FIRST LOOK at Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor on the Set of 'Liz and Dick'

Leopard print swimwear, St Tropez tans and oversized cat eye sunglasses with a matching black bouffant? Yes, we’re talking about the very first on-set photos of Lindsay Lohan playing the iconic Elizabeth Taylor as filming begins on TV biopic 'Liz and Dick'.

Filming is underway in LA and takes us back to the Sixties with tons of fab retro fashion. Lindsay has a rumoured sixty-six outfits for the role (WOAH) and the gallery above gives us a glimpse of the floppy hats, pastel sundresses and muted colours that we can expect. And check out Grant Bowler as Richard Burton - you may recognise him from Ugly Betty and True Blood. Darn it, we were rooting for Clive Owen.

In one shot, the pair can be seen recreating the controversial but infamous paparazzi snap of Liz and Dick together on a yacht off the coast of Ichia in the Bay of Naples, Italy in June, 1962. At the time, they were both married but not to each other (Richard's then-wife was Sybil Williams while Liz was still married to Eddie Fisher).

Not one to shy away from Hollywood scandals herself, we can’t wait to see Lilo tackling the role. The scenes between the couple look pretty heated so here's hoping for a LOT of drama and a touch of steamy romance. The 25-year-old actress has dyed her reddish hair dark and she’s also set to wear a series of wigs. Isn't her resemblance to Elizabeth Taylor uncanny? Let us know your verdict below...
