To say that Elizabeth Taylor could be summed up as a Style Icon would not describe her. Being a woman who acted in a number of movies such as Cleopatra (in my top 5 and my sister feels was in a tie with) and The Taming of the Shrew, she was also stunning, gorgeous, vivacious - a Scarlett O'Hara type come to life. In her time, she was loved by many and yet this British born actress who passed away yesterday morning, was also an activist against the fight against AIDS and as a humanitarian, simply loved people and found the beauty in everyone. To say that it's a loss to lose one of my (and many other) style icons (others include Audrey Hepburn and many of the classic 30's and 40's actresses) simply doesn't light a candle on her poise and grace. We don't normally talk about the passing of others on Kitten Lounge but when someone embodies so much of what I can appreciate and respect, you have to take more than a moment to realize the magnitude of light that she provided in her 79 years.
