.'

        The A-Z of autumn's hottest trends: We've got the season covered from Anna Karenina to Zoology





        A... is for Anna Karenina 

        Expect a Russian revolution on the High Street this autumn thanks to Valentino's beautiful homage to folk dresses, rich with intricate pattern and embellishment, and Alice Temperley's fabulous military great coats, ornate with frogging and topped with Cossack-style fur hats. See Keira Knightley pull off the look on the big screen when she plays Anna Karenina in British director Joe Wright's new adaptation of the Tolstoy classic.

        B... is for Bejewelled 

        The new season is dripping with dazzling metallic and baroque details. At Prada coats and tunics ar e covered in chunky Perspex beads; duchesse satin skirts are lush with sequined flowers at Dior, while Louis Vuitton coats feature 3D patterns in hologram beading. Get the look by adding a jewelled collar necklace to a colourful knit - Asos has a suitably ornate version for £185.
         


          C... is for Chinoiserie 

          Dries Van Noten scoured the archives at the V&A to produce a collection based on Korean, Japanese and Chinese silks. Proenza Schouler reworked oriental silks into cool bombers and mini skirt suits, while Jason Wu plundered traditional Qing Dynasty silks and embroideries. On the High Street, try this graphic tube dress from Topshop (£60).

          D... is for Downton 

          The Crawleys are about to return to our screens and the fashion world is paying suitable homage to everyone's favourite slice of Sunday night escapism. Tweeds and Argyle socks, Fair Isle knits and hacking jacket s al l appeared on the autumn catwalks, notably at Ralph Lauren where the designer even played John Lunn's Downton soundtrack.

          E... is for Equestrian 

          Saddle up and trot on - all things horsey are in the spotlight as riding attire inspires designers from Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy to Gucci's Frida Giannini. It's more sexy dressage than shires gymkhana - think leather jodhpurs, dramatic highwayman capes, long silk scarves tied high on the neck and knee high boots.
          On trend: From left, knee-high boots will be en vogue thanks to the equestrian look, deep red lips will be a make-up staple while Grace Coddington will release her memoirs

          F... is for Femme Fatale

          Glamour goes dark and mysterious this season with designers opting for nude make-up punctuated with deep red lips. At Gucci, make-up artist Pat McGrath opted for a dark cherry lip colour - try Revlon's Black Cherry (£7.29).

          G... is for Grace 

          She upstaged Anna Wintour in the brilliant U.S. Vogue documentary The September Issue and is a living fashion legend. This November, Brit-born stylist Grace Coddington will spill the beans on her rise to the top of the fashion business in her memoirs, which were sold to Random House for a rumoured £750,000. Expect fabulous insider fashion secrets and a riveting read that spans the former model's six-decade career.

          H... is for High Street Hysteria 

          H&M's latest collaboration is perhaps their most conceptual yet with Maison Martin Margiela - look out for back-to-front clothes, trailing hems and maybe even a horse-hoof boot or two.

          I... is for iPad Case 

          There's barely a designer who hasn't cottoned on to the profit boosting appeal of the patterned, printed or perfectly plain iPad case and the High Street has caught on to the trend too. Reiss's Corina case is in ruched faux leather and can double-up as a chic clutch (£95).

          J... is for Jacquard 

          Rich metallic jacquards and brocades, as seen at Jonathan Saunders, are bringing a shot of luxe lushness to the new season - Zara's burnished gold geometric jacquard trousers have a flattering slim cut and look great worn with a crisp white shirt or when contrasted with dramatic.

          K... is for Cool Knits 

          Jumpers have never been so desirable - young London designers from Jonathan Saunders to Christopher Kane have reinvented the humble knit with intense colours and eye-popping geometric patterns.

          L... is for Leather 

          Leather will be the material of choice for trend-setters this autumn - choose from glossy black shifts and cool bombers, chic capes or the plainest pencil skirt. The High Street has some great leather jackets - try All Saints' Oxblood leather biker (£350) or this supersoft washed leather black jacket with quilted sleeves from Karen Millen (£325).

