Lindsay Lohan’s White House Corres. Dinner gown: busted or appropriate?

Yay! We have photos from the White House Correspondents Dinner!! HUZZAH BITCHES. I already covered the speeches and some highlights from the event yesterday, so now that we have photos, let’s just talk about fashion and celebrity gossip from the event. And let’s start with everybody’s favorite traveling crackie, Lindsay Lohan.

After missing her first flight from LAX to DC, Lindsay eventually arrived in town and hit up a pre-party, and then made it on time to the Correspondents Dinner. Lindsay wore this full-on ball gown to the event, and while I have to give her credit for actually putting in some effort, it does seem like she was overdressed. Like, she thought she was going to the Oscars when most ladies were in much simpler gowns or cocktail dresses. I will also give The Cracken credit for taking a shower – she didn’t look like she had been rolling around in a vat of orange spray tan. What I won’t give her credit for: the lip injections, and looking like a middle-aged hooker.

Thus far, I haven’t heard any stories about the Cracken at any of the post-dinner parties, but the day is just beginning, and I’m sure those stories are coming. By far the funniest story involving Lindsay in Washington also involves Rick Santorum:

Does Rick Santorum have a crush on Lindsay Lohan? The former presidential candidate reportedly asked the actress to pose for a photo at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, then awkwardly denied it.

Lohan was sitting with Greta Van Susteren, whose invitation to the star drew fire from Meghan McCain, at the annual event when Santorum approached. He reportedly asked Lindsay to take a picture of him with Van Susteren, then snapped a photo of Lohan. Not along with him, just a photo of Lohan. Alone.

Random? Sure. But probably harmless. The funny part is that when asked about this by a reporter shortly after, he dodged the question unnecessarily.

“I took a picture of a lot of people tonight,” the visibly uncomfortable politician said, as though he could not remember what happened minutes earlier.

[Via The Hollywood Gossip]

Sketchy? Of course. There’s also a photo of Santorum looking down on a seated Lindsay… and it just feels gross. Creepy.

More photos of Lindsay… this is the crack face who will portray Elizabeth Taylor. Lindsay recently said, in response to criticism about her taking the Liz & Dick gig, that “I know that I’m great and I know that I know Liz Taylor really well.” She knows she’s great, y’all.

    She looks great. Very appropriate, for her.

    • Red Granny says:

      Suprisingly great. But also as if she played dress up as Angelina Jolie.

    • TheFactsR says:

      It was the White House that was busted having the likes of hibitual violators, sluts, and tramps such as LL and KK! What a decaying bunch to present at the nations White House dinner.

      • lisa says:

        Again the White House has nothing to do with the guest list. The media outlets are in charge of the guest list. Send your complaints to Fox News.

      • Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

        @TheFactsR—This event is held at a hotel…A Hilton, I think. As far as I know it’s never been at the actual white house.
        It’s supposed to be sort of a mini roast of the current administration. Maybe this year the guest list was part of the joke!

      • Tiffany says:

        It was specifically Fox News that invited Kim Kardashian and Lindsey Lohan. Their punishment for inviting these crass people is that they had to sit with them all night.

        I think Lindsey’s dress looks so cheap. The seams on the chest are so wrong, it looks like a homemade prom dress gone wrong. Her make up is to harsh, and as usual she looks like she is 45 instead of 20-something.

      • bluhare says:

        For someone who thinks they know facts, you don’t. It’s the White House CORRESPONDENTS’ Dinner. Know what a correspondent is? S/he is a reporter. They put it on and invite the guests. NOT the White House.

        Apparently, you weren’t paying attention when Dubya went and did his bit on WMD’s.

      • cameron says:

        I think Fox News did it on purpose. You know they are Anti-Obama. Reading some of the comments here many people seem to be clueless who invites these guests.
        Fox is probably betting Americans will think Obama invited these H*’s.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      If you ignore the hard hooker face (make up isn’t helping), she looks great. She had her extensions replaced, her skin isn’t uber orange, she is covered up with just enough peekaboo to look sexy (if you ignore the hooker face).

      She has platform black sandals.

