The Hottest Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

If there is one thing we should all be thankful for it is that our lives got to cross paths with Elizabeth Taylor’s.  Some of you may remember when she was the hot ticket with top-billing in the latest blockbuster, some of you may have grown up with her as she championed the fight against HIV/AIDS, and now thanks to the Huffington Post’s style reel, we can all recall the glamourpuss fashions she was so iconic for.  Since her passing on March 23, there has been an outpour of style memories from her Cleopatra makeup to her ubiquitous White Diamonds perfume.  She was the Angelina before Angelina, the tabloid darling before there were tabloids, the gay rights activist before such a term existed.  And today, in the era of panty-less celebutantes and theatrical get-ups, the understated allure and quiet sexuality of Liz, her style, and those violet eyes remains unparalleled.
