Queen Liz

Liz Taylor is certainly an icon for many reasons. Her extremely enviable jewelry collection being one of those. In 1957 she was given an antique diamond tiara worth an estimated $60,000-$80,000. Liz had this to say about it in A Life in Jewelry "When [third husband Mike Todd] gave me this tiara, he said, 'You're my queen, and I think you should have a tiara,' "I wore it for the first time when we went to the Academy Awards. It was the most perfect night, because Mike's film Around the World in 80 Days won for Best Picture. It wasn't fashionable to wear tiaras then, but I wore it anyway because he was my king."


What's the boldest fashion statement you've ever made? Would you wear Liz' crown jewels?
