Timeless Beauty: Stunning Photos of Elizabeth Taylor in the 1980s and 1990s

One of the most beautiful women in the world Elizabeth Taylor had it all: the violet, almond-shaped eyes, the creamy skin, the pouty lips and raven hair.

Began her career as a child actress in the early 1940s, and was one of the most popular stars of classical Hollywood cinema in the 1950s, Taylor continued her career successfully into the 1960s, and remained a well-known public figure for the rest of her life.

In 1999, the American Film Institute named her the seventh-greatest female screen legend.

Taylor is also considered a gay icon, and received widespread recognition for her HIV/AIDS activism.

After her death, GLAAD issued a statement saying that she "was an icon not only in Hollywood, but in the LGBT community, where she worked to ensure that everyone was treated with the respect and dignity we all deserve", and Sir Nick Partridge of the Terrence Higgins Trust called her "the first major star to publicly fight fear and prejudice towards AIDS". According to Paul Flynn of The Guardian, she was "a new type of gay icon, one whose position is based not on tragedy, but on her work for the LGBTQ community". Speaking of her charity work, former President Bill Clinton said at her death, "Elizabeth's legacy will live on in many people around the world whose lives will be longer and better because of her work and the ongoing efforts of those she inspired."

These stunning photos of Elizabeth Taylor in the 1980s and 1990s show that she was not only very talented, but also a timeless beauty.
