There's no doubt the party spirit still burns in Elizabeth Taylor. But at 76, the body sometimes can't keep up.

So it was no surprise when she took the opportunity to rest her eyes at a celebration to mark the legalisation of gay marriage in California.

Not that it stopped her cutting a dash at the glittering Hollywood event.

Elizabeth Taylor, cluthing her dog, attends a Hollywood party celebrating the legislation of gay marriage in California.

A hot pink kaftan worn with a truly dazzling diamond and ruby necklace and matching chandelier earrings made sure she stood out from the crowd.

The frail actress, who clutched a small white dog as she was pushed to her car in her wheelchair, still had the star quality to engage her legions of admirers with a supercharged smile.

Miss Taylor has long had a devoted gay fanbase which she rarely lets down. In April she wore £1.5million of diamonds, including a tiara, to attend a gay nightclub in Beverly Hills.

Given her many health problems, it is remarkable she gets out as much as she does.

She suffers from diabetes and congestive heart failure - where the heart is too weak to pump blood around the body - has had both hips replaced and had a benign brain tumour removed in 1997.

Miss Taylor, who was made an honorary dame by the Queen in 2000, has also survived viral pneumonia and is confined to a wheelchair because of osteoporosis.

Despite the setbacks, she is said to have fought hard in recent years to regain her health, with some observers even suggesting she has hopes of a film comeback.

My love affair with jewelry - by Elizabeth Taylor

My Love Affair with Jewelry - By Elizabeth Taylor

Abstract taken with full courtesy from - My Love Affair with Jewelry book
I have felt that ever since Richard started giving me jewelry, there was some meaning in it for him, too. He would do it with such a twinkle and with such glee. He would say I know I could give a $10 ornament for your hair or a $10,000 Van Cleef & Arpels necklace to wear around your neck and in your eyes I would see the same appreciation. I just love to watch your response and thats why I love giving you jewelry.
