The life and times of Lindsay Lohan, Lilo, have not been particularly attractive in recent years following endless court appearances and drug-taking accusations.

But it seems all this drama, perhaps combined with her penchant for so-called cosmetic enhancement, explains why the 25-year-old turned up to a pre-New York Fashion Week event looking somewhat haggard.

She looked a far cry from her fresh-faced Mean Girls’ character Cady Heronas when she took to the red carpet of amfAR in a knee-length body con, long blonde tresses and a silver necklace, which managed to improve her otherwise unflattering outfit.

It may have been the fringe sweeping across her forehead that added at least ten years to her face, but there was little denying she has been seen in better form.

The actress rubbed shoulders with Hollywood legend Woody Allen, renowned for such movies as Whatever Works and Manhattan.

Lohan is due to appear in InAPPropriate Comedy later this year, alongside Michelle Rodriguez, Adrien Brody and Rob Schneider.