          M... is for Midas Touch 

          After the Olympic gold rush comes a fashion gold rush with ornate baroque adornment bringing shimmer and shine to the dark days of autumn. Try Zara's gold sequin cardigan (£119), over a white T-shirt and jeans or khaki trousers.

          N... is for New Guard 

          All eyes will be on Paris come October when Hedi Slimane finally unveils his first full collection for the relaunched Saint Laurent Paris. He will have some competition for the limelight - Raf Simons will be revealing his first ready-to-wear collection for Christian Dior in the same week, while Phoebe Philo will return from maternity leave with another collection for Celine.

          O... is for Optical Prints 

          Embrace autumn's most dazzling geometric prints as seen at Kenzo, Prada, Versus and Miu Miu. On the catwalks the prints were worn head-to-toe in dazzling pant suits, or follow Stella McCartney's lead with an all-in-one - Reiss's silk Duffy jumpsuit (£265) will ensure you stand out from the crowd.

          P... is for Peplum 

          The peplum's reign continues on crisp pencil skirts, jackets and cocktail dresses. Combine one with a print in Hobbs's gorgeous water-colour floral Caravaggio dress (£199).

          Q... is for Queen's Jewels 

          There 's still time to celebrate the Queen's jubilee year and wonder at her serious collection of rocks at Diamonds: A Jubilee Celebration. The show features gems from the past 200 years of British monarchs and runs at Buckingham Palace until October 7.

          R... is for Red 

          The most dazzling shade to wear this winter will be pillarbox red - try an eye-popping coat or a crisp form-fitting dress like this scoop-back peplum dress from H&M (£29.99).

          S... is for Super Snapper 

          Tim Walker's fantastical and often eccentric fashion photography and portraits will be the focus of an exhibition at Somerset House opening in October. An accompanying book is published by Thames & Hudson (£45).

          T... is for Tinseltown 

          See more than 100 iconic Hollywood movie costumes up close from sumptuous period dramas such as Dangerous Liaisons to much-loved classics including Some Like It Hot and Breakfast at Tiffany's. From October 20 until January 27 at the V&A in London. 

          U... is for Uncorked 

          Bordeaux, claret or deepest burgundy - autumn's new shades are all rather boozy sounding. Wear the colour head-to-toe as seen at Haider Ackermann. On the High Street Banana Republic has great takes on this look including this claret wrap coat (£175).

          V... is for Valentino 

          The Italian couturier may have retired almost five years ago but he's not going quietly - his latest exhibition, which will be held at Somerset House, will display never seen before personal artefacts as well as iconic pieces including Jackie Kennedy's wedding dress. 

          W... is for Waist Cinchers 

          The waist is back in focus as designers exaggerate curves with stand-out belts - from Joseph Altuzarra's wide leather Berber bands to Karl Lagerfeld's sculptural corset belts in leather and ponyskin for Fendi. Wear over coats and suits or a fluffy fur jacket as seen at DKNY. The black leather Marisa peplum belt at Hobbs (£99) ticks two trends at once.

          X... is for XXL

          Exaggerated shoulders, giant cocooning coats and pumped up volumes, seen on the Chloe catwalk, are bringing supersize proportions to the new season. Handle this trend with care - or extreme caution.

          Y... is for Yayoi Kusama 

          Louis Vuitton 's collaboration with the polka-dot-crazed Japanese pop artist continues this autumn with the second instalment having landed at Selfridges last week. Get the look with J Crew's fabulous dotty knits in merino wool or cashmere. 

          Z... is for Zoology 

          Lion-head belts at Lanvin, animal knits at Altuzarra, Kenzo and Burberry and wild wooly monsters at Mulberry; the fashion world has gone animalmad this season. The easiest way to channel the mood though is with an animal print. Try the Dotty Cheetah print dress at Whistles (£95).
