She was a superstar, a vixen, a true beauty legend—Elizabeth Taylor was so many things. The two-time Oscar winner will certainly be missed and even if you’ve never seen Hot Cat on a Tin Roof or Cleopatra, chances are you’ve probably smelled her fragrance White Diamonds (which was one of the first celebrity fragrances ever and a perennial bestseller). While I can’t say that I am a big fan of that scent, I am certainly a huge admirer of her beauty style, especially her frequent and precise application of the bold red lip. For decades she sported the perfect crimson pout, and even did so up until the very end, proving that glamor knows no age. Classic, stylish, and so very elegant, these photos have totally inspired me to dig out all my shades of red and start applying with abandon.
