It’s crucial to be present, never taking a moment for granted. It’s also important to look back long enough to learn from things passed and apply it to our present to get the most out of our future. In looking back, naming Elizabeth Taylor a fashion icon is an understatement, and truly a one-dimensional view of a multi-talented individual. With over 60 years in show business and an activist, this woman’s influence and accomplishments are insurmountable. She was born February 27, 1932 in London England. She dove right in show business, taking the plunge at only age 9, moving to LA to begin her career. Her most famous roles were the following: National Velvet (1944); Cat On A Hot Tin Roof (1958); Cleopatra (1963). This woman won the Academy Award for Best Actress not once, but TWICE for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf. Digging deeper, her personal life never had a dull moment, being married 8 times to 7 men in a 50-year time span. If that didn’t keep her busy enough, between a booming career in show biz and her multiple marriages, she still had time to care for others. This quality is seriously lacking today, and Taylor sets an amazing example to never be too busy to help others. She was a fashion icon, Casanova and an activist doing HIV\AIDS awareness, non-profit work, co-founding the American Foundation for AIDS research. Following this she founded The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in1993, earning awards for her activism and non-profit work, one of them being the Presidential Citizens Medal. March 23, 2011, we lost this amazing soul at the age of 79. Leaving behind an incredible legacy and example, truly she was a woman who knew who she was and what was truly important in life. We would be amiss if we did not talk about her fashionista side. Let’s break it down:
1. Lots of bling; Taylor always wore the real thing! Real diamonds, almost always sporting earrings, necklaces and bracelets and rings. This woman was always put together and blinged out with only the best of the best! She owned billions of dollars’ worth of diamonds, so this woman knew her stuff!
