Kate Winslet Poses as Elizabeth Taylor on V Magazine

Kate Winslet just recently played Joan Crawford – well, if you want to be technical about it, she played the title role in Todd Haynes' Mildred Pierce, a remake of Michael Curtiz's 1945 noirish melodrama starring Joan Crawford. Now, with the assistance of thick black eyebrows, Academy Award winner Kate Winslet (The Reader) plays two-time Academy Award winner Elizabeth Taylor (Butterfield 8, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) in the latest issue of V magazine.

Winslet may look sort of drag-queenish in the above photo, but so did Taylor after starring in the mammoth Cleopatra – what with on-screen roles in overblown fare such as The Sandpiper and Boom!, and off-screen roles as Richard Burton's (two-time) wife and the bearer of iceberg-sized diamonds.

And speaking of diamonds … Taylor's jewelry, valued at $30 million, will be auctioned at Christie's in New York on December 13-14. In her 2002 memoir My Love Affair with Jewelry, Taylor wrote, “I never, never thought of my jewelry as trophies … When I die and they go off to auction I hope whoever buys them gives them a really good home.”
