In the recent times, two women who have managed to grab the maximum space in media are Elizabeth Taylor and Kim Kardashian. Both incredibly beautiful and famous women have been in news for quite some time but for very different reasons.
Earlier in 2011, in March the world lost a legendary actress in Elizabeth Taylor due to heart failure. But that didn’t stop her from being in news. After her, it was her jewellery collection that remained in news for most of the year. The 300 pieces jewellery worth £18.8 million were auctioned at Christie’s in New York in the end of 2011.
The next woman who was in news the most was Kim Kardashian. Every news channel and numerous publications covered the juicy details of her engagement, marriage and subsequent divorce with Kris Humphries. The world watched in awe her huge engagement ring and scrutinized her wedding dress and all the preparations. But as the year 2011 came to an end, these two women came back in news again and this time together!
Elizabeth Taylor’s jewellery was auctioned at Christie’s and Kim Kardashian bought three jade bracelets that belonged to Taylor and were created by Los Angeles jewellery designer Lorraine Schwartz. She bought them for a cool £ 42,000, which is way above the estimated price £ 5,000. The designer, also a friend of both Kim and Taylor, mentioned to the tabloids that Taylor wore the black, white and lavender bangles nearly every day.
Kim Kardashian always considered Elizabeth Taylor as her idol. She was also the last person to interview Taylor for a magazine. When asked about the bangles, Kardashian said, “If you have a piece of jade, energy goes into the piece and you absorb the energy. So I can feel Elizabeth in the piece.”
