V Magazine's 'Heroes Issue' features actress Kate Winslet channelling screen legend and fashion icon Elizabeth Taylor, photographed by Mario Testino and styled by Carine Roitfeld. Think decadent scarves and turbans paired with frosting (jewellery) by Harry Winston, David Webb and Chanel. Winslet even compares herself to the late actress, saying: “There was a fearlessness in her. Which in old Hollywood perhaps didn’t feel quite as prevalent. Now, actors and actresses can bend the rules a lot. Back then, there did seem to be a rule book, and there was some expectation in terms of how glamorous women should look. There’s a sort of coolness and aloofness to the way [Elizabeth Taylor] would look in posed photographs. In candid snapshots she was really quite soft, and she would really screw up her face. I do that as well.”
