Elizabeth Taylor, 'world's most beautiful woman,' RIP
Dame Elizabeth Taylor, one of the 20th Century's biggest movie stars, has died in Los Angeles at the age of 79.
The double Oscar-winning actress had a long history of ill health and was being treated for symptoms of congestive heart failure.
Dame Elizabeth's most famous films included National Velvet, Cleopatra and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
She was equally well-known for her glamour and film partnership with Richard Burton, one of seven husbands.
In her prime, she was arguably one of the world's greatest actresses and most beautiful women.
PLUS: That singular face, and those violet eyes, virtually made for the magic of movies (thanks, Arman!)--
And a tribute by Paul Newman that aired on the Turner Classic Movies channel, with scenes from Taylor's iconic films--
