Eyecon: Elizabeth Taylor

This week brought the sad news of screen legend Elizabeth Taylor’s death at age 79. She is one of the first celebrities I remember identifying as beautiful. Her delicate features and raven hair made me take notice even as a young in watching her in National Velvet. The marriages, the scandals, the 80s: Taylor lived through it all, and is remembered for her tireless humanitarian work in support of AIDS research as much as she is for being a rare a two-time Oscar winner (Best Actress for Butterfield 8 & Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?). Enjoy the following images of Ms. Taylor looking uber marvelous.

Amazing green dress, fur stole, obvi diamonds. Reminds me of Viven Leigh in this photo.

I could/should/will do a whole post devoted to Cleopatra. Swoon!

Coiffed to the nines, often dripping in jewels, always g-l-a-m-o-r-o-u-s.
Somewhere Charlotte York is weeping.
Much Love,
