So when her items go on auction in the next few months at Christie’s, expect to see millions of dollars worth of jewelry going for sale.
And among those eager to get a piece of the collection is Kimora Lee Simmons. Reveals the fashion diva:
"All my life I have said this, I'm so emotional about Liz Taylor. My whole life I have really patterned after Elizabeth. She's always been my icon. If you think about it, I can explain it forever.”
And Kimora goes further, talking about Liz, her love life, fragrance and more. Adds KLS about Taylor:
"First she had 165 husbands, I love it. I have a good one now but I'm not against having 165 if I could. Think about my first fragrance. It's the shape of a diamond shell with the ring around it. All that came from Elizabeth Taylor because it's about giving you a fragrance that is lush and giving you a little something extra. With her you get a little dream or a gift on the side, I'm the same."
As for the jewelry, Kimmy adds:
"I built my entire jewelry collection with her in mind. I will definitely go and bid. The last time I went to an auction I came home with all Versace stuff. I got a lot of it. I was probably the biggest buyer. I got his bed, DNA are in those sheets!"
We’ll have to wait and see how much Kimora will spend.
But on a positive note, proceeds from the auction will go towards benefiting the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation and amfAR.
