Elizabeth Taylor's 8 Wedding Dresses in Photos
Never a bridesmaid, always a bride, said no one ever—except Elizabeth Taylor! One of Dame Elizabeth Taylor's first major film roles as an adult (she famously broke out as a star in National Velvet at the age of 13) was as a bride opposite Spencer Tracy (in the titular role reprised later by Steve Martin) in the original Father of the Bride in And, well, she must have loved playing that part, because Liz would infamously walk down the aisle 8 times (to 7 husbands, marrying Richard Burton twice) over the next 40 years.
Her first wedding took place in , at the age of 18, and she didn't stop until her last stint as bride in , at the age of In honor of Dame Liz Taylor's birthday, we took a look back at all of her wedding days and more importantly, her wedding dresses and over the top jewelry!
1. Conrad "Nicky" Hilton, May 6,
For her first trip down the aisle, Taylor said "I do" to Conrad "Nicky" Hilton (yes, he was great-uncle to Paris and Nicky Hilton). A then year old Taylor chose a very 's gown to say her vows in front of of their nearest and dearest.
The Helen Rose designed gown — Rose also designed Grace Kelly's wedding dress and Taylor's similar look in the original Father of the Bride — sold at a London auction for $, in
The couple would divorce a year later.
2. Michael Wilding, February 21st,
After her short-lived marriage to Conrad Hilton, Liz married Michael Wilding in London. Wilding was 20 years her senior so naturally she chose a more demure, serious look in a modest flared suit with a white collar. This wedding look was also designed by Helen Rose. She would remain married to Wilding until , when she began a fling with film producer Michael Todd.
3. Michael Todd, February 2nd,
Taylor referred to film producer Michael Todd as one of the great loves of her life (alongside her jewelry and Richard Burton). The couple was married in Acapulco, Mexico, where Taylor wore a very dramatic hooded silk organza gown, with her 29 carat diamond engagement ring. This was sadly her only marriage to not end in divorce, Todd died in a private jet crash in
4. Eddie Fisher, May 12,
Next up, Michael Todd's best friend (and husband to Debbie Reynolds — Liz's maid of honor at her wedding to Todd) Eddie Fisher. Yes, he was also dad to Star Wars' Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher. The two began a love affair after Todd's death, and you guessed it, that led to marriage number 4 for Liz — and a carat engagement bracelet. The couple married in a synagogue in Las Vegas. Looks like after Acapulco Liz had a penchant for wedding day hoods and colored dresses. This time choosing a green silk dress complete with a hood and long sleeves.
5. Richard Burton, March 15th
Before there was Brangelina and Bennifer, there was "Liz and Dick." The drama-inducing duo met on the set of Cleopatra and began a scandalous affair. They would wed (for the first time) in Montreal in
Cleopatra's costume designer, Irene Sharaff, crafted Taylor's now iconic canary yellow babydoll dress. She completed the look with hyacinths and lilies of the valley weaved into a dramatic braided updo and topped off the dress with a diamond and emerald Bulgari brooch. "The only word Elizabeth knows in Italian is Bulgari," Burton once said of Taylor.
6. Richard Burton (AGAIN), October 10,
After 10 dramatic years together, "Liz and Dick" (we won't judge if you watched the Lindsay Lohan Lifetime movie, we did too) divorced in Not content to only pledge their eternal love once, the couple re-married 16 months later in Botswana. This time Liz went full on 's free spirit in a tie-dye Gina Fratini-designed dress in all colors of the rainbow, embroidered with tiny feathers.
The doomed lovers would divorce for the second time in
7. Senator John Warner, December 4th,
After the many ups and downs of her Hollywood marriages, Taylor's seventh and most quiet wedding, found her hitched to Senator John Warner. The couple said their "I do"s in an intimate winter wedding ceremony on his farm in Virginia. She wore a violet cashmere dress topped with a tweed and fur coat, and matching turban. Playing politician's wife didn't sit well with Liz and she would divorce for a seventh time in
8. Larry Fortensky, October 6th,
You know what they say, eighth time's the charm (nobody says that). For her last, and most over the top, turn as bride, Dame Liz Taylor would wed Larry Fortensky, whom she met at the Betty Ford Center, at the age of The paparazzi-stalked (one even parachuted into the ultra-secure festivities) event took place at Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch in Santa Ynez Valley, California. Taylor wore a pale yellow lace Valentino gown (and very deep tan) to marry her last hubby in front of guests including Liza Minnelli, Eddie Murphy, Nancy Reagan, Diane von Furstenberg, Arsenio Hall, George Hamilton, Merv Griffin, Quincy Jones, Macaulay Culkin, and Brooke Shields. This would not end well for Liz, the couple divorced five years later. Just last year, People published never before seen images of the wedding, shot by Herb Ritts, released by the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
For Hulu's murder-mystery comedy Only Murders in the Building, costume designer Dana Covarrubias was gifted an arguably impossible task: Make an audience forget Selena Gomez is Selena Gomez. The pop icon, who had not appeared as a series regular on a television show since her time on Disney's Wizards of Waverly Placealmost a decade ago, would be playing Mabel, a young, vaguely unknowable woman with a biting wit and a penchant for true crime. She would, of course, be Gomez, but she couldn't look like Gomez, lest viewers be pulled from the show's universe.
Most importantly, Mabel would need to mesh well with her troupe of amateur criminologists, rounded out by two older white men: The affable Steve Martin (playing veteran actor Charles Haden-Savage) and kooky Martin Short (playing theater director Oliver Putman). “The main concern when looking at the costumes would be, ‘How do we bring Selena Gomez, this icon, into this world and have her physically standing next to Steve and Marty and not look super weird?’” Covarrubias says.
The solution might have seemed straightforward: Ease back on Gomez's signature style, perhaps drape her in dull hues or pedestrian basics. Slap her in a baseball cap and a tote bag and call it good. But such an approach wouldn't have been true to Mabel, either. The character shoulders a heavy burden, a sense of secrecy that screams for anyone approaching to watch out. That trauma motivates her search for victim Tim Kono's killer throughout the season.
“Her whole concept was basically that her costumes were a type of armor,” Covarrubias says. “So she's using these really bright colors in the same way as an animal with a brightly colored coat: ‘Beware. Danger. Leave me alone. Back off.’” Balancing these two competing motivations—settling Gomez in reality, while elevating Mabel's own mien—gave the designer an intriguing challenge. She decided Mabel's style would be immediately eye-catching, enough that it would draw a double-take on the streets of Manhattan, but not so dramatic that it'd invite further inquiry. This way, the character could be both intriguing and safely anonymous.
Covarrubias achieved this look with a parade of flashy colors imbued in soft textures: yellow faux fur, paint-splattered denim, rainbow knits, pink feathers, crimson vinyl, and white shearling. She frequently drew upon the color palate of The Hardy Boys books that Mabel grew up reading, keeping an eye out for bright blues, teals, reds and golds as she thrifted in her home borough of Brooklyn.
As a result, Gomez's fashion is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the wacky Hulu series. To get a better idea of how each fit came together—and where one might find decent dupes—ELLE.com asked Covarrubias for a rundown of each ensemble. As new episodes drop in the coming weeks, we'll update this post with more inspiration from the designer's (and, of course, Mabel's) closet.

