In honor of a woman who really needs no introduction, but deserves one nonetheless, we dedicate this blog to the most beautiful face to grace film and stage, Elizabeth Taylor. Everyone knows the stories, the diamonds, the husbands but we prefer to focus on the iconic moments in Taylor’s fashion history; though, we couldn’t fault a woman who was as in love with jewelry as she was. So without further adieu we give you three looks inspired by three feature films starring Elizabeth Taylor.

National Velvet

Taylor played Velvet Brown, at the age of 12 and was catapulted almost instantly to stardom. Train your wardrobe for a glorious win by donning an equestrian inspired look from Brunello Cucinelli. Comfortable and chic Brunello Cucinelli linen pants look fabulous with the Brunello Cucinelli overlay shirt jacket and the Brunello Cucinelli over the knee boots.

Suddenly Last Summer

Starring as insane and to be lobotomized Catherine Holly, Elizabeth Taylor certainly made everyone gaga. Don’t go out of your head and over-think this one; a pretty and prim Oscar de la Renta sundress and some Lanvin espadrilles are the key pieces. Top it all off with a Marc Jacobs wide brimmed hat for a vacation look you won’t soon forget.

Cleopatra

Only Elizabeth Taylor could pull off the role of one of the most lavish women in history. Step out dressed like royalty in this Marchesa jeweled neckline gown. Worn with Lanvin snake skin pumps and piles of antiquity-inspired Yossi Harari jewelry, like his corset cuff, and your worthy subjects will bow down in awe.
