Big girls need big diamonds

No, that’s not from the song “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend,” though Marilyn was quite convincing. The above is a quote from Elizabeth Taylor, who died yesterday. She was 79. I’ve sadly not seen many of her movies, including classics such as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof or Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (though I love the play). But she was gorgeous, audacious and taught us all the value of a gigantic, sparkling piece of jewelry. And not just monetary – but how fun it is to wear something huge and sparkly.

There are a lot of obits out there about Ms. Taylor right now. Simon Doonan’s at Slate is my favorite.
