Liz Taylor started acting at young age, and her career blossomed from her first role as a child in There’s One Born Every Minute. Aside from her extensive film career including National Velvet, Father of the Bride, and Cleopatra, Taylor also appeared in the media and the spotlight for her personal endeavors as well. Going through a whopping eight marriages, her romantic life was almost just as vast as her professional career! All scandal, romance, and films aside, what we want to focus on is the beauty and fashion that Liz Taylor was able to embrace constantly in a life where she had to learn to expect the unexpected.
Taylor was almost more famous for her amazing eyes than anything else, in fact that’s the reason an agent even noticed her in the first place. She was actually born with what was considered a genetic mutation, however this mutation hardly handicapped her beauty. Instead it meant she was born with two rows of eyelashes instead of one. While we all can’t exactly force ourselves to grow an extra row of long lashes, it’s a reminder that paying attention to how you apply your makeup can give you an ultra romantic vibe. To get Liz-like lashes, layer on the mascara and take note of the dark colors that our models use as well.
Although Taylor stayed up to date with the changing fashions as she got older, in the vintage era of the 30′s and 40′s, she was a force to be reckoned with. Her fashion was classically vintage, here you can see that the body shape of her dress outlined a perfectly feminine shape. Yet she had the perfect combination of modest and sexy with thick straps and a sweetheart neckline. If you own any great tops or dresses like this, Secrets in Lace demi bras fit perfectly underneath. This Magdelena Demi Bra has underwire and support to give your chest lift and shape, yet has lower cut cups to work with enticing sweetheart necklines.
The always changing and entertaining public and professional life of Liz Taylor will be remembered by many, however for those of us with an appreciation for romantic style and vintage fashion and beauty, we will remember Taylor for giving us yet another icon to look up to!
