Film legend Elizabeth Taylor had as much impact off the silver screen as she did on. Her glitzy personal style featured curve-hugging gowns and diamonds galore, a look that sealed her steamy sex-symbol image and kept the handsome leading men lined up.

The actress herself best summed up the look: "Enough is never enough," she said of her love of glittering glamour.

Taylor's style made waves in her day, but the ripple effect is still being felt, as her sartorial sense has rubbed off on a new generation of starlets happy to crib the iconic actress's smoldering appeal. Modern day style apprentices include Kim Kardashian, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lopez, to name a few.
