The legendary screen siren - Elizabeth Taylor - may have passed to spirit last week (my tribute will be posted in the next few days) but the fascination over every detail of her life persists!
For example, in anticipation of a surge of interest at their eatery, Lori's Diner (San Francisco) is placing a lavender tulle cocktail dress on display which was once adorned (and owned) by old violet eyes!
I strolled by there bright-and-early this morning to take a gander - but, unfortunately - the valuable piece of memorabilia was hidden behind a shroud (of sorts) until the official unveiling at 2 p.m. this afternoon.
In spite of the drapery, though, a few precise beams of light managed to slip through the sacred curtain - and ultimately - ended up sending a thousand little rainbows this way 'n that inside the popular eatery.
Hollywood Historian - Barry Barsamian - loaned the coveted piece to the restaurant so that fans and patrons alike could enjoy it.
Pop in and take a peak.
After all, it's a dazzling reminder of the fine swath that Ms. Taylor cut, whenever she ventured out the door for a public appearance (late or not).
See 'ya there!
Elizabeth was still magnetic at age 79!
