Liz Taylor, the glamorous screen siren of Hollywood’s Golden Age,  passed away this week, leaving a legacy perhaps more enduring than anyone before her. Best known for such roles as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf? and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Taylor was a cinematic goddess. Yet, much of her recognition came in the form of style icon.

Often synonymous with diamonds and extravagance, the beloved beauty had a fashionable instinct. Her form-fitting and feminine frocks seemed to naturally compliment her enviable eyes and curves. She was the type of woman whose beauty and style turned her from an actress to a legendary star.

May her star style be the source or inspiration for decades to come.