    • Genevieve says:

      Now, now, hens…errr, I mean, “ladies”. Granted, this girl has caused her own self-created drama in years past. And the Botox and fillers are just a WEE bit too much for a girl of her age. However, I think she pulled herself together beautifully and manages to look both “old school” Hollywood and very simply elegant. I spent most of my teens and twenties modeling fabulous creations, and Lindsay’s gown, as far as I can scrutinize, is made from very dense, heavy, couture-quality satin, and the stitching is both flattering and appropriate. Being from the South, though, I’m not sure that I personally would have gone for the side-boob exposure for an event at the White House :-~

      C’mon, ladies…all things considered, I think she looked lovely. Why so nasty? If you REALLY want to rip someone’s formal attire to shreds, why don’t you girls go after Rosario Dawson? Lovely girl, but that dress? The grossly overdone boobage spill? T-A-C-K-Y.

  2. Mimi says:

    I love the way she looked there. Demure and classy. The best look in very long time. Go Lilo.

  3. ahoyhoy says:

    the STEAMER is your friend, Linds.

  4. Granger says:

    The second-last photo, where she’s smiling somewhat genuinely, reminds me of how pretty she is when she isn’t making those weird, try-hard, open-mouth, eyes-half-closed, I’m-so-sexy posing faces. Too bad her lips are so ridiculous, though.

  5. mln76 says:

    There are very few things creepier than a ‘moral police’ Republican. You know a guy like Santorum has some of the strangest hang-ups about sex. He’s gonna do some freaky things to that photo.

    • hairball says:

      EXACTLY what I was thinking – these Republican ‘I’m so moral / gay bashing’ guys most always turn out to be gay and/or complete hypocrites. Funny how Republicans want gov’t out of everything except your bedroom and uterus.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      As someone who was raised Catholic – that place causes sexual hangups. Seriously – they are obsessed with sex. It’s scary.

      It’s not just repression – it’s obsession and repression – like putting bacon in front of a puppy’s nose and taking it away over and over and then if the puppy manages to grab it they slap him silly.

      You know Marilyn Manson was raised Catholic.

      PS: No clue about John Edwards – I think he is just an ass. Nothing kinky or fun to gossip about here.

      • Alita says:

        Just to be fair, that’s only that Catholic Church you grew up with, you know? I’m not Catholic (I am Christian) but there is a huge difference between how people (priests, I mean most importantly I guess) approach teaching those sorts of things. I don’t think anyone can deny the huge problems in the Catholic and Christian churches with sexuality. The point I’m making is that it’s not *all* Catholic people that would have been so in-your-womb (or even just in-your-bed) as you experienced. As a Christian and as a person, I think it’s hugely sad you took from your time going to church that, basically, they just want to moderate your frisky times. That’s sad for the church, the priest, you, the other people there – lah, loving God is great! I’m always sad when it gets screwed up by stupid stuff.

        Yes, I’m aware this comment is really stream-of-consciousness, please lol away.

  6. jamie says:

    That gown makes her look twice her size but at least all the important bits are covered. The make-up is what’s really terrible. I wonder if she did it herself, it’s at a Christina Aguilera-level of terribleness.

  7. Tifygodess24 says:

    So basically anyone can go to this party/dinner? All the pics I have seen have all been of C/D list variety with a very few A list thrown in for good measure. I think the White House needs to tighten their list a bit and get some people who actually belong there. Not the likes of pee queen and coke bloat.

  8. Cathy says:

    I hate to admit this, but I like the dress. She actually almost looks human in it. Yes, she is over dressed, but she gets invited to so few special events that she’s gotta dress up when she can.

  9. jano1981 says:

    It looks very heavy, thick, and bulky. Perhaps I’m just used to seeing more dainty things in pictures.

  10. mandy says:

    I find it well represented the america (drog sea and sun :) ) but you do not notice that george came alone?? Miss Stacy (who had everything planned to come see her tweet on her dress) had coincidentally work! as if this was done at the last minute ….

  11. Marjalane says:

    She would have to bathe in bleach for a week before I’d think she had cleaned herself up. That 20 something, crackie has the permanent, hard ridden look of a 50 year old, small town barfly. There’s no redemption in her future.

