That is a beautiful image for the stunner of a woman, actor, and presence. May she rest in peace.

What an absolute knockout. She was something else.
She was one of the first movie stars I became a fan of as a little girl in Saigon. My mom used to take me to the cinema and I got to see Cleopatra on the big screen. Forget wanting to be a princess, I wanted to be a queen like Elizabeth Taylor!
WHAT?!?!? Just heard/read of it…
OMG… I’m afraid to tell the folks about this news.
Anyway, may she rest in peace.
Uh oh, do you have big fans of hers in the family?
The word icon is used so often now its true meaning has been devalued, but Elizabeth was that rare thing — a true icon. She was ahead of her time in many ways: a popular child star who grew gracefully and seamlessly into demanding, complex adult roles, the hunted celebrity whose affair with Richard Burton while each was married to someone else unleashed the modern paparazzi, one of the first celebrities to launch her own brand of fragrance, and through her tireless work raising awareness and funds for AIDS causes, helped to take away the stigma and fear that surrounded the disease in its early days. And, she won two Oscars and collected fabulous jewellery! She was a beautiful woman who lived a big, rich life. We won’t see the likes of her again.
Eloquently said, Elizabeth. She lived her life wholeheartedly, for sure.
I only just heard of this now when I opened my emails and saw yours. Elizabeth has expressed it beautifully ~ she was something special. And this photo of her is breathtaking. I can understand why she made you want to be Queen, PCN.
I imagine you’ve been resting your eyes. Hope they’re feeling much better!
She had been on my mind alot lately and dreaded hearing the news that Elizabeth Taylor had died. Her passing has left an empty place in my heart and a deep sadness. She was idolized by millions but she had a way of getting into your heart. With all her fame and wealth Ms. Taylor never let us feel she was above us. She was always with us – caring, laughing, crying and hoping. RIP, lovely lady.
You’re right—I never got the sense she was better than us, despite her obvious glamour. I mean, she was still tweeting as of last month!
