A Tribute to Elizabeth Taylor

"I feel very adventurous.  There are so many doors to be opened, and I'm not afraid to look behind them." - Elizabeth Taylor

Today, one of Hollywood's legendary beauties, Dame Elizabeth Taylor, passed away at the age of 79 due to heart failure.  Not only was she an iconic film actress, but she was also known for her glamorous style.  She often dressed in simple, yet sexy satin dresses usually complimented by jewelry that she was also never afraid to show off.  In fact, she made diamonds a part of her daily wardrobe - it was like a secret love affair.

In addition to being a fashion icon, Elizabeth became an advocate for HIV and AIDS awareness.  After the death of her friend, Rock Hudson, she used her success to open The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation and raised millions for the cause.  

Elizabeth Taylor's kind heart, beauty, and style are legendary.

TREND: Embellished Shoulder Pads

Tasseled shoulder pads were a big hit in the 80's and then made a come-back in '09, but I'm still loving it! ♥

It's such a great way to add some glam to a simple top.

Don't you just want to revamp your blah cardigan now - 'cause I sure do.  Check out this super easy tutorial by Sanam of Day By Diva.
