Product Description
This book brings together a collection of photographs and commentary celebrating Elizabeth Taylor’s timeless sense of style, both on-screen and off, which ran the gamut from her high glamour Hollywood gowns and jewelry to her extraordinary earthy beauty which transcended every embellishment of fashion.
 
She was a star who was both idolized as a screen goddess and viewed by her adoring public as someone who was approachable, relatable and fun. Her style was a synthesis of her on-screen persona and her private life, both often turbulent and thrilling.
 
This luminous photographic retrospective of the great roles and public and private moments captures the style and essence of one of Hollywood’s last great stars. In her unforgettable performances in films like A Place in the Sun, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Butterfield 8, she sustained an on-screen image of smoldering passion and a dark, private toughness which was tempered by her overt, almost alarming, vulnerability. As one of the most photographed celebrities in the world, the public saw her personal style from 1940s starlet to sex kitten of the 50s and 60s to the perennial divorcee of the 70s to the compassionate activist of her later years.
 
Elizabeth Taylor: Her Life in Style is a visual celebration of the life and times of a Hollywood legend whose image will endure forever as a symbol of glamour and beauty.

Review

This book wonderfully portrays Taylor's flawless beauty and enduring, dropping-in-diamonds elegance. (Daily Express)

Elizabeth's cheerful, sexy vulgarity was one of the things that so excited her public, and drove Women's Wear Daily to distraction. Susan Kelly's book is a lovely tribute, and respectful of Elizabeth's iconic image. (Liz Smith)

Your coffee table is naked without it. (Red magazine)

The coffee table tome that lovingly pays homage to the late American actress. (Net-a-porter)

A stunning collection. Highly recommended! (HotBrandsCoolPlaces)

First and foremost, I'd like to thank Susan Kelly for the time and effort it took to let us Taylor fans have another book on, "The Most Beautiful Woman In The World"! So, Susan, THANK YOU! Now, that said, I would feel totally remiss in not bringing the NUMEROUS errors to Susan's attention. But, in her defense, the source information may well be the culprit for these errors. As a life-long collector of Taylor memorabilia, I know without doubt that many printed sources are in error, particularly "Getty Images". Then, someone comes along who wants to do a book, they get hold of this inaccurate information, and the error continues with a new generation of readers.

Pg. 9 - The photo from 1949 is actually part of the key set of publicity photos for "Ivanhoe" from 1952

Pg. 15 - "Sun-drenched glamour on the set in Italy" is actually a photo taken in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico during the filming of "Night of the Iguana". An alternate shot from this series is correctly captioned on pg. 84.

Pg. 19 - "Studio portrait from 1953" is actually part of the key set for publicity for "Raintree County" in 1956.

Pg. 29 - "With Nicky Hilton 1949" is most likely from 1947, and she is with Marshall Thompson, not Hilton.

Pg. 47 - "c. 1953" is actually a publicity portrait for "A Place In The Sun", taken in 1949. An alternate shot from this session is accurately captioned on pg. 34.

Pg. 61 - "...early 1958" is actually from the after-wedding party at Taylor's marriage to Mike Todd on Feb. 2, 1957.

Pg. 71 - "...portrait shot in 1960" is actually part of the "Raintree County" key-set from 1956.

Pg. 79 - "...formal event with Fisher in 1961" - is actually from their appearance at the Academy Awards on April 4, 1960. In continuing, "...

I highly recommend this book, the pictures are beautiful, Susan Kelly presents the book well. I like the wonderful personality and warmth that shows in the pictures of Elizabeth. I was a fan of hers since I was six years old. I will treasure this book . I miss her and she left us with beauty and grace. Wonderful woman, she makes us all proud.

This was given to my daughter who is a huge Liz fan and this is what she says....

Could have more photos, but the ones that it did have were great quality. There were a few new photos that I hadn't seen before and I loved that.
