'...our host stood grinning, flanked by his sons, and with Elizabeth Taylor seated by his side.
"Wait till you see how fat she's grown!" people had warned me.
To me she didn't look fat; she looked solid and luscious.'
Paul Bowles, Days: Tangier Journal, August 20, 1989

This photo of Liz in the pool is not connected with Paul Bowles' mention of seeing her in Tangier, but it's my favorite portrait...and I'd say "solid and luscious" is about right.

You've said it all, vihrmin, and in few words.

I think her performance in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" alone was sufficient to secure her reputation.
