My first memory about Elizabeth Taylor goes back about 18 years ago, when I was watching Cleopatra, remember the scene when she rolls out of the carpet?
That movie was magnificent, I absolutely loved the costumes, and was obsessed with drawing Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra in all her costumes afterwards.
Another association with Elizabeth Taylor that comes to mind is from Sex and The City, remember when Charlotte became a Jew? She followed Taylor’s example, who became a Jew for Eddie Fisher. And in the show her engagement ring design was based on the one Eddie gave Elizabeth.
Here they are in Moscow, Red Square, in front of St. Basil’s…
Later on Sex and The City Charlotte goes a little over the top and names her dog Elizabeth Taylor. But the dog was super cute!
Elizabeth Taylor was also famous for her (Yes, 8 husbands and…) quotes. I chose some to share today, and make it a tribute to her! RIP Elizabeth!
I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can’t possess radiance, you can only admire it.
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.
And was she hooked indeed…
