Elizabeth Taylor Looked Amazing Even Without Diamonds (PHOTO)

Considered one of the most beautiful women to ever grace the earth, Elizabeth Taylor captivated with her violet-colored eyes and amazing performances during Hollywood's golden age. The London native had a sartorial sense to be reckoned with, and was often noted for her curve-hugging dresses and tiaras, not to mention the fact that she was one of the few leading ladies who was always dripping in diamonds (and men!).

In this 1950s photograph we see a demure-looking Taylor (who reminds us a bit of Ms. Liza Minnelli). We love her sexy white dress shirt, belted to showcase her feminine figure. We're surprised she was pictured sans diamonds, but her sultry red lips more than make up for it. Her thick, full eyebrows frame her iconic face and have us wondering if it's time to put down the tweezers.
