Elizabeth Taylor, 1932-2011

Thursday, 24 March 2011

Great actress, HIV/AIDS campaigner and a woman who wasn't afraid to live her life the way she wanted. Here are some of my favourite pictures and quotes of her. I think she looks the nicest in the somewhat underrated film Butterfield 8 (as seen as above).

Would love an original of this poster. In fact I've been hankering after it for a while

Her child beauty really equated into adult beauty, and her face didn't really change at all!

'I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened and I'm not afraid to look behind them'

'The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues'

'My mother says I didn't open my eyes for eight days after I was born, but when I did, the first thing I saw was an engagement ring. I was hooked'.

'Big girls need big diamonds'

Perhaps not one of her best style moments, but you got to admire the joie de vivre behind an outfit like this!
