Achieving the status of timeless beauty icon is no easy feat, nor is it based on looks alone. Sure these women scored in the genetic lottery — Grace’s bone structure seems to defy the laws of nature, and Liz’s double rows of eyelashes were a (lucky) genetic mutation — but pretty faces aside, the two stunners were able to maintained the public’s attention with poise, mystery, elegance and flair — while carving out their own distinct personalities.
Both incredible beauties, fashion icons, and strong, elegant women who undoubtedly shaped the world around them. It seems almost impossible to compare the two, but we’re going to do it anyway.
If you had to choose one of these women as your style icon, who would it be?
As I’m sure you know, last week beloved star and eternal icon Elizabeth Taylor passed away. Throughout her career, Elizabeth Taylor was an inspiration to many with her class and grace. I personally loved her and everything she represented that two years ago I named my puppy after her. From the moment she hit the big screen in the early ‘40s, the media was consumed with her. Whether it was her love life, movie career, jewelry or her amazing sense of style, the public wanted to know every detail of Elizabeth’s life.
We can all agree that Elizabeth Taylor was a fashion icon, but she also inspired several different beauty trends. Did you know that she was born with two rows of eyelashes due to a genetic mutation? I’d have to say that I wouldn’t mind inheriting that mutation! Her thick lashes and “violet” eyes became her signature trademark and were most certainly envied by all. As for her personal beauty style, I think that she’ll be most remembered for her classic look: a glowing complexion, defined eyes and alluring red lips.
Elizabeth Taylor defined “Hollywood Glam” on the Red Carpet and stars still try to channel her looks today. In honor of Elizabeth Taylor, I’d like to celebrate some of her iconic beauty looks that will remain timeless. Which was your favorite? Share with us below.
