In a world according to the Kardashians, I am a 'Kim' - I am not nearly as gutsy as the Khloes and Kourtneys of the world, who feel comfortable saying and doing most everything that they want. I'm a little more mild mannered. And I'm not an outdoorsy girl in the slightest (Kim and I are definitely on the same page about that). We also both love Elizabeth Taylor. While I'm not lucky enough to be like Kim and share the luscious dark hair, strong eyes, or womanly curves with Elizabeth Taylor (nor do I have photographers eager to capture me looking like my most favorite actress), I do certainly love and admire her career and her life.
In honor of the Harper's Bazaar cover girl (Kim), who was lucky enough to channel and interview our idol Elizabeth, here is a 'Then and Now' to celebrate these two bombshells:
Kim's photographs in last year's Allure Magazine bore a striking resemblance to photos taken of Elizabeth on the set of her Texan epic Giant
In the same magazine, Kim struck a pose very similar to a young Elizabeth (again on the Giant set), both sunning their stunning faces
This month's Harper's cast Kim in one of Elizabeth's most famous roles, Cleopatra (with a K)
