The legendary queen of Hollywood is Kim Kardashian’s idol. She adores her and wants to be like her. Before Elizabeth’s death on 23rd March, Kim had an honor of interviewing her for the Harper’s Bazar magazine where she asked Liz what she should do to become Elizabeth Taylor. She started the interview saying, “You are my idol. But I’m six husbands and some big jewels behind. What should I do?” To which Liz replied, “Follow your passion; follow your heart, and the things you need will come.”
It seems that Kim is following Elizabeth’s advice. She filed for divorce with Kris Humphries just after 72 days of marriage. Elizabeth and Kim have many things in common. Both have thrown their husbands; have launched classic perfume brands but above all their passion for jewelry is out-of-this-world.
Both were teens when they first walked down the aisle. Elizabeth was 18 when she married to her first husband Conrad Hilton. The marriage lasted nine months. On the other side, Kim married producer Daman Thomas at 19. Elizabeth was married eight times to seven men and it seems that Kim has to walk a long way!
Not only this, like Elizabeth’s ‘White Diamonds’, ‘Passion’ and ‘Passion for Men’ Kim has also launched three scents ‘Kim Kardashian’, ‘Gold’ and ‘Love’ (a limited edition perfume). So at least here she is parallel to Liz.
But when it comes about jewelry Kim is far behind, though she has 20.5 carats $2 million sparkle and has launched her own jewelry line like Elizabeth’s. And of course we haven’t counted the acting talent in the list. Elizabeth was a legendary actress who won two Academy Awards and Kim Kardashian is just taking her first step with Tyler Perry’s ‘The Marriage Counselor’.
There jewelry itself is a broad topic of comparison and needs a separate discussion. But it is sure that Kim is following her idol and some day in some points she’ll replicate her.
