Happy Birthday Elizabeth Taylor

Such a beautiful woman. Violet Eyes. Amazing sense of fashion. Married 8 times, to 7 husbands (she remarried Richard Burton 16 months after divorcing). An icon, both in style and humanitarianism.

Today would mark her 80th Birthday...a woman who will never be forgotten.
(Feb. 27,1932-March 23,2011)
