Elizabeth Taylor : February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011

Forgive me for this late post in acknowledging the death of a classic beauty, icon, and legend, Elizabeth Taylor. She passed away last week Wednesday at the age of 79 due to complications of congestive heart failure. No one could argue her beauty, talent, and class. How fabulous was she that, at her request, her funeral begin 15 minutes after it was scheduled to; as her representative told the media "She even wanted to be late for her own funeral." Even though she is no longer here, her brand will continue to go on. She was definitely a pioneer in the celebrity perfume industry, and Business Week said that White Diamonds, and her other scents will still earn her estate millions of dollars. Last year, her perfume brands earned $69 million worldwide.

Dame Elizabeth Taylor's beauty, business savvy, acting prowess, multiple marriages, awards, charitable efforts, and class is something that will live on.

Elizabeth Taylor Quotes:

"Big girls need big diamonds." 

"I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can't possess radiance, you can only admire it."

"I've only slept with men I've been married to. How many women can make that claim?"

"When people say, 'She's got everything', I've got one answer - I haven't had tomorrow."
