Everlasting Elizabeth

She hated being called Liz.

She ruled the Silver Screen in the ’50s and ’60s.

She captivated us with her style and her lifestyle.

Elizabeth Taylor passed away today, Wednesday, March 23rd, at the age of 79.

Here are some of my favourite images of a woman who can never be forgotten.
