Tig Talk with Elizabeth Hurley

The Tig Archives 02 / 06 / 2015

I can’t begin to tell you about my girl crush on Elizabeth Hurley. Well…yes, I can, and I really really want to. So indulge me for a moment. Maybe it started with that Versace safety pin dress, as it did for the rest of the world. Perhaps it was her inherent class and grace, or the dresses in the 90s with the high slit, low neck and oh-so virtuous teeny diamond cross around her neck. I wish I could lie and tell you that my 17 year old self didn’t try to replicate this look for high school prom, but my, oh my, would the photos prove me wrong. I have always loved everything about Liz Hurley, and when I realized she was going to be debuting on a new show, The Royals, (the first original scripted program for E! under the NBC Universal umbrella with USA network), I had to reach out to her. I had an in!

And as though I thought I was smitten before, not only did she get back to me – she did so quickly and graciously, whilst also giving some of the cheekiest and most honest answers I’ve had. (And yes, I just typed “whilst” – it just felt right for this post

If you thought I had a girl crush before…just wait til you read this. Thanks Liz – for Tig talking with me, and for making me aspire to act like a lady and feel like a woman.
