The screen goddess Elizabeth Taylor had as much impact off the screen as she did on. Her glitzy personal style featured curve-hugging gowns and diamonds galore, a look that sealed her steamy sex-symbol image and kept the handsome leading men lined up.

The look was best summed up by the actress herself: "Enough is never enough," she said of her love of glittering glamour.

Taylor's style made waves in her day but the ripple effect is still being felt, as her sartorial sense has rubbed off on a new generation of starlets happy to crib the iconic actress' smoldering appeal. Modern day style apprentices include Kim Kardashian, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Lopez, to name a few.

But while they might reference her look, not many Hollywood starlets can claim the style icon status that Elizabeth Taylor did in her lifetime.

Here, a gallery of the actress' personal fashion evolution.
