Book Description

The Queen of Glam … Violet Eyes … Dame Elizabeth … Miz Liz. In a moving tribute to the big screen’s grande dame, the editors of Vanity Fair have published the magazine’s first e-book, a star-studded collection of classic stories from the likes of Dominick Dunne and George Hamilton—taken from the pages of Vanity Fair, Hollywood’s acknowledged arbiter of talent, glamour, and power. This e-book lifts the veil on the real Elizabeth Taylor—the child star and cinematic beauty, the seductress and consummate diva—through her more than 50 films and seven husbands, through her torrid affairs and countless illnesses, meltdowns, and triumphs. Here is a behind-the-scenes portrait of La Liz—in all her dazzling, madcap glory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth Taylor February 26, 2012

I enjoyed reading about her life and how very different she truly was in many ways from us mortals and yet so very much the same. I found it amazing that she had never been in a bank. Truly could not remember a time she was not famous. Her committment to her AIDS work was the core of her later life. The interviews are the cream of the crop and enjoyable. If you loved her work and found you want to learn more about her this is a short course to a very complex women. Worth the read.

There is nothing new here that has not been published a dozen times. Not worth the time to review it.

If you are a fan, as I am, this is a great read with insight into Miss Taylor and her drama filled life. Since this is a compilation of magazine articles by people who new the star, its quick and fun reading.

Beautiful both inside and out. The depth of her charity work was a pleasant surprise. Sorry not to have met her.

4.0 out of 5 stars See Both Sides of Elizabeth Taylor April 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
A nice balance of gossip and class. Typical of Vanity Fair - a sense of intimacy without being gauche. She was a unique woman who led an extraordinary existence, the stories show the person beyond the glamour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some surprises here! March 25, 2014

I love to read about this extraordinary woman. She has aways been my beauty icon. She really had guts to do anything and everything she wanted. But if she was selfish, she still was loved and adored to those close to her.

3.0 out of 5 stars ET from Vanity Fair's viewpoint
It was just okay. Did not finish it though. I did not care for some of the interviews and comments about her. It just got boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Elizabeth Taylor
Her life and loves were fascinating to me when I was a young girl. She was a product of the Hollywood Machine but knew how to use it. Admired her.

I always love to read the writings of the Vanity Fair authors. Much detail is given and one does not go away feeling let down, but, still wanting more

These are more self-aggrandizement for the writers of the E.T. vignettes than insights into Liz's life. Read more
