I came across a photo archive of Elizabeth Taylor recently.  While it began with recent years and looked backward, I prefer to focus on the beautiful shots of her in the 60s…this one, in particular.  Not the ingenue or widow or aging starlet, but a confident, worldly woman, for whom there were few things that […]
