Elizabeth Taylor has died

Elizabeth Taylor's weddings have been the subject of many blog posts here - a friend once told me that she'd correctly answered an Elizabeth Taylor question at trivia night because of this blog. Taylor died this morning of congestive heart failure, and with all the interest in looking back at her work, it seems like a good idea to have one place where you can see all of her weddings.

Elizabeth Taylor's Weddings

Wedding #1 to Nicky Hilton - her gown was inspired by her Father of the Bride dress.

Wedding #2 to Michael Wilding - a low-key event that lasted five years and produced two children.

Wedding #3 to Michael Todd - a marriage cut short by tragedy; Todd died in a fatal plane crash one year after the wedding.

Wedding #4 to Eddie Fisher - I called her gown black, and then a helpful reader pointed out to me that it was actually a beautiful shade of green. Either way, she looks lovely.

Weddings #5 & #6 to Richard Burton - their union(s) created the Taylor-Burton diamond, and showed a different side of her fashion sense.

Wedding #7 to John Warner - he was a politician; the two met on a blind date. The marriage lasted for five years.

Wedding #8 to Larry Fortenski - this notable wedding cost 2 million dollars, and took place at Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch.

Gossip fueled talk about wedding #9 - Taylor took to her Twitter account to clear up the false rumors.

Taylor died 3/23/2011 surrounded by her family: four children, ten grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
