Elizabeth Taylor struck a glamorous pose in a blouse with a polka dot yoke in 1944, the same year she appeared in the award-winning movie National Velvet. Although the polka dots, ruffles, and tie at the high-necked blouse all suggest her youth (she was 12 years old at the time), the petite actress with the bewitching violet eyes already looks like the glamorous mature woman she became, who later starred in many movies, winning two Oscars during her film career.
