Recently Hollywood lost a legend as screen star Elizabeth Taylor passed away at the age of 79. Known as much for her tabloid-making relationships (7 marriages in all) as for her on-screen presence, Taylor was also a noted philanthropist working with amFAR and establishing of the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. Once considered to be the most beautiful woman in the world, she was also a closely watched fashion icon and always the picture of perfect glamour and womanly charms.
Taylor knew how to flaunt her best assets and took every opportunity to accentuate her killer hourglass figure. Nipped waists and halter necklines were here weapons of choice, both on screen and off. From Butterfield 8 to Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Taylor smoldered in some seriously seductive looks while still maintaining an air of ladylike decorum.
