Dame Elizabeth Taylor, actress and wedding icon, died today at age 79 of congestive heart failure. She had been being treated for the last two months at Cedars-Sinai Hospital for her condition and is survived by her four children, 10 grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
Her first time in film was at age 10, and in 1944, at age 12, she performed in MGM”s National Velvet and became a leading child star. At 5”2”, her glamorous, haunting beauty and deep blue-violet eyes enamored star-struck movie-goers. Her personal life, however, was a tumultuous tempest of love affairs and marriages.
Married eight times to seven men, and rumored to be getting married an ninth time, Mrs. Taylor-Hilton-Wilding-Todd-Fisher-Burton-Burton-Warner-Fortesensky may not have taught us how to stay married, but she taught us how get married in style, and how to look fabulous doing it. Celebrityweddingbuzz.com gives us a peek into her wedding fashion – and husbands – from 1950 to 1996 here.
