RIP Dame Elizabeth
Elizabeth Taylor has died at the age of 79. She was idolised by many women of my age group; not only for her beauty but her acting ability. Her relationship with Richard Burton was followed closely and was the talk of the steamie on many occasions, as were her subsequent marriages and divorces.
She suffered from various health problems over the years and was being treated, in Los Angeles, for symptoms of congestive heart failure.
Dame Elizabeth was a film star - there was nothing remotely 'celeb' about her. She was frighteningly glamorous and achieved a style of her own; a combination seldom seen these days.
