This year marks six years since the world lost the iconic Elizabeth Taylor — but as Elton John sang about Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana before her, Elizabeth's legend will never fade.

The actress and activist, who was known for her unusual violet-coloured eyes, was the knock-'em-dead kind of lady who bowled men over and became best friends with all the women — as long as they were genuine.

By all accounts, Elizabeth was the opposite of a pandering Hollywood type; rather, she was rebellious, sassy, witty and indifferent, depending on which day you got her. If she didn't like you, she'd likely have had good reason — and she'd have no problem letting you know about it, as the legendary Joan Crawford once found out.

Elizabeth's modern-day equivalent is often considered to be Angelina Jolie in that they both worked tirelessly for humanitarian causes (Elizabeth was AIDS' biggest and most devoted crusader) and did things their own way, with little worry about what anyone else thought. The similarities are there, but the truth is that Liz was one of a kind. There will never be anyone who can touch the sides of the level of worship she received.

In honour of the icon, we dug up some of her most beautiful images . . . from a time when she was truly the most famous woman in the world.
