{Stay Classy, Elizabeth}

Today, I mourn the loss of a starlet...the most emotional I've been about the passing of a celebrity since Michael Jackson. I'm not quite sure why I'm so sad, because I've never really been an obsessed fan...but, it's Elizabeth Taylor...enough said. At 79, dearest Dame Elizabeth has left us to join the ranks of angels...and I imagine when she walked through those pearly gates she did so with a strut, a flashy smile & a fabulous scent.

"Nobody tells me who to love, or not to love, who to be seen with and who not to be seen with"

An actress since she was a child, Elizabeth Taylor was known for being one of the world's most beautiful women, a lover of weddings, a fashion icon, a perfumist & so on. She survived many personal struggles, was known for raising AIDS awareness, nabbed five Oscar nominations & won two, and was as colorful in her personal life as she was in her professional life.

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

Elizabeth Taylor (she actually didn't like to be called Liz) is one of the most photographed women in history and holds the record for the most appearances on the cover of Life magazine (eleven) and People magazine (fourteen). One of the things that stands out about Elizabeth is her love of, anyone? She acquired one of the greatest private jewelry collections in the world, and was known to be creative with her pieces. 

"Big girls need big diamonds."

"When people say 'She's got everything,' I've got an answer - I haven't had tomorrow."

 "I'm a survivor. I'm a living example of what people can go through and survive."

Stay classy, Elizabeth.
