The fashion stars of Instagram might be a modern girl’s go-to for regular outfit ideas, but Elizabeth Taylor has been providing style inspiration for decades.

We’ve always known the glamorous actress had impeccable style, and a recent deep dive into archival photos prove Taylor’s outfits can be an excellent blueprint for women who favor more-is-more dressing. She fearlessly favored plunging necklines and off-the-shoulder straps, effortlessly switched between rich velvet dresses and perky A-line styles, regularly flashed glitzy diamond jewelry, and dramatically swathed herself in full-length coats during winter.

Toward the end of her life, the actress continued her red carpet reign at philanthropic events in a wheelchair, dressed in bright caftans and heavy jewelry. She also received the CFDA’s Lifetime of Glamour Award in 1997, so when it comes to dressing for the holidays—whether it’s a Christmas party or simply traveling stylishly—she’s the ultimate source of inspiration. Ahead, we plucked 30 next-level photos from the archives, each showcasing Taylor in one of her many memorable outfits.
