Elizabeth Taylor Had Some Huge, Expensive Jewelry
The estate of Elizabeth Taylor will be auctioning off her entire jewelry collection--valued at $30 million (MILLION)--and The Associated Press were granted exclusive access to photograph these bejeweled behemoths. The snakelet watch is awesomely tacky and beautiful.
Betty Ford Has Died
Former First Lady Betty Ford, wife of President Gerald Ford, has passed away at the age of 93. Ford was a courageous survivor of both alcohol addiction and breast cancer who went on to champion such issues as the Equal Rights Amendment. She famously founded The Betty Ford Center, a world-renowned treatment clinic for substance abuse. She had been ailing in recent years, but no official cause of death has been released.
Elizabeth Taylor Putting On Makeup Like A Boss
From the obscure 1974 film "The Driver's Seat," in which she plays an insane spinster with a death wish, here's Elizabeth Taylor very intensely applying makeup. Plus a bonus scene from the same movie where she flips out about stain resistant fabric and takes off her top. Both clips demonstrate why she is an icon. Rest in peace.
