Elizabeth Taylor's vintage and classic ads

Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. She outlived them with her diamonds, husbands and all and earned her place as the last iconic star of the century. When the Hollywood roles got fewer, she took on a different path, that of a humanitarian, working tirelessly for the Aids cause.

Elizabeth Taylor passed away on the 23 March 2011 but her place in Hollywood history burns bright.

Besides the movies that made her legendary such as Cleopatra and Giant, she also graced a number of advertisements, from as recent as that of Violet Eyes launched last April 2010 to vintage ads from the 50's and 60's including Max Factor, Lux, Lustre Cream Shampoo and even Whitman chocolates.

The lady with the violent eyes - RIP.
