Rewind back to the 1990s, and Lindsay Lohan, now 36, was a rising star, having appeared in the remake of Parent Trap and then the iconic teen series, Mean Girls in the early 2000s.

But unfortunately, her career took a downward slope after starring in some unimpressive movies, and her battle with addiction and her wild parties were widely publicized.

She has failed to land any significant roles over the past decade, and an attempt to revive her music career didn’t quite go as planned. But now she’s back with a vengeance, having recently signed a three-movie deal with Netflix.

Falling for Christmas – Lindsay’s big comeback?

Falling for Christmas is her first major role, where she portrays Sierra Belmont, a newly-engaged and spoiled heiress. She stars alongside Chord Overstreet, best known for his role as Sam Evans in the television series Glee. Her younger sister, Aliana Lohan, portrays her stylist Bianca.

In the end kissing scene, Chord Overstreet is actually kissing Lindsay Lohan’s stand-in. Professional skier Rian Zetzer is a stunt double for Lindsay Lohan in the skiing scenes.

“After losing her memory in a skiing accident, a spoiled heiress lands in the cozy care of a down-on-his-luck widower and his daughter at Christmastime,” Netflix writes about the plot. And yes, it’s going to be one of those feel-good, romantic Christmas-time movies we all pretend to hate but secretly love.

She covers “Jingle Bell Rock” for the film, and it’s part of the movie’s secular soundtrack. Lohan also performed the song for a scene in the 2004 American teen comedy film Mean Girls. It’s the first time she sings in a film since the 2006 American musical comedy film A Prairie Home Companion.

In an interview with Vogue, Lindsay shared, “I feel like what we don’t have enough of right now is romantic comedies. And that’s exactly what it is: It’s a really fun, uplifting romantic comedy. And it’s actually really funny.”

She went on to say, “When I read the script, and when we started to film it, I didn’t realize how physically funny we were going to be. There’s a lot of physical comedy in it, which I really liked doing—it’s one of my favorite things to do, which I haven’t got to in a while.”

Lindsay loves being back on set and shared how much she had missed being part of a movie, “The most exciting part about going back into filming is being on set with everyone. Not just in front of the camera, but being around the crew. All the little things that people don’t think are the fun part—the call time, the call sheets—I just really love being on set and interacting with people, and then bringing a character to life. I really have missed that.”

Lindsay has been busy in Ireland filming her second movie Irish Wish. In an interview with THR, she spoke about her partnership with Bernard Hiller, who is both her acting and life coach.

He has played an integral role in helping her get her relationship back on track, saying, “He changed my life.”

Looking chic comes naturally to Lindsay

As part of promoting her latest movie, she headed off to NYC and was a picture of elegance in her sleek all-in-white Michael Kors Spring 2023 Collection look.

She wore a white sleeveless, three-quarter-length blouse, and we love the simplicity of the neckline and pocket detail.

The SNL host paired her blouse with a matching skirt which had the perfect thigh slit. She finished her look accessorizing with a narrow gold belt cinched at the waist and matching strappy heels.

But the outfit we fell in love with was her patchwork Akris pantsuit she wore to the Good Morning America studios. If there ever was a statement piece, this was it. We’re so glad she’s started working with Zendaya‘s longtime stylist Law Roach.

Her multi-colored suit with its clashing colors is the latest trend, and the oversized blazer was perfectly paired with high-waisted trousers and a matching sweater.

The shades of red, orange, and yellow with pops of green definitely saw her standing out from the crowd. She completed her look with burgundy “Bebe” patent leather platform pumps from Giuseppe Zanotti.

For the premiere of her new Netflix movie Falling for Christmas, she wore a Valentino sequined floral lace column gown that you can buy at Saks Fifth Avenue.

She toted a Valentino Garavani Rockstud Spike chain shoulder bag in metallic nappa lambskin with crackle effect. Lohan removed the leather shoulder strap and carried it by hand.

Movie deals and marriage

2022 is proving to be a great year for Lindsay; Netflix movie deals on top of her marriage to financier Bader Shammas earlier this year.

She shared her news via Instagram, referring to him as her husband, and wrote, “I am the luckiest woman in the world. Not because I need a man, but because he found me and knew that I wanted to find happiness and grace, all at the same time. I am stunned that this is my husband. My life and my everything. Every woman should feel like this every day.”

And we are sure we will be seeing a lot more of her as her career grows from strength to strength.
