Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor (February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011) was a fa- mous British-American actress. From her early years as a child star at MGM-Studios, she became one of the great screen actresses of Hollywood´s Gol- den Age. As one of the world's most Iconic film stars, Elisabeth Taylor was recognized for her acting ability and for her glamorous lifestyle, beauty and distinctive violet eyes.

Through her career that spanned six decades, Elizabeth Taylor won two Oscars and made more than 50 films. Read my previous post to her tribute here.

Elizabeth Taylor was also a pioneer in marketing a celebrity merchandise brand, and despite her years as an actress, most of Taylor's wealth came from her business ventures. She designed fine jewelry for The Elizabeth Collection, and launched three perfumes, "White Diamonds",  Passion", and "Passion for Men", which together had an estimated US$ 69 million in 2010 sales.

Recently her entire Collection of Jewelry, Fashion and Accessories as well as her Haute Couture Gowns has been displayed in Moscow, London, Los Angeles, Dubai, Geneva, Paris, and Hong Kong to promote The Auction that is taking place these days at Christies.
