Beauty Spotlight: Elizabeth Taylor

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.

    I always regretted not wearing my hair like Elizabeth did with all the flowers in her hair.

    I made the mistake of letting others talk me into things I didn’t want.

    they just don’t make ‘em like they used to – I can’t help agreeing to that when looking at the photos of actresses from the golden era of Hollywood. Compare them to the actresses nowadays…

    Sad that she didn’t age well – so beautiful here. But she wound up looking quite battered by life.

    Such a Goddess!

    Used to be incredibly beautiful on the outside. I barely recognize her in the close-ups though, I notice her iconic look more when the photo isn’t just of her face. She’s one example where heavy eyebrows worked in her favour.

    There used to be way fewer hollywood actresses so they could elevate to goddess status. Now we are literally saturated with beauties.
