Style Icon of the Day: Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor was not just a star, but a woman who is immortal due to her iconic style and stunning jewellery collection. The fiesty star oozed glamour and was hailed as a screen siren all over the world with her over the top jewels and her halterneck dresses and skirts fitted to her womanly silhouette. An expensive woman, she naturally liked only the most expensive of things (this is clearly evident in the jewellery collection she has left behind) and this is what has made her a style icon and a symbol of old Hollywood glamour.

Vivien of Holloway is a great place to channel old Hollywood glamour with fitted and flared 1950s dresses, with a feminine halterneck just like Elizabeth.

A classic component Elizabeth Taylor's style was head scarves. Add a dash of Parisienne chic with a pinstripe fit and flare skirt.

Elizabeth looks absolutely stunning in this photo, and the green is a very classy and flattering colour. Emerald green is a classic colour and goes perfectly with any complexion, be it pale or tan.

Emerald green is a colour that can look great with  a spaghetti strapped dress for a summer's day, to a flattering wrap dress and even as a floor-length evening gown. Accessorize with Elizabeth's favourites, pearls and diamonds!
