Elizabeth Taylor on jewelry: “Each gem in my collection represents a moment, a relationship, an experience that I treasure. It’s the love that surrounds my jewelry that makes it so important to me.”
Fashion trends may come and go, but true style is eternal. Just ask Elizabeth Taylor, who recently sat down to talk style with out friends at Stylelist. Take lessons from her, darlings, because she certainly knows what she’s talking about.
“I don’t follow the dictates of fashion,” she said.” “I stay true to my own style, wearing the things that inspire me and not just what’s shown on the runway or in fashion magazines.”
And she’s been through it all: Hollywood, marriages, health issues, brilliant acting roles, not to mention that fact that she was named Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. In all her experience, she’s gained more sartorial knowledge than most—fashion icons Halston, Edith Head, Helen Rose, Irene Sharaff, Versace and Valentino are her good friends—so check out seven of her must-have fashion items.
