Remembering Elizabeth Taylor: Her L.A. Destinations

by guestofaguest · March 23, 2011

[Vanity Fair cover 2010 via] The world lost one of its most famous and prolific leading ladies this morning with the passing of Elizabeth Taylor at age 79. The face of the Hollywood's Golden Age and an icon of American cinema, Taylor personified Hollywood glamor as much in her career as a screen siren as her personal life, with eight marriages (to seven different men), most outrageous jewelry collection, famous friends including a very special bond with Michael Jackson, charity work, early association with Kabbalah (before Madonna and Demi), and legendary purple eyes. She was a longtime resident of L.A. and fixture of Hollywood society who frequented at all the best spots around the city. Here's a look at the places around town where Taylor spent her time over the years.
