We investigate how well the shape parameterizations are applicable for studying the giant dipole resonance (GDR) in nuclei, in the low-temperature and/or high-spin regime. The shape fluctuations due to thermal effects in the GDR observables are calculated using the actual free energies evaluated at fixed spin and temperature. The results obtained are compared with Landau theory calculations done by parameterizing the free energy. We exemplify that the Landau theory could be inadequate where shell effects are dominating. This discrepancy at low temperatures and high spins is well reflected in GDR observables and hence insists on exact calculations in such cases.
