For my first post I wanted to celebrate Elizabeth Taylor. I love her; she is the ultimate woman to perfectly encapsulate what this blog really is about. In her prime she was the beauty queen of
I'd like to share with you some of my favorite Elizabeth Taylor moments throughout the years, some you may very well know about and some that you might have overlooked. We really hope that you like our ode to the women that will grace these pages and that you will become inspired by them as much as we have. As Liz said once, "I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can't posses radiance, you can only admire it."I now give you Elizabeth Taylor, beautiful, graceful, charming, funny, smart and just a LITTLE CRAZY!
As a young girl growing up in the early 90s my first exposure to Elizabeth Taylor was through her White Diamonds campaign. In fact, my grandmother, who OWNED the perfume, and who lived with my family exposed me to a lot of Elizabeth Taylor growing up. I'll never forget watching those commercials with her during her "stories".
My second favorite Liz moment is from the Golden Globes, in which she presented the best picture award for 2000. I quote her delivery of "Gladiator" all the time.
Everyone knows Liz has been married like a million times and judging from this clip, from another early 90s childhood staple, Entertainment Tonight (remember when John Tesh was on it?!), she's not planning on doing so again.
But probably the craziest thing about Elizabeth Taylor is her association with fellow crazies, Michael Jackson and Liza Minelli. Sometimes I think about what the three of them do and talk about when they are together. Once, I imagined them sitting in a garden, eating jello out of crystal bowls. This picture is from Liza's wedding to David Gest, god I wish I could have been there.
Liz has said that she doesn't read any of the biographies written about her. But I hope she knows that we all love her, no matter how crazy she is.
