…Liz Taylor…She’s 78 today.
You all know I’m a huge fan. So this is a holiday for me!
She’s gone from the winsome child star to the most beautiful woman in Hollywood and an award winning actress to “the Grande Dame” of Tinseltown. With stellar Oscar winning performances in “Butterfield 8” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolfe”, her classic portrayal of the girl who wants to ride in “National Velvet” and the vamp of the Nile, “Cleopatra”, Elizabeth Taylor has charmed audiences for over 60 years. Her philantrophic work has raised millions for several causes, including AIDS research.
Her art and jewelry collections continue to be the envy of many collectors and her loans to museums are coveted.
She’s truly a Grande Dame!
Regardless of her ‘trashed through the tabloids’ life, Liz has thrilled us all. She’s living proof that a life of excess can rob one of beauty, health, and viablilty, but she…remains a National Treasure.
Happy Birthday Dame Elizabeth!
