A Legend Remembered

Elizabeth Taylor was truly a star and a legend.  She was one of those classic beauties with a huge talent for entertaining audiences.  Outside of acting and stardom, she was also a philanthropist and constantly giving to others.



Another thing that Elizabeth Taylor was famous for, was her many weddings.  Over the course of her lifetime she had eight marriages to seven different men.  In keeping with her personality, her weddings were all very stylish and made to be an event to remember.

Elizabeth & Conrad "Nicky" Hilton (1950)

Elizabeth wore a formal white satin dress by Helen Rose
along with a large bouquet of white orchids.


Marriage to Michael Wilding (1952)
For her second wedding, she opted for a more casual look. 
The flowers in her hair add a great finishing touch.


Elizabeth and Eddie Fisher (1959)
Four her fourth wedding, Elizabeth stepped outside the box and
went with a green chiffon dress.  This color is just perfect on her.


Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton (1954)
For her first wedding to Richard Burton (they married in 1964 and
again in 1975), Elizabeth Taylor wore an empire wasted yellow
chiffon dress.  To add to the look, she wore lilies of the valley
and white hyacinths in her hair.

Although yesterday was a sad day in losing Elizabeth Taylor, her memory and legend are sure to live on.
