Profession: SenatorDetails: The couple, pictured here prior to their Virginia wedding, tied the knot before friends and family on Warner’s farm. Taylor wore fur and a turban to the ceremony. Taylor decided to semi-retire, settling down as a politician’s wife.
Husband #5: Richard Burton Year: 1964 Profession: Actor Details: True to the ‘60s, Taylor wore a floral wreath made with Roman hyacinths and Lily of the Valley flowers and a babydoll dress to her March wedding. The yellow chiffon dress was designed by Irene Sharaff, the costume designer who worked on Cleopatra. Taylor met the second great love of her life on set while filming Cleopatra. It was the most expensive movie of all time but their romance overshadowed the price tag.
Husband #4: Eddie Fisher Year: 1959 Profession: Singer Details: The destination was Vegas for Taylor and Fisher’s wedding at a local synagogue. Taylor took a fashion gamble choosing a green silk hooded dress for this occasion. “It was a typical two-rabbi Jewish ceremony,” Fisher wrote in his autobiography Been There, Done That. “As usual, Elizabeth was late for her own wedding.” In a much talked-about romance, Taylor married Fisher less than a year after Todd was killed.
