When we think of beauty icons, our minds are transported to the days of old Hollywood glamour; The days of structured hair, red lipstick and strong brows; The days of Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. Although we flick through the pages of glossy mags and admire Blake Lively’s glowing skin and Kristen Stewart’s ability to rock a smoky-eye, there’s no denying it: they just don’t make ‘em like they used to.
To celebrate the release of Liz & Dick – a Lifetime film about the tumultuous relationship between Hollywood legends Elizabeth Taylor and Tim Burton – we’ve put together some of Taylor’s most outstanding beauty looks. Despite receiving mixed reviews, Liz & Dick served as a good reminder of Taylor’s extraordinary role as a trailblazer in the fashion and beauty realm. And when it comes to reminiscing about the fabulous Ms Taylor, any excuse will do. Enjoy.
