Elizabeth Taylor was a legend - an iconic beauty, an aromatic impresario, and a rare talent. If you only know her as from perfume commercials and tabloid breakups spend some time and get to know her on screen. She smolders in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, will make you want in a pony in National Velvet, and the costume changes alone in Cleopatra are worth the price of admission. She was the last big star from Hollywood's now long-since dead studio system, won two Oscars and was married eight times (most often to her favorite co-star, Richard Burton) - all in all she lived a full, marvelous, exciting life. Today we salute Old Violet Eyes, her style, her attitude, and her work.
If you want to emulate those startlingly lovely peepers, try Dior's Stylish Move palette ($58) - five gorgeous purple-y shades you can play with to make you eyes shimmer with lilac allure. White diamonds, both a perfume by Liz Taylor and one of her favorite things to wear, are next on the list. These Micropavé Diamond Earrings ($3,800) are stunning, if crazy-expensive. Finally, one of our favorite films of all time - The Taming of the Shrew ($10). Elizabeth Taylor is a phenomenal badass as the eponymous shrew, Katrina. Her long-time love, Richard Burton, tames the bejesus out of her - you'll enjoy every second of their feisty battle.
