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.
