Elizabeth Taylor's Changing Looks
The ravishing child star star, born Feb. 27, 1932, made her transition to teen flicks with Cynthia and Life with Father. She passed away March 23, 2011.
The teenaged Little Women star began to make her transition into adult roles with buoyant waves and a come-hither stare.
Taylor drew attention to her strong brows and famous violet eyes with a trendy pixie style in The Girl Who Had Everything. Offscreen, she gave birth to Michael Howard Wilding, her son with second husband Michael Wilding.
Taylor posed with her hair swept seductively to the side.
The star of Rhapsody and Elephant Walk pushed back her short locks with a sweet band of flowers.
Classic screen siren Taylor wore her hair in a wavy pageboy the year she starred in The Last Time I Saw Paris and Beau Brummell.
At the Cannes Film Festival, she wore a diamond tiara courtesy of third husband Mike Todd.
Her stylish turn in Cleopatra proved she could carry even the wildest of onscreen looks.
Taylor starred alongside fiance Richard Burton in The V.I.P.s. To play a wealthy socialite, she adorned her glossy bun with her own emeralds.
For her first wedding to Burton, Taylor topped her ringlets with a headband decorated with daisies.
Taylor wore a fur hood to an N.Y.C. press conference for The Taming of the Shrew.
Assuming the role of a bored millionairess in Boom!, she wore a fanciful floral headdress courtesy of Tiziani of Rome designer Karl Lagerfeld. (Offscreen, she picked up her second Oscar from her role in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?)
The mother of four adopted a bohemian look that included a crown of braids coiled over loose locks.
With her salt-and-pepper pouf and well-defined brows, the 53-year-old took on the '80s looking better than ever.
Perhaps as a nod to her recent nuptials (to seventh husband, Larry Fortensky), Taylor added fresh flowers and trailing white ribbons to her short coif.
A colorful scarf brought out her vibrant lip color in There Must Be a Pony.
The breathtaking 60-year-old presented at the Academy Awards in fuchsia lipstick and lavender lined eyes.
She borrowed a Van Cleef & Arpels diamond daisy necklace in which to receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Oscars. After the evening, "Elizabeth Taylor decided it was her good-luck necklace and bought it," the jeweler's Muffie Potter once told InStyle.
Stylish even in strife, Taylor let her hair go strikingly silver following a surgery to remove a benign brain tumor. "True glamour comes from within," she said at an event thrown in her honor by the CFDA. "It radiates from the soul."
She accepted a British Academy Fellowship Film Award with her platinum locks styled in a tousled bouffant.
She returned to the Cannes Film Festival with an apricot-hued coif.
She turned 75 as a cinema legend, the head of a billion dollar fragrance empire, and a tireless fundraiser for AIDS research. Naturally, she wore bombshell red lipstick to her birthday party.
