"The Mean Girls actress underwent a huge transformation to play Dame Elizabeth Taylor in the new film, including changing her eye colour to match those of the late actress.

The FDA statements warned that many non-regulated costume lenses are prone to causing eye infections and possible blindness. The alarm was set when a recent Twilight-themed costume competition was held in Texas to celebrate the release of the film series’ final installment later this year." Read more.
