Fashion & Film Legend: Elizabeth Taylor

Sadly, stylist muse, and Oscar-winning star Elizabeth Taylor passed away a couple of hours ago at the age of 79... Taylor was the most blessed and cursed actresses of her time, the toughest and the most vulnerable. She had extraordinary grace, wealth, and voluptuous beauty. Taylor won three Academy Awards, and also recieved a special award for her humanitarian work. She is what I consider old hollywood glamour and one of my all time favorite American film actresses, which included my other two from the same era, Aubrey Hephurn and Marilyn Monroe.

R.I.P Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor* (February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011)

“I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can’t possess radiance, you can only admire it.” -Liz Taylor

Spring Fragrances...

Now that my favorite season spring is in the air, I fell in love with these fresh new scents from luxe- designers. My five fave picks are...

♥ 1- Chance by Chanel, the "pink" bottle it has a soft fresh intoxicating scent that will last for a long time! This perfume has a blend of citron, hyacinth, amber, patchouli and jasmine. My all time favorite and signature smell!!!

♥ 2- L'Imperatrice 3 by Dolce&Gabanna, from the D&G Anthology collection it features aromas of watermelon, kiwi, pink cyclamen and musk. Advertised by supermodel Naomi Campbell, L'Imperatrice 3 is my favorite out of the complete D&G Anthology collection of five!

♥ 3- Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs, it has a sweet floral scent with a twist of various notes, this fragrance was just launched this year so it's hot off the market, so cheery its the perfect mood-booster!

♥ 4- Jimmy Choo Parfum simply named Jimmy Choo, being the famous designer first launched fragrance, it is defined as feminine yet empowering with alot of sensuality to it. Fruity with green top notes, tiger orchid, sweet toffee caramel and indonesian patchouli. It is sexy and irresistable just like jimmy choo heels!

♥ 5- Love by Chloe, the it-girl brands latest feminine and sophisticated soft floral aroma with notes of orange blossom, pink pepper, iris, lilac, wisteria, hyacinth, heliotrope, powdery musk, talc and rice. And although it is the most expensive perfume out of my five fave picks, it is still in my must get list!!!
