Elizabeth Taylor’s home, which she invited Architectural Digest to photograph this past spring (the shoot was under way at the time of her death), was a four-bedroom house on a secluded, wooded acre in Bel Air, California. She bought it in the early 1980s and refined it with the help of interior designer and close friend Waldo Fernandez.
In recent years nearly every room was awash in blues and lavenders, shades echoing Taylor’s famous violet eyes.
This photograph is from 1997 at her Bel Air estate. She is wearing wearing a custom-made Moroccan caftan that was a gift from publisher Malcolm Forbes.
