Elizabeth Taylor defined modern celebrity and is considered the last classic Hollywood icon. As such, she continues to captivate and inspire the worlds of fashion, film, and philanthropy today.
A feminist and a trailblazer, Elizabeth Taylor was the first woman to be paid $1 million to appear in a film (“Cleopatra”), was the first celebrity to launch a fragrance brand, and was awarded three Oscars throughout her career. She went on to use her celebrity to stand up and advocate for those affected by the AIDS epidemic, to co-found amFAR and to found The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
Elizabeth Taylor reminds us that our lives are shaped by our passion and our courage to channel every ounce of ourselves into all that we do.
Elizabeth Taylor is considered one of the last true movie stars to have come out of the Hollywood studio system. After a stellar performance in National Velvet (1944) at just the age of 12, she went on to star in some of the most famous films in Hollywood history. Her natural beauty, flawless acting skills, and famous violet eyes charmed adoring fans in films like Giant (1956), Raintree County (1957), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958), Suddenly, Last Summer (1959), Cleopatra (1963), and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966).
Elizabeth Taylor appeared in over 50 films and is hailed as one of the most legendary actresses of all time.
