Elizabeth Taylor at Rogue Magazine China 2011 winter issue

I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can't posses radiance, you can only admire it. 
-Elizabeth Taylor (February 27,1932-March 23, 2011)





Rogue China continues to be inspired by style of Hollywood icons with its winter issue which features drawings of the late Elizabeth Taylor. Illustrated by David Downton.


Who wouldn't love Elizabeth Taylor? with her great portrayal of one of History's powerful female ruler "Cleopatra" and her humorous role at The Flintstones movie "Pearl Slaghoople". When you say Elizabeth Taylor the first thing that comes to my mind is "husbands" the 8 men who came into her life and the marriages that didn't work out, there's Conrad Hilton "her first husband" and Larry Fortensky "her 8th and last husband" i guess its her sophisticated style that made these 8 men fell in love with her, not only her sophisticated style i adore from her also her impeccable taste when it comes to jewelry it was reportedly worth $150 million.

Elizabeth Taylor was a fashion icon during her years as an active film star. In addition to her own purchases, MGM costumers "Edith Head and Helen Rose" helped Taylor choose clothes that emphasized her face, chest, and waist. Taylor Helped popularize Valentino and Halston's designs and in the 1980's "Schering-Plough" developed violet contact lenses, citing Taylors eyes as inspiration.