    But it is fun to know that creepy Rick Santorum finds her dishy-

  12. truetalk says:

    whoever the makeup artist is needs more recognition for bringing a corpse to life.

  13. constant says:

    Is that her lawyer behind her in the first photo?

    • bubbles says:

      yes, just in case… a necklace disappears or a someone gets carjacked or stalked or gets caught in the bathroom with another girl or guy or is using the powder room for the other kind of powder …..
      wait… who pays this woman or does she get paid in publicity dollars?

  14. Nicole says:

    I thought the make up rule was smoky eye or red lips, but not both. Given that LL considers herself to be fashion forward, have the rules changed? Personally it seems a bit much.

    • lower-case deb says:

      i thought that this was a trend; seen loads of smoky eyes+red lips lately.

      off the top of my head, livia @ the oscars, jolie @ the GG, scarjo @ the avengers premiere (the one with the black red gown), i can seem to remember KStew having this combo look as well, can’t remember where or when though.

  15. lower-case deb says:

    her expression in the last photograph reminds me of this old asian flick:
    http://www.cinemasie.com/en/fiche/video/1183/jaqHR.jpeg

    for some odd reason

  16. TruthTella says:

    I think she looks nice, her hair looks gorgeous and the only way to make (fake) lips like hers or Lana Del Rey’s look semi normal is red lipstick.

  17. bea says:

    I do not understand the construction of that dress. Why would a large-chested woman want a SEAM going horizontally across each breast? Not. Flattering.

    ITA regarding the make-up, it’s super harsh.

    I would say she looks like she’s doing better, but considering the pix from the set of Glee, I won’t. She’s deep in it still.

  18. G says:

    The problem with the dress is that is doesn’t fit. Especially in the top with that unfortunate seam in the bust. Her hair part is neither straight nor artful. She does look better that she has for sometime.

    I feel funny commenting on how she looks when the red flags are everywhere. Bar fights, late for work, unprepared, partying till the wee hours, missing flights. Come on girl. Get some help. The way you look is the least of your problems.

  19. Blackwood says:

    am I the only one who thinks that the cut the dress has at the bust should be under the breasts? I think it was meant to fit like a halter bikini bra but it’s too small for her boobs, hence it sits at nipples’ height. I don’t know… the dress is pretty, she looks nice (compared to what she always looks like), but something about the fitting of the gown seems a little bit off…

  20. backwards says:

    Just hope she keeps it up!

  21. Ming says:

    Bo was was definitely trying to Lassie-speak Obama out of this.

    Poor dog, his territory has been lindsed.

  22. lulu says:

    I hate that dress! Surprised it’s getting so much positive feedback. It’s heavy, and cut very strangely under the arms. In many photos, it looks as though her boobs and her elbows are parallel.
    However, her hair looks so much better this colour. Did you see the photos of her stumbling through the airport?

  23. Jo says:

    She looks very pretty; however, the dress is not flattering at all. Santorum, by the way, has denied the stories he approached LL for a picture.

  24. serena says:

    Well, I guess it’s okay for her. This is her best nowadays, so yeah she’s ‘fine’ (for resembling a 40years old). The dress was fine, hair too.

    I hope she behaved well..sigh

  25. Jayna says:

    I hate to admit it. She looks good.

  26. some bitch says:

    She looks better here than she has in a lonnnng time, but that dress reminds me of a black “evening gown” Courtney Stodden wore on a publicity stunt. I think it’s just the cut… but it really doesn’t look that great.

  27. katie says:

    She looks pretty good here considering how she’s looked in the not too distant past. The red lipstick is a bit much and the gown isn’t quite appropriate. But, she could have done much much worse.

  28. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Not bad. Pleasantly Shocked!

  29. another nina says:

    I think she looks very pretty. And I hope she will pull herself together (but I don’t think she will though.)

  30. PAgirl says:

    That last picture’s expression/caption: Move that president! I’m Linnocent!

  31. Anonny says:

    Having been to one of these dinners, I can say she’s *not* overdressed. The men are in tuxes, the women in cocktail dresses or gowns. It’s DC’s nerd prom.

  32. NJ says:

    I think she looks like Nicole Kidman in that last photo… yikes!

