Elizabeth Taylor - Style Icon

Elizabeth Taylor - Style Icon

Like Audrey Hepburn in her little black dress, Elizabeth Taylor is one of the very few women who can claim to be a true style icon. We loved both these women and the image of Elizabeth in her white satin & lace slip in 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' has always stayed with me as the most fashionable & iconic film footage of all time!

In the 50’s she was voted the Most Beautiful Women in the World and her style has influenced every decade since. Her wardrobe, an absolute treasure trove of diamonds, rich furs and bejewelled Dior commission couture, will inspire designers to come especially for today’s Premiere & Red Carpet celebrities. She was the epitome of Hollywood glamour with her celluloid magic & smouldering, hypnotic looks. The beauty industry must be forever in her debt, no one quite wore the amount of black eyeliner better than Taylor!

Her own life was probably her greatest role, with multiple marriages, adoptions, jewels, booze and breakdowns, but her on/off love affair with Richard Burton was her most poignant. On one trip back to England when she & Richard moved into a London house, she bought two adorable poodles. This was the start of our family love for the little dog when my Dad bought my Mum her first poodle for her 21st birthday, influenced by Elizabeth. And I confess to having my own now!

Fashion designers all over the world are forever in the debt of her image and no doubt designers such as Dolce & Gabbana will pay homage to her style with new collections.

We just loved her!
