My love affair with Liz

by theglamourati

Elizabeth Taylor is an icon. More specifically, my icon. Last night was spent in sheer bliss: in the company the most glamourous woman there ever was, who had the most amazing jewellery collection there ever was. Married 8 times to 7 men, she collected the finest jewels in the world like most collect loose change. ‘Elizabeth Taylor: Auction of a Lifetime’, told the story of her life through her fabulous jewellery – now that’s my kind of documentary!

She adored fur, extravagant headwear, men, a drink and most of all diamonds.

She made a household name of Valentino and Halston, had brows one can only dream of, raised over £270 million for AIDS and HIV, and thought nothing of swimming in Cartier.

I shall follow her guidance forever: “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.”
