Beauty



Well what to say?  Elizabeth Taylor was a beautiful flawed woman who has left an amazing legacy not only her films, and her work with AIDs fundraising, she worked tirelessly to raise funds and to lower the stigma of that disease, but also the legacy of images such as this.  For years she personified beauty for me. The fact that her life was not so gilded, her broken relationships, weight issues and drug abuse just made me love her even more.  She was one of us was Liz, just way prettier.  Rest in Peace lady!
