I had every intention of write many posts this morning, but I got distracted by reading, and looking at the photos of, Elizabeth Taylor’s Christie’s New York auction that happened earlier this week. Her estate of Haute Couture clothing and her legendary jewelry were sold off in a record braking auction.
Now, I was never an Elizabeth Taylor fan. She’s a fine actress and beautiful, but I grew up knowing her only for her many divorces, her affair with a married man, rehab, and being a friend to Michael Jackson.
But I just couldn’t stop looking at her beautiful jewels, and her collection of clothes! If I had been in NYC this week, I probably would have visited Christie’s like many of my friends there had, and taken a gander that them all in person.
I really am not interested in who bought them, but many of the pieces went for DOUBLE what was expected! I guess she is an icon, and the objects purchased were secondary.
