Cleopatra's Gorgeous 50th Anniversary

The film.  The face.  The fashion.  Timeless.

50th glamorous years after stealing the hearts of audiences around the world, "Cleopatra" reigns supreme.  If you haven't seen the film.... stop reading this and go watch it.  There are really no words to describe the stunning set and costume design work.  The detail, unparalleled.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Academy Award-winning movie, starring none other than Elizabeth Taylor, the film has been restored and just screened at the Cannes Film Festival as an official selection.  

The world premiere screening brought out celebrities in droves, and was hosted by Jessica Chastain, who wore one of Liz's coveted 52 karat sapphire necklaces.  And in true Elizabeth fashion, following the viewing, a reception was held displaying some of Ms. Taylor's personal jewelry collection and an auction with proceeds benefitting her charity, The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.  

Take a look at some stills from this breathtaking film to celebrate!
