When Elizabeth Taylor died earlier this week, I found myself online looking through old pictures of her. Naturally, she was one of the most documented women of her time, I mean, has there ever been anyone more beautiful? Who wouldn't want to take her picture? There are a number of iconic images of her as a child actress, in character as Cleopatra and those perfume ads from the 80's. What struck me most though, were the less familiar pictures of her. I found these so captivating, and I wanted to share some here. I wish I could credit the photographers appropriately, but as we all know, the internet is a wasteland of great photography that all seemingly shot itself. If any of you are familiar with the photographer behind any of these lovely images, please share that info in the comments and we'll all learn something!
Right now though, just enjoy the sublime beauty of the one and only Elizabeth Taylor.
|I defy anyone to be this effortless and composed while being descended upon by pigeons. Ask the Robeau about the time I had a pigeon land on my head. It looked exactly NOTHING like this.|
|Just a couple of icons hanging out.|
|Love this simple and clean look. Lovely to see a picture of her from this era too.|
|OK. This one is the best.|
