Nude Portrait Of A 24-Year Old Elizabeth Taylor Surfaces

I'm careful about what I post here but I like the story behind this a lot. The picture was taken by one of Taylor's closest friends, actor and photographer Roddy McDowall. He persuaded her to pose naked by promising her it would be done tastefully. She then gave it to Todd, her third husband, as a present after he proposed in 1956 – the pair married a few months later but the relationship was tragically short-lived. Todd was killed 13 months after their wedding day when his private plane crashed during a storm over New Mexico. Crazy to me how even a nude photo can come out with grace from this woman. Rip.

DailyMail has the full details.
