Alongside Lohan are words that describe Taylor's story, but that could easily apply to Lohan herself: "child star," "paparazzi," "controversial love affairs."

In a photo snapped between takes Monday, seemingly on a cigarette break, Lohan passes for the Queen of the Nile in a choppy black wig and gold heels (shoes that Angelina Jolie was once rumored to fill in a film about Cleopatra based on a recent biography).

Lindsay Lohan has just signed on to play Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie. But the young actress has felt a kinship with the late Hollywood legend before.

In 2006, when she was just 19, Lohan posed as Taylor for Interview magazine in photos taken by Karl Lagerfeld – including a cover shot.

The shots are remarkably powerful, with Lohan managing to capture much of Taylor's beauty and vulnerability – traits she'll have to channel for the Lifetime film, too.

It has not been revealed who will star opposite Lohan as Richard Burton in Liz & Dick. Russell Crowe and Clive Owen are running neck and neck in a PEOPLE poll from earlier this week.

All that glitters is gold – as Tuesday night's Manhattan auction of 80 gems from the estate of Elizabeth Taylor fetched nearly $116 million, a dazzling world record for a private jewelry collection.

"It's one of the most extraordinary auctions that Christie's has ever had and a testament to the affection for Elizabeth Taylor worldwide," said Marc Porter, chairman and president of Christie's Americas, reports the New York Post.

The highest price for a single item – $11.8 million – was set by the "La Peregrina," the 16th-century pearl on a necklace designed by Cartier, which husband Richard Burton gave Taylor in 1969. It carried a pre-auction estimate of between $2 million to $3 million, and when bidding passed the $10 million mark, the auction gallery burst into applause.