For Gomez's first appearance in episode 1, Covarrubias wanted to make a quick and powerful impression: “We wanted the first thought to be, Who is she?” The designer, who has previously worked on shows including Ramy and Master of None, dressed Gomez in the yellow faux fur jacket, matching sweater and plaid pants that immediately lured paparazzi while the actress was on set in December
Covarrubias chose the bold yellow as a symbolic nod to the Mexican heritage she shares with Gomez. “Marigolds are very important in Mexican iconography and culture,” she explains. “They can represent grief and resurrection, passion and creativity. So it just fit very perfectly for [Mabel's] character, because she's held back by this thing that happened in her past, and she's also an artist. So we knew we wanted to use those color tones, the reds and the golds and yellows, for her character a lot.” The sweater and pants were both thrifted, while the coat is Michael Kors and the boots Kurt Geiger.

For a more relaxed look during Mabel's downtime, Covarrubias selected a black camisole, sweatpants and a beige cardigan. It was essential that Gomez never looked too overdressed, especially when she was spending time alone in her apartment sketching portraits or researching her old friend Tim Kono.
“My background is mostly doing comedies,” Covarrubias says. “And I think why I have continued to work in that world is because the best thing to do in comedy is to not go too over the top with costumes. You want to keep it grounded in reality—because that can make the comedy really pop.”

