Just when I was about to say that this news day was slower than Ryan Lochte’s thought process, I come across this highly important video of a Great White Pussy chasing a duckling. I’m sure CNN will break into their regular broadcast to discuss this video in detail (I’m not joking). We can shut everything down, because it won’t get anymore newsworthy than this today.
“I was really put to the test to make the movie believable and iconic at the same time. And also, we’re talking Elizabeth Taylor and LindsayLohan, two woman who wear clothes very differently. I had to be inspired by Elizabeth Taylor, but flatter Lindsay Lohan…Lindsay was constantly watching Elizabeth Taylor movies. At the beginning of the day we’d have a fitted costume, but she’d completely change it at the last minute just because she was inspired by something else. Anytime something was going wrong, I’d just pull out more jewelry and say, ‘Look, something sparkly, something sparkly! That usually placated her.”
We all know LiLo has an affinity for jewelry, especially when they aren’t hers! Ha!
But, distracting Lindsay with diamonds wasn’t Perez’s only obstacle.
Once he signed on for the movie he started watching all of Taylor’s films, only to receive a letter from 20th Century Fox stating if any of the Liz & Dick costumes looked “even remotely close” to the originals, they would sue since they have visual rights.
So how did he do it? Perez explains:
“The dress and cape [Lindsay] wears in the Cleopatra scenes is inspired by the original piece, but it’s our own version of it. I found [the dress Lindsay wears] at a costume rental house. She has a little 23-inch waist, so she really fit into the period clothes.”
Despite all the hurdles Perez had to overcome, we think he did an fabulous job! Too bad the movie was panned…
Oh well, check out the pics (below) to see more of La Lohan’s inspired looks!
That’s because nothing about this says HBB. There’s no indicator AT ALL! It’s like going to a party wearing a straight jacket and asserting that you’re dressed as Gary Busey (we kid, we kid!)! Plus, sexualizing the costume of a kid just doesn’t seem right.
We’re glad she had a more recognizable costume ready to go (what happened to the last one?), which you can clearly see (below) is Robin. Though, maybe she’s going for a Honey Boo Boo’s-Secret-Identity-Is-Robin type of thing, in which we’re all for it!
