…the queen of hollywood.
i’m sure by now everyone knows, and is saddened by the news, that elizabeth taylor passed away this morning due to complications with congestive heart failure at the age of 79. blog upon blog is speaking out on her greatness, her legacy, her beauty; and while i don’t think i could say anything in any better words than others, i do have my own memories of this iconic and legendary actress, mother and activist.
one of the fist movies i ever watched over and over as a child was national velvet. i had received it on vhs as a christmas present from “santa” in my stocking. i think i watched that movie so many times it stopped working. and when i watched cleopatra, i just wanted to be her. i even dressed as her for halloween the year i had first seen it.
whatever your own memories or influences by her; her grace, her poise, her unearthly beauty will live on. our love goes out to family and friends and all those close to her.
