The 1950s were a low point in terms of style and clothing, she seemed to look much older than she actually was. Seeing her on 'What's My Line' you wouldn't believe her to be a 22 year old woman.

She looked smashing up until the Early 1960s. Lost her looks (IMO) sometime in the mid-60s, becoming blowsy & hard-looking. She had a rebound (looks-wise) sometime in the 1980s and still was gorgeous up until the time of her last marriage in he Early 90s. (see clip)
And for all of her drinking, smoking, drugging and carrying on, she was still attractive an attractive woman during her last few decades as a senior citizen.

Elizabeth was at her most breathtaking in the years from when she married Mike Todd and the cheating with Richard Burton in Italy during Cleopatra, and that whole period with Burton. Now, IMO she never looked bad...even when she looked bad. Even when she was a fat Virginia housewife to Jack Warner. Best picture of Fat Elizabeth I ever saw was in some biography someone wrote. Lee Israel or Kitty Kelly? Who knows. There was a photo of her stuffing food into her mouth, her gut distended, fat and big hair, and the caption read, "All our lives women wanted to look like Elizabeth Taylor, and now, God help us, we do!"

A gay man should already know the answer. Prophetess Paglia has already revealed it. Taylor never looked better than at the after-awards parties in 1961 when she won the Best Actress Oscar for 'Butterfield 8'. Six weeks on from her emergency life-saving tracheotomy, still bearing the scar, she reigned triumphant.

Circa 1960. At that point she was all grown up and sexy as hell, and her face and figure were at their absolute best. Damn, she had a shape, back in the day, a perfect curvy feminine hourglass!
And the elegant fashions of the era kept her tasteless dress sense from going into full flower. That happened later in the 1960s...

I've never seen the entire film, but channel surfing once took me to a channel showing "Butterfield 8". I was stunned at how very beautiful Elizabeth Taylor was in the scene that was showing.
I had already seen her in many other films from both before and after this film, but I still remember just taking in how stunningly beautiful she was.
It was also interesting to see her acting in a scene with Eddie Fisher.
This all happened long after she had married and divorced Burton, so at the time she was much older than the woman on the screen.
But, seeing her in that scene in that movie, Wow! Stunning.
BTW, I've still never seen the film.

It's so hard to pic one photo of Dame Liz, but I'm impressionable and like the one she chose for the advert of her Violet Eyes perfume right before she died. I believe it was taken at one of Eddie Fisher's Vegas shows at the Tropicana, but I could be wrong.
She honestly never looked bad, even with her weight fluctuations. The big haired, blowsy Liz still looked heads and tails than most women walking down the street in the 60s and 70s.

Earlier I said the Puerto Vallarta/Sandpiper years, and those were good, but now I'm thinking her lush peak was the Mike Todd marriage. She absolutely glowed. I wonder if they would have stayed married? In a different scenario, without Eddie Fisher as a transitional husband, would she have left Mike for Burton? And I wonder which one was really the best match, Todd or Burton? Would there have been less drinking with Mike? Poor Mike must have been fuming in the great beyond, observing the Taylor-Burton love story.