  33. NerdMomma says:

    As everyone has noted, there was much wrong with the tailoring of the dress, and it needed steaming. I also have to agree that her face looks really quite good, better than she has in many years. Her worst look ever was orange skin and pale pink lipstick, and the red lipstick really worked for her. And her eyes do look pretty lucid. I am so confused by the presence of her lawyer. Is getting taken along on outings like this part of how Lohan pays her attorney, since she’s supposed to be broke?

  34. jules says:

    She looks much better here than she has lately… which I guess isn’t really that much of a compliment…

  35. Elina says:

    Her new huge teeth freak me out.

  36. dorothy says:

    I’m not a fan, but she looks better than she’s looked in a long time.

  37. Candyland says:

    Is this a dress you get burried in? Looks like it. And dress is too big in the boobs. Looks like her boobies got deflated like helium balloons at a child’s party that were out flapping in the wind to long. And why is dress slit to the waist when meeting the Prez?

    At least she was wearing her favorite tracking device, Shawn Holly Jolly Hollie. And at least she didn’t bring her mama. I dunno, would the world explode if Pimp Mama number 1, Kris, met Pimp Mama 2, Dina?

  38. Sapphire says:

    The boob sag is even more pronounced. And why the off center part? To hide the extentions?

  39. Bess says:

    Compared to how she usually looks, Blohan looks pretty decent here.

    Her makeup is bothering me, though. Why is her face a completely different color than the rest of her body?

  40. Mary says:

    The dress could be prettier…. it’s wrinked…and it seams a cheap kind of dress…. she could do better!!!!

  41. Dani says:

    I feel like I am in the minority but she still looks REALLY terrible. She has awful awful bloat along with old lady makeup and an ill fitted dress. I know we want to jump on her successes because they are so few and far between but really….?

  42. imabrat says:

    That hemline is so sloppily done; I think she had to borrow something classy in a hurry. The girl can make anything look cheap.

  43. Hanna says:

    Gross. The red lip color is off, probably due to her cracked out lips. The bust of the dress makes her boobs look weird. Im surprised that you guys think she looks great. :/

  44. Boo says:

    I know the trend is for bright lips, but damn, those swollen lips with that hideous shade of orange red is too too much. I’m also troubled by the cheek implants. Can anyone tell me–if you touch your face and you have implants, can you feel them under there? And once they put them in, are you stuck with them forever? Or you can have them replaced, but you can’t go back to just a regular face, right? Or not? I guess I’m glad I don’t know the answers to these questions.

  45. sparkle.burnout says:

    Santorum (infamously) said he doesn’t believe in masturbation. I’m sure he wanted the photo to not masturbate to later.

  46. Edith says:

    I honestly think she looks like hell.. If I would have bumped into that at a party, I would have slowly got away….

  47. Nanz says:

    Part of LL’s “comeback” strategy should include making nice with a stylist and a decent designer. Problem is, no one wants to associate their brand with her. I’m being sincere. All other tweaking and procedures aside, she will continue to look “budget” if she doesn’t gain some access to better clothes.

    • G says:

      I actually think she’s got some really good stuff.

      I just think that she has no sense of context. She can’t tell the difference between different types of occasions and their requirements? She really needs help with that.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        Shouldn’t she hire a stylist for that? I would have no clue what the difference would be to this event vs. the Oscars, vs. the golden globes.

        I wouldn’t put a seam on my boobs and worn clown orange lipstick but my eye make up would be as bad as hers.

  48. MrsPotato says:

    i think she looks far older than she actually is.
    her skin and boobs age her drastically. sad…

  49. hillbilly in the corner says:

    I’m going be in the minority here but the gal looks like road kill….face way to make up honestly a shade lighter and a tad heavier handed and she would look like a Japanese Geisha girl in full makeup….and that dress I know she was channel the Elizabeth Taylor era dresses of the 50′s I’ve seen one like that on a picture of Grace Kelly in white but its all wrong…needs fitted to her body..its two long and she needed a damn pushup bra to fill in the bodice ..and wrong , wrong, wrong , for a dinner like that..yes others wore growns but most followed the rules of higher necklines even the strapless ones are cut high….but the most telling is the trapped look in her eyes she was way out of her depth and she know it….She did NOT want to be there thats for sure….LOL

  50. Shelly says:

    She looks really good in some of the pics, and then in some her lips look extra jacked. The dress is ok, but it looks wrinkled.

