LiLo's 'measures to avoid alcohol'

Lindsay Lohan reportedly took great steps to ensure she didn't touch alcohol at an event this week.

The 27-year-old actress has fought a well-publicised battle with addiction, which was in part documented in her recent reality TV show for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.

Lindsay has been in and out of rehab over the years, with the programme shown after she left her last court-ordered stint last year. Oprah has made it clear she wants the actress to turn over a new leaf, with Lindsay criticised for partying over the last few months. This led to the actress apparently taking drastic steps during an event in London, UK, this week

"Lindsay wanted to come along but she was nervous about what Oprah might think," an insider told British newspaper Daily Star.

"Oprah has clearly told her not to touch a drop of alcohol and after... club photos surfaced last week Lindsay became increasingly worried. She asked event organisers to set up a 5ft. cordon around her so that any waiters serving champagne or any alcohol could not get near enough to tempt her."

Although the request was out of the ordinary, apparently those in charge of the fundraising event were happy to oblige. Their understanding helped everything go to plan, with Lindsay spotted sipping on fresh orange juice throughout the evening.

The gala was in honour of cancer research organisation Gabrielle’s Angels Foundation

While Lindsay was well-behaved at the bash, her outfit did raise some eyebrows. She opted for a bright green mini-dress which featured a plunging neckline and cutouts at the side. Lindsay accessorised with neutral make-up and a pair of super high black shoes, plus a great deal of air kisses as she made her way into the event.
