This book brings together a collection of photographs and commentary celebrating Elizabeth Taylor's timeless sense of style, both on-screen and off, which ran the gamut from her high glamour Hollywood gowns and jewelry to her extraordinary earthy beauty which transcended every embellishment of fashion.

She was a star who was both idolized as a screen goddess and viewed by her adoring public as someone who was approachable, relatable and fun. Her style was a synthesis of her on-screen persona and her private life, both often turbulent and thrilling. This luminous photographic retrospective of the great roles and public and private moments captures the style and essence of one of Hollywood's last great stars. In her unforgettable performances in films like A Place in the Sun, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Butterfield 8, she sustained an on-screen image of smoldering passion and a dark, private toughness which was tempered by her overt, almost alarming, vulnerability. As one of the most photographed celebrities in the world, the public saw her personal style from 1940s starlet to sex kitten of the 50s and 60s to the perennial divorcée of the 70s to the compassionate activist of her later years.

Elizabeth Taylor: Her Life in Style is a visual celebration of the life and times of a Hollywood legend whose image will endure forever as a symbol of glamour and beauty.
