Richard McLaren/Lifetime

While the made-for-TV movie may have been panned by critics and a handful of celeb viewers on Twitter, Liz & Dick did have one redeeming quality: Lindsay Lohan‘s wardrobe.

The Lifetime movie chronicles Elizabeth Taylor‘s relationship with Richard Burton from 1961 to 1984, which means there was a spectrum of pretty awesome period looks. We especially loved the wedding scene, where Lohan sported a version of Taylor’s iconic yellow mini dress complete with a floral headpiece, and an ultra-glam poolside look consisting of a retro floral-print swimsuit, an oversize hat and cat-eye sunnies.

Lohan also slipped into 64 more ensembles including fab furs and jewel-tone cocktail dresses, several of which were vintage. “Many of the vintage dresses fit her like a glove. Lohan’s waist measures a tiny 23 inches, while Taylor’s was a mere 22 inches,” the movie’s costume designer, Salvador Pérez, recently told PEOPLE.

Like the clothing and accessories, Lohan’s hair and makeup were also spot-on, particularly her dramatic winged liner and bold red lip (exact shade: M.A.C lipstick in “Hot Tahiti”).

“[Lohan] looks so much like her. There was a moment when she saw her picture on the monitor and said ‘I’m her.’ It was thrilling,” the movie’s hair stylist, Beatrice De Alba, explained to PEOPLE.

So though Lohan’s acting skills are up for debate, at least the troubled actress looked good while attempting to pay homage to the late icon. Tell us: Did you watch Liz & Dick? Did Lohan do Taylor justice?