  51. Syko says:

    I never think sagging side boob is appropriate for this sort of thing.

  52. kc says:

    I think her eyes look ok. Lips — ugh. I think very few people can pull off truly red lips.

    The dress — weird, weird, weird. It looks like someone sewed on about 6 inches on the bottom – i’m not sure if that was part of the ‘design’ or something or tagged on at the end.

  53. littlestar says:

    Am I the only one who think the dress she is wearing is terribly ill fitting? It’s too big in the breast area, and just by looking at the seams, the dress itself was not sewn properly. Did LL make the dress herself?!

  54. Marion says:

    She looks wayyyyy better than she has in a really long time…
    Good for her!

  55. Anastacia Beaverhouzen says:

    rick santorum is a f–king muppet freak

  56. lucy2 says:

    That’s the best she’s looked in a while, but she still looks gross.
    Greta van Surgery should be ashamed of herself. I think it’s weird how they invite celebs like that, like props or accessories.

  57. SolitaryAngel says:

    That dress looks like maybe Allie made it in Home Ec. At least they gave her a flea dip before she went….can’t be giving POTUS bugs!!

  58. camel says:

    THIS is the face of 25 yrs old?! I never felt better about myself! :)

  59. Eleonor says:

    The dress would be a very classic one, which is a good choice, the shape,the gown everything would be good. The problem is that in some way (I can’t tell why) it looks cheap.

  60. HappyJoyJoy says:

    So she showered and dressed some what Ok. Look at all the praise she’s getting! This is exactly why she doesn’t learn, she gets praised for putting in the minimal amount of effort and then of course funks that up. She’s not fooling me, She’s just in training to move on to being a hooker for politicians. Nothing but a training run.

  61. G says:

    That’s some major jewelery on Shawn Holley.

  62. birdie says:

    On Dlisted is a pic where Kim and Kris Jenner,like everybody else, had their hands on their hearts for the national anthem. In the background you can see LiLo making a crazy face and other people giving her the side eye.

  63. alexis says:

    Was gonna criticize, but then I was like…no, just take it.

  64. Dawn says:

    Way better than the Kartrashians, but then that isn’t saying much. At least she worked for her fame rather than released a nasty sex video with a nasty man like lardo did.

  65. foozy says:

    this is the best she’s looked in a very very long time. i don’t see what’s so revealing…

  66. Quinn says:

    Did her attorney invite Lilo…like “spend a gazillion dollars on legal services with me, get one seat at White House Dinner free” type deal???

  67. Isabel says:

    She looks good, better than she has looked in years..

    But girl.. please find a concealer that doesn’t make your face look like a mask; her neck and shoulders are tan and her face is pale.. Very odd.

  68. J says:

    I am sure Santorum will stick lohan’s pic in his secret p*rn chamber below his house where he performs daily his blood drinking ceremony and orgy.

  69. skuddles says:

    Dress is reasonably appropriate for the occasion but looks a bit budget and dumpy, not unlike la Lohan herself…

    Oh and wonders be, she appears to be relatively sober here but I think she’s jonesing it a bit from the look on her face in several pics.

  70. Onyx XV says:

    That lipstick color is positively horrifying. GF sure has never heard of the term “subtle,” has she?

  71. ezra says:

    What ruined the gown was the stitching across the middle of the breast area.
    It is poor tailoring in my opinion.
    The colour and cut were ok.
    What was truly horrendous was the colour of her lipstick.

  72. Ruth says:

    It always surprises me when i realize she is the same age as the olsen twins..

  73. Michele says:

    Between the numerous botox treatments, lip fillers, cheek implants, tacky fake tan applications and years of drug and alcohol abuse, that is one rough looking 25 yr old face! It’s only downhill for her from this point on. It’s a shame she messed with her once pretty face at such a young age. She looks hard and used up now. I want to feel sorry for her but I just can’t anymore.

