Icon: Elizabeth Taylor

2011 March 23

Elizabeth Taylor is one of the most celebrated and beautiful actresses of the last century. She passed away yesterday of congenital heart failure at 79.

I always thought Taylor in her prime was about as gorgeous as you could get–dark hair, violet eyes, the epitome of glamour and class.

Who’s your favorite classic Hollywood icon?

    Truly sad. These beautiful pictures are a good reminder of what an icon Taylor really was (and will continue to be).

    Thanks for sharing this news.

    That first picture is completely stunning. You need a gold dress.

    They played “Giant” at the movie theatre not too long ago and I remember I couldn’t get over how gorgeous she was. I’ve always thought Ingrid Bergman and Donna Reed were gorgeous as well. There’s a movie called “The Last Time I Saw Paris” (which just so happened to be inspired by a F. Scott Fitzgerald story) with Elizabeth Taylor and Donna Reed and I always thought Donna Reed could hold her own next to Taylor, because she was just as beautiful.
