We have to admit, we were a touch surprised to see Lindsay Lohan rocking her way down the red carpet for the very swanky White House Correspondents Association Dinner, held at the Hilton Hotel in Washington D.C.
Wearing a floor-length satin black frock and elegant jewelry the Mean Girls star looked a million miles away from the disheveled girl we saw so much of last year. With her red locks curled and coiffed and her pout painted a perfect movie star red, Lilo looked better than ever. Top marks. And not a patchy-tanned bit of skin in sight.
Lohan's date for the special occasion was her trusty lawyer, Shawn Chapmen Holley. Not your usual date-night fodder, but hey. We don't often go out for a dinner hosted by Barack Obama, so who are we to judge!
Whilst at the party Lindsay found herself needing to pop to the loo. Well, all that fancy table water has a habit of going right through you, right? Lilo happened to meet an elderly cleaner in the toilets and, after seeing how hard Bianca was working, gave her $100! Yep, just pulled a crisp $100 out of her purse. Just the fact that Lilo carries $100+ around with her is enough to make us draw a breath. Lindsay reportedly told the Hispanic lady, "You're too old to be doing this," before insisting she take the cash. Aww! This is the Lindsay Lohan we want to see more of, please. The giving-cash-to-old-ladies, wearing-glam-gowns-and-brushing-her-hair Lindsay.
Though we've seen lots of pics of Lohan smoking like a trooper recently, she apparently claims she has taken up the habit as part of her research into hor role as the late, great Elisabeth Taylor. Hmm, we hope you're researching with those herbal cigarettes that Sarah Jessica Parker smoked in SATC and the Mad Men crew get through?
Do you think Lilo has finally turned a corner, heatworlders?
