Elizabeth Taylor...

 


What a woman. What a life.





Some of Elizabeth Taylor's best known quotes:

"Big girls need big diamonds"
"I've been through it all, baby, I'm mother courage."
"Success is a great deodorant."
"It's not the having, it's the getting."
"I fell off my pink cloud with a thud."
"So much to do, so little done, such things to be."


May Richard Burton greet her with open arms.
May she rest in peace.

She truly was one of the most beautiful women. I love your images ~ they show the vulnerable side to this incredible beauty. Perhaps that was part of what made her so beautiful?

The last of the greats in my opinion. Nicolex

Liz Taylor really had it all; money, fame, love, but also illnesses, broken heart, sadness...

She definitely left an indelible mark behind. She was so enigmatic on and off screen! XX

such an inspiring lady!!! you know, she made Puerto Vallarta famous ;) she fell in love with this city, this is where she married Richard and where they lived happily for a while. They put this town in the international map. We love her here! :) xoxoxo

Nice tribute. I'm sure Elizabeth would feel so honored by the outpouring of love from every one. She and Richard are both smiling right now.

She was incredibly beautiful and glamourous, a symbol of her generation, fantastic actress.
The world never saw eyes like hers.

Exactly my thoughts Charlotta. Wondered if he was waiting for her? Ingemar Bergman always said he was sure his wife would greet him as soon as he died. I hope so.
