In celebration of the upcoming original Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, starring Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler, this post is about creating a look that is Old Hollywood Elegance with a modern twist.  Inspired by Lindsay’s look (above), I grabbed a few beauty products and went to work!

There is a place for hot rollers in today’s world! After my shower, I used Catwalk Root Boost (one of my much loved hair products!) and rough dried my hair, tossing my head upside down for more volume.  I rolled my hair under with hot rollers from Remington.  I had 3 different sizes and kept the largest for the front of my hair.  The use of hot rollers creates tons of volume, bounce and a bit of curl.

Old Hollywood inspired hair is full of volume and bounce!

This look is all about glam!  Long lashes, defined eyes and strong brows are created with Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams (13-warm beige, 1- anthracite and 2-steel), Avon black kohl eyeliner, Benefit eye bright and Too Faced Better than False Lashes mascara.  I use MAC Coquette eye shadow on my brows.  Nail color is L’Oreal Colour Rich Nail Polish in The Queen’s Might. Lipstick is Gash from Urban Decay.

While I am missing the major rocks that Elizabeth Taylor is known for, I did have a little wrist bling and a large cocktail ring to wear.  Chunky gem jewelry is not my style but I wouldn’t turn it away if my husband wanted to indulge me! A chunky ruby or diamond necklace would look amazing with this dress.  Costume jewelry would work well too, like either of these statement necklaces from Shop Suey Boutique:

The look is modern but elegant- perfect for an upcoming holiday party!

Are you inspired by Old Hollywood? How would you rock a Liz & Dick inspired look?