  74. nikzilla37 says:

    I hate saying nice things about LL but- this is the best she’s looked in awhile. Like she was sober the night before. She looks fresher somehow. The lips will always be terrible but at this point, they might as well be permanent.

  75. MST says:

    Give her a break folks, maybe she really is trying to turn it around. I think she looks nice. As for the dress — it’s not bad, but all that seaming doesn’t help. Satin is difficult to wear. It probably would have looked nicer in something a little softer, like a heavyweight silk crepe.

    But I do have to admit that she looks older than 25.

  76. Stacy Dresden says:

    I think that dress is hideous!

  77. normades says:

    A tiny glimpse of the pretty she could have had.

  78. kill me now for saying this, but she looked OK.

  79. DebDebP says:

    Which designer’s dumpster did this hideous dress come out of? Maybe it came from a Project Runway challenge where every outfit was AWFUL and they had to pick the best of the worst. I hate it.

  80. wunder says:

    Her bright red duck lips are reminiscent of the Joker.

  81. jellyfish says:

    she looks like she is wearing a rejected prom dress from a thrift store

  82. original kate says:

    appropriate? lindsay hasn’t been appropriate since she was about 12.

  83. the original bellaluna says:

    I hate, hate, HATE dresses (and bras) with seams right across the middle of the breasts. I REFUSE to wear them. Nothing screams “LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!” like visible seams across the breasts.

    (Of course, I’m a natural DD-DDD, so finding bras without that seam is quite a feat.)

  84. ZenB!tch says:

    I guess Santorum is her pay date for the evening?

  85. dahlia1947 says:

    She looks good. Keep it up girl! I like the halter top look of her dress. And her boobs look good!

    I hate Kim Kardashian. SNAP!

  86. jes_sayin says:

    This kind of dress really needs to be worn by a small breasted woman to look good.

    Unfortunately it just gives her big hooker boobs.

    • crazycatlady says:

      LOL. Yeah, but can you recall a time when she wore something that fit her appropriately up top and/or when she wore a gd boulder holder? Sloppy Toppy, I have now dubbed her.

      That lipstick – jeezum crow! HOW OLD is she again? She gobs on more makeup than someone 50.

  87. april says:

    I didn’t even realize it was her when I was watching the correspondence dinner on CSPAN. She looked totally amazing. I agree she looked like a blonde
    Angelina.

    Santorum is pure crazy and sleazy.

  88. Koa says:

    She looks a HOT FKING MESS. Are you people kidding with all this praise?? The dress is wrinkled and doesn’t fit properly, looks like a cheap bridesmaid’s dress. And the make-up is nothing short of GHASTLY. Looks like she got dressed in a car while driving thru a dark tunnel…

  89. lil says:

    If she actually knew a lot about Elizabeth Taylor, she wouldn’t refer to her as Liz. Elizabeth hated that nickname.

  90. swcs says:

    Can you please do a whole post on Viola Davis, what she wore and how she looked at the Dinner? Maybe extreme envy can be somehow channelised positively into self-improvement…

  91. Sara says:

    How/why does her skin get that unhealthy gray cast? I can’t tell if she looks sickly or if it’s bad makeup.

  92. rachelle says:

    she look good (for once in a long time) but the dress do look super cheap!

  93. Vera says:

    It only looks good at a 3/4s angle. Otherwise, her breasts look lop-sided and overall she just looks like she is still playing on the Marilyn Monroe theme as that cut is very Marilyn in her white dress, just made for a ballgown. Like, once past the breasts on this dress, it looks like a fine dress – just the cut of the top and then the weird seam on across the breasts – not very attractive. I’m just her implants make it hard to wear nice, respectable dresses, but this doesn’t look like it was tailored for her.

  94. erin says:

    she’s depressing to look at.

  95. Megan Jones says:

    I wish that celebrities like this would stay away from events like this. They steal the spotlight away from the people that really matter. I know it is a pretty laid back event, but it gives the electorate a chance to see what our elected officials are like with their tie loosened a bit. I think it is very valuable to see how they react to being the butt of jokes and the like, but it is nearly impossible to get any media coverage of such things when everyone is running to be the first to make fun of Lindsay Lohan’s fashion mistakes or her many indiscretions.
