Not her best look: Lindsay Lohan managed to look much older than her 25 years as she stepped out at the amfAR event in New York

Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan drew attention to herself for all the wrong reasons at the amfAR New York Gala tonight.

The young starlet looked years older than her quarter of a century, as she appeared on the red carpet sporting a matronly look, and heavy make-up for the stylish affair last night.

Cutting a fine frame: The actress cut a thin frame in her Tom Ford dress

Glazed over: While Lindsay was seen smiling and at the camera she seemed somewhat distant

In fact Lindsay was looking almost unrecognisable with her overly bleached hair, badly cut fringe and glazed expression.

Her white dress by Tom Ford did little to reveal her real age and the midi-length white shift dress, complete with modest v-neckline and sleeves, did little to flatter her figure.

While Lindsay might have hammed it up for the cameras on the red carpet, smiling broadly at times, she appeared vacant with a blank expression on her face.

Mingling: The 25-year-old was seen talking to Soon-Yi Previn and Woody Allen at the event

Can you see? Lindsay's fringe partially covered her eyes and she was seen wearing a fur embellished coat

Perhaps the stresses of recent months which have been fraught with legal woes, her probation obligations and allegations she has been drinking, which she strongly denies, have taken their toll on the former child star.

The actress was joined by a whole host of famous faces at the event at Cipriani Wall Street and unlike Lindsay, most stars looked chic and stylish at the fashion event.

Supermodel Heidi Klum, who last month revealed she was splitting from husband Seal, attended the event in a long black gown with metallic sequin embellishment and accessorised with her wedding ring, which she has yet to take off.

Interesting combination: As well as teaming the feminine gown with the fierce jacket Sarah also added white leather gloves to the mix

All about the bling: Sarah took off her jacket at the dinner to show off a bejeweled neckline as she posed up to designer Kenneth Cole

While there was plenty of glamour on the red carpet fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker certainly didn’t play it safe when it came to her ensemble.

The Sex And The City actress donned a pale pink dress which boasted considerable material around the skirt and trail, curiously teaming the feminine dress with a black leather biker jacket.

To complete the miss-matched look the actress had donned a pair of short white gloves.
