Vanity Fair is my favorite magazine for many reasons, including the Hollywood history they so often provide. This is true of the photos I chose for today’s post. I was born in 1976, so I found it interesting that they decided to feature Elizabeth Taylor’s trip to Iran that same year.
According to Vanity Fair, “In 1976, Elizabeth Taylor took her first and only trip to Iran, photographer Firooz Zahedi in tow. The captivating, exotically colorful pictures that resulted will debut this month at LACMA; the untold story of Zahedi and Taylor’s artistic and personal adventure.”
Interesting that Liz probably wouldn’t have the same opportunity today with the political upheaval going on throughout the Middle East. I’m loving the color of the photos. Look at Liz’s outfits!
