Almost immediately she [Elizabeth Taylor] became a presence on the Mismaloya set and thereafter came every day without fail. What’s more, she came dressed for battle: ripely armored in sultry outfits, a series of tiny custom-made bikinis or bikini bottom with loose top and no bra (Victor: “You literally could see the complete upper structure”). She would stand just behind the camera during filming and then move in between takes, kneeling over Burton, whispering into his ear, fussing with his hair (often to his evident displeasure). Ava got the message, averted her eyes when the camera stopped. Besides, she liked Liz well enough. They had too much in common to become enemies now, the two femmes fatales, survivors of the MGM trenches made equally unfit for normal life.

Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
