50th Anniversary of #Cleopatra starring Elizabeth Taylor. Taylor's floor sweeping costumes took advantage of a wide array of pleating, beading, and metallics, some fabrics even made of 24k gold. With no shortage of coin-necklaces, gold bangles, and jewel encrusted snakes, Cleopatra glistened in every jaw-dropping look. Costume Designers: Renie Conley, Vittorio Nino Novarese and Irene Sharaff. Tyranny of Style.
