    Elizabeth Taylor a 20th Century Classic Beauty!


    Liz Taylor Top 4 Classic Beauties!

    Elizabeth Taylor is one woman who will go down in history as a ‘classic beauty’. Elizabeth Taylor defined celebrity hair.  Today, and in recent days to come, she will especially be remembered for who she was and how she made her mark in the world. My guess the words, ‘classic beauty’ or similar adages will be used often in describing Elizabeth Taylor.“Elizabeth Taylor Defined Celebrity Hair”

    Four women top my chart of “classic beauties of the 20th century;” Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly.  There are only a handful of women who stand out among Hollywood’s finest.

    So, what causes one exquisite woman, like Elizabeth Taylor, to stand out among all the other beautiful women in Hollywood?  It goes beyond having just a pretty face or figure, even though; let’s face it, that’s huge! But, it goes deeper than that.

    It takes more than just physical beauty to rise to the top of such a list of women. The way she carries herself, her drive and ambition or her indisputable authenticity about who she is, even her outrageousness plays a part in the public’s perception.

    Ahhh, but we know total perfection isn’t realistic in defining classic beauty and life’s imperfections can create ties that bind too.  Liz’s love life played out like a Hollywood Oscar winning drama and played a role in connecting her to the public. She lived her life as she wanted.  After a rebellious 8 marriages with 7 husbands, some would say she was in a life-long search for her ‘soul mate.’  However, in spite of, and maybe even because of faults and controversy, her fans had a love-hate-love again relationship with her.

    Elizabeth Taylor tops my list of the 4 classic 20th century beauties.  Not only is Liz’s  physical beauty undeniable with a milky white skin tone, deep dark hair, definitive eyebrows and eyelashes and of course, her famous violet eyes, but her philanthropic interests were just as impressive.

    Elizabeth Taylor was highly admired for her efforts in supporting AIDS research.  She was given the Legion of Honor Award, Frances most prestigious award, in 1987 for her efforts. The Academy Awards honored her in 1993 with a special Oscar, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, for her work for AIDS research and other causes.  And, in 2000, she was awarded the title of ‘Grande Dame,’ equivalent of a knight, by Queen Elizabeth ll, for her charity work and entertainment services.

    Elizabeth Taylor was a passionate woman of many talents and had the dramatic flair to express herself beautifully. Receiving the Humanitarian Award to a standing ovation, she said, ” I call upon you to draw from the depths of your being, to prove we are a human race, to prove that our love outweighs our need to hate, that our compassion is more compelling than our need to blame.”

    RIP Elizabeth Taylor, thanks for the memories . . . you were and always will be remembered as a ‘classic beauty.’
