In Kim’s latest Instagram selfie, she copied a famous Liz photo. The reality star, 32, stands in front of a classic photo of Elizabeth, where she’s seen only from the eyes up – with a towel on her head. In both pictures, the ladies flash their giant engagement rings. Kim captioned the photo “#Myidol”
It’s not the first time Kardashian has paid homage to the beloved, Academy-award winning actress: The E! star recreated Taylor’s Cleopatra look, and conducted the final interview with the Dame in the March 2011 issue of Harper’s Bazaar shortly before Taylor’s death at age 79.
Kardashian also paid $64,900 for a set of Lorraine Schwartz bangles once owned by Taylor in a Christie’s auction later that year. “Elizabeth Taylor was an idol of mine and I’m honored to now own something from her collection,” Kardashian told Us Weekly at the time. See more selfies of her here.
“The Lorraine Schwartz jade bracelets are special because jade transfers energy, so I will cherish these bracelets with her energy in them for the rest of my life!”
I’m so annoyed with the two of these people. I can’t even handle ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ because I can’t handle listening to ANY of them speak. They drive me crazy. Who’s going to tune into Kim and Kanye’s engagement episode??
