Here is the first official image of Lindsay Lohan made up as Elizabeth Taylor for the bio-pic in which LiLo stars as La Liz, released Monday by Lifetime.

In “Liz and Dick,” Lohan, 25, will attempt to channel the Oscar winner, alongside Grant Bowler, who plays Taylor’s longtime love and two-time husband Richard Burton.

The Lifetime original movie, which began shooting principal photography Monday in Los Angeles, will debut later this year.

Lohan’s casting as Taylor has been received mostly with boos, as many believe the troubled starlet doesn’t have the chops, or the looks, to portray one of Hollywood’s legends.

“I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor,” Lohan said in April when the casting news was confirmed. “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.”
