Elizabeth Taylor Designer History:
Born February 27th, 1932 in Hampstead, London, Lady Night - Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor was the second child of Francis Lenn Taylor and Sara Viola Warmbrodt, who were Americans living in England at the time. Her father was an art seller and her mother a former theatrical performer whose stage name was Sara Sothern. Elizabeth started following ballet classes at the age of 3. Taylor grew up and graduated with a diploma from University High School in Los Angeles, California on January 26, 1950.
Soon after World War II started, her family made the decision to go back to the United States, and relocate to California. Taylor showed up in her first movie at the age of nine for Universal Studios. Universal let her agreement drop, and she agreed with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer for the film "Lassie Come Home" (1943), that received great interest. That film starred boy star Roddy McDowall, with whom Elizabeth would later on share a life time friendly relationship. Following several more movies, there was another external agreement with 20th Century Fox, where she showed up in her very first leading role and reached child star reputation performing Velvet Brown, a little girl who trained a horse to win the Grand National in Clarence Brown's movie "National Velvet" in 1944 with Mickey Rooney. Elizabeth Taylor received the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her play in "Butterfield 8" in 1960, which co-starred then husband Eddie Fisher, and once more in 1966 for "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?", which co-starred then-husband Richard Burton. In 1963, she became the top compensated film superstar at the time when she agreed on a $1-million agreement to perform the leading role in the luxurious creation of "Cleopatra" film.
Aside from perfumes, Taylor also carries a love for diamond jewelry. In 2005 she presented the House of Taylor Jewelry, after teaming up with Jack and Monty Abramov of Mirabelle Luxury Concepts based in Los Angeles. In 2005, House of Taylor Jewelry established an agreement with marketing and design company Kathy Ireland Worldwide, with over $1-billion in annual revenue. Taylor has also dedicated a lot of effort and energy to AIDS associated donations and fund-collecting charities. She aided in the starting of the American Foundation for AIDS Research after the passing away of her past co-star and good friend, Rock Hudson. She also established Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation (ETAF), her own AIDS foundation.
On the 31st of December in the year 1999 Elizabeth Taylor was made a Lady Night - Dame of the British Empire.
