Socialite and reality TV star Kim Kardashian missed out on meeting her idol Elizabeth Taylor before the movie veteran died last month – because the actress was too ill to invite her to her home.
Kardashian was one of the last people to interview Taylor when the two women agreed to chat for a recent issue of Harper’s Bazaar – but plans for them to meet face to face fell flat as the movie icon fell sick.

The Keeping up With the Kardashians star says, “We had a tea set up for me to come over to her house and have tea and then she got sick and they postponed it… so I never got the chance to meet her.”

Instead, the interview for the publication was conducted via email – and Kardashian admits the experience will remain a highlight of her life for many years to come.

She adds, “I learned so much from her just from that interview that that was enough for me… I asked her to follow me on Twitter and she said, ‘Of course.'”

Generous Taylor also allowed the reality TV star to don some of her iconic movie costumes for a shoot accompanying the interview piece.

Kardashian explains, “I wore her original costumes from Cleopatra and it was honestly such an honor.”
