It is difficult for me to believe that Elizabeth Taylor has passed away. Her name is known throughout the world for her acting and beauty. The first movie I saw her in was “Little Women” in the role of Amy. I don’t remember watching all of “Cleopatra,” but images of her in the Cleopatra costume is iconic. In high school, I watched her in “Taming of the Shrew” when we read the original Shakespeare play. She was a very compelling Katharina. She could act it all and was stunning while doing so. Her violet eyes lit up the screen and commanded your attention. Her private life seemed to be just as dramatic as the lives of the women she portrayed. I choose to remember Elizabeth Taylor as a beauty icon, with natural beauty and glamor.
