From dawn until dusk: The shoot went on until the evening as Lindsay was put to work


For fans of Hollywood's Golden Age, there is understandably no comparison. 
But Lindsay Lohan today again attempted to emulate one of most legendary actress from the era, Elizabeth Taylor, as filming for her biopic continued.
Dressed in a 70s style floppy hat and a sunshine yellow kaftan, Lohan, 25,  boarded a luxury yacht in Los Angeles for day two of shooting TV biopic Liz & Dick, about Taylor's turbulent romance with fellow actor Richard Burton.

Lohan did her best to match her screen idol's glamorous style - but the image was spoilt somewhat as she puffed on a cigarette rather inelegantly during breaks.

The boat has reportedly been built to replicate Taylor and Richard Burton's romantic trip to the Bay of Naples in Italy in 1965.
In between shots, Lohan was handed fictional magazine Epoque, and appears in one scene to lounge while reading the fashion glossy. 
The actress appears to have fully embraced the role, despite critics blasting the choice of casting. 
She is reported to have dyed her hair to play Taylor, but will instead wear a series of wigs.

Her face shielded by large sunglasses and a floppy hat, ears adorned with orange Seventies-style hoops, her look today was reminiscent of Taylor's image during the early days of her career.
It marked one of several vintage style outfits Lohan has worn on set.
Earlier this week, she was photographed wearing a leopardskin retro leopardskin swimsuit for scenes with Bowler on a yacht; but in scenes yesterday suffered an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction when her neckline slipped to reveal her breast.

No stranger to scandal herself, Taylor met Burton while filming Cleopatra in 1962 and began a romance even though she was still married to Eddie Fisher while Burton was wed to Sybil Williams.
The couple has been described as having one of the greatest love affairs of the 20th century, living out a turbulent relationship in the public eye.
They first married from 1964 to 1974 and briefly went their seperate ways. They married again in 1975, but their second union only lasted a year, and they divorced again in 1976.

Welsh-born actor Burton died of a brain haemorrhage in 1984, aged just 58.
The Lifetime Television movie marks Lohan's first lead role since her flop Labor Pains in 2009.
The actress previously voiced her excitement at playing Taylor, who died of congestive heart failure last year.
She said in a statement: 'I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honoured to have been asked to play this role.'
