As you may know yesterday one of the greatest actresses and one of the most glamorous and beautiful woman had died. Elizabeth Taylor winner of two Oscars had appeared in her first film only at the age of nine. Though the first critics were very severe :
-She can't sing, she can't dance, she can't perform. What's more, her mother has to be one of the most unbearable women it has been my displeasure to meet-
Edward Muhl (production chief at Universal studio)
she was a big talent who was yet to be discovered. And so it happened. She appeared in her second movie "Lassie Come Home". At the age of 16 she had her first adult role playing a 21 year old woman who marries a communist spy. Afterwards big roles had started coming. She soon became as Time cover said :
-A jewel of great price, a true star sapphire-
Liz is not only famous for the incredible movie success but also for a very open private life. She had 8 marriages with 7 different people (she married Richard Burton twice). When asked why she married so often, Liz answered:
- I don’t know, honey. It sure beats the hell out of me-
She had a passion for fashion just like us. Liz loved jewelry and launched her collection called -"The Elizabeth Taylor Collection" that is sold in the auction house called Christie in America. She also had launched three fragrances: "Passion", "White Diamonds", and "Black Pearls".
Liz Taylor was one of the brightest star in the Hollywood sky. A star so glamorous, elegant and free spirited. A star even though has stopped shining people still can see it simply because of her greatness.

Since sales are officially over, it is time to do the SPRING SHOPPING. I love spring and summer, there are so many things that you can wear, so many outfits to do unlike winter when is so cold and unfortunately the choice of outfits are limited. When I wake up I don't think about what will suit me better or what jewelry I can put or even what colours I could experiment with. I just want to find the warmest sweater I have. But lets not talk about the past. Lets talk about the future. The future that brings so many bright colours and endless choices. The future that the Gods D&G, Dior, Pucci, Hermes, Chanel and ecc ecc dictated to us. Lets talk about the HOT SPRING FASHION TRENDS:
Rock 'n Roll
Under the Knee Skirts
They are very often part of my outfits, I enjoy wearing shorts mostly because they suit me better than skirts and jeans and also because you can experiment a lot weather you include shirt or sweater or even a normal t-shirt you still have the perfect outfit.
As I said in one of my previous posts, pink is definitely hot this spring.
They seem so cool and I was really happy when I found out that they are making a come back. Really pleasant for summer vacations. Don't you just love them all? Pucci and Dior are my faves.
One of the most elegant colours. White minimal look has been the choice for many fashion designers. I sure don't object since I prefer having elegant and simple but yet fabulous pieces in my closet :)
After the big success on the fall-winter fashion shows, animal print also took place in the spring collection.
Rock 'n Roll
In fact this look had never gone out of fashion. It's good to keep a little bit dark between all these bright colours, prints and flowers :)
Frankly not one of my favourite things but it was worth mentioning since one of the greatest minds of fashion has decided to include a look with them in their show. Start working on your abs girls (I know I have a lot of work to do).
So elegant. One of the reasons that I cant wait to graduate and start working is only because I'm dying to see myself in suit. Unfortunately I feel still young to wear them.
The sexiest colour ever. Red dress and red lipstick and your ready to conquer the world.
Flowers, squares, stripes everything is IN this spring. Really juvenile, refreshing and absolutely stunning.
Denim has been out of style lately but now it's making a big come back. Though, denim require you to be cautious because they are not easy to match.
I love it. It's really nice, boho and chilled.
This was one of the biggest fashion news this spring. So retro but yet so chick. As written in Vogue "Loud and proud colour combinations make for a dynamic, confident look".
Under the Knee Skirts
Despite the long dresses , skirts under the knee made their way to the top this spring.