For Gomez's third look in the first episode, she donned a pair of vibrant coveralls, chunky Chelsea boots, and a shearling coat. The heavy shoes are a recurring staple in Mabel's wardrobe, Covarrubias says, as a way to accentuate her spiky exterior.
These subtle but important choices helped Gomez get into character every time she tried a new outfit. “In the very first [fitting], after one or two looks she tried on, [Gomez] was already like, ‘Oh yeah, I get it. I get who she is. I feel it,’” Covarrubias says. “It's not a silhouette that you see her personally wearing all the time. It was able to push her into the character, I feel like.”

Out of Mabel's extensive sweater collection, it's this colorful confetti sweater that earned a spot as Covarrubias's favorite. She found the piece while poking around Brooklyn for vintage clothes; she makes regular trips to Beacon's Closet, a beloved NYC thrift shop, and also frequents luxury resale site TheRealReal.com for inexpensive costuming treasures (“It's amazing for film because we're on a tight budget.”)
Throughout the series, Mabel often wears thick wool while Martin and Short opt for silk, satin or cotton. “Her character is a knitter,” Covarrubias explains. “So we wanted to find some really wonderful chunky, loose knits that looked like she could have made them.”

Twisted Gold Hoop Earrings
Later in the episode, Mabel changes into a slightly darker ensemble—a black turtleneck and taupe mini skirt combo—as she eases into investigative mode. It's one of her more subdued looks throughout the show, which Covarrubias says was a counterintuitive choice to make.
“The thing that you really want to do with someone like Selena, because she has such amazing style herself, is to up the style, up up up up up,” she says. “Do it super fashionable. But that's just not true to the script, and it's not true to Mabel.

In a particularly important flashback scene during Mabel's Hardy Boys days, she's at a party, where she shimmers in a sequin dress and zebra-print coat—arguably Gomez's most arresting look of the season so far. The coat was a gorgeous set piece, but it was also a practical choice: “It was really freezing outside when we were shooting,” Covarrubias says, laughing. “So we were also looking for something that would keep our actors really cozy and warm.”

When Mabel is out sleuthing with her podcast team, which includes Martin's Charles and Short's Oliver, it's easy to forget she's also a talented artist, currently in the process of remodeling the apartment she's staying in. To point audiences back to this key personality trait, Covarrubias dressed Gomez in quintessential artist's garb, including this paint-splattered denim jumpsuit. Finding an exact replica will be tricky, but it's easy enough to create your own with some fabric paints and a trusty pair of coveralls.

Although Covarrubias often attempted to separate Mabel's style from Gomez's own, there were certain staples from the pop superstar's wardrobe that she couldn't bear to part with, including Gomez's favorite hoop earrings. “That actually is one of the things that I saw Selena doing in her personal style that I love on her. Every time I see her in a photo, and she has those big hoops on, I just love it,” she says.
Mabel wears hoops of all shapes in sizes throughout the show, most of them from jeweler Jennifer Fisher, but for this particular outfit she dons a pair of big gold tubes. For a slightly less expensive dupe, try the recommendations below.

For Mabel's more relaxed moments at home, Covarrubias often opted to drape Gomez in cozy tees or cardigans, such as this red geometric-patterned duster, paired with a simple black v-neck.
Even when Mabel's lounging, the designer says, “You still want to have her be stylish and cool and young and bring in that hip New York City world.”
Geo Print Jacquard Knit Duster
MIHOLL Women's Short Sleeve V-Neck Shirt
If Covarrubias had to pick, this fit, which pairs a PVC trench coat with a beige tailored vest and a smooth ivory turtleneck, might be her favorite of all the outfits she assembled for Gomez.
“That [trench] was really perfect,” she says. “Because of the PVC and the shine, it has that very current, Y2K, early s vibe. But then, at the same time, the silhouette is very classic trench. It's bringing in that [sense of the] detective world at the same time that it's bringing in the fashion world.”

There are several blink-and-you'll-miss-it fashion moments for Gomez throughout the series; she swaps outfits so often it's a wonder Mabel has enough space in her apartment to hold the clothes. Quick wardrobe changes like these gave Covarrubias the chance to play with riskier looks—like this plaid flannel and orange pants combo—in a way that wouldn't distract from what was happening in the scene.
The designer also made use of a pair of Rellery necklaces that Gomez wore with multiple looks throughout the first season, as an homage to her heritage. “The [necklaces] have two little tiny engraved marigolds on them,” Covarrubias says.
