Elizabeth Hurley

Someone who has blossomed a little late in her career, Elizabeth Hurley is a name to reckon with. Born to an Irish father who was a Major in the British Army and a teacher mother, Elizabeth aspired to be a dancer as a young girl. Hurley started working as an actress in the late 1980s and became a model in 1995. The sensuous diva grabbed worldwide media attention when she appeared in a plunging black Versace dress held together with gold safety pins, while accompanying her then love interest Hugh Grant for the premiere of his film ‘Four Wedding and A Funeral’ in 1994.English model and actress, Elizabeth became to be known as a girlfriend of Hugh Grant in the 90s.A role in the first ‘Austin Powers’ flick in 1997 raised her profile in Hollywood as an actress, but Elizabeth is perhaps best known for her devil’s role in the film ‘Bedazzled’.Liz Hurley is also the face of Estée Lauder, a lucrative contract she picked up at the age of 28 with zero modelling experience.An astute businesswoman, the actress-model has also made a splash on the fashion scene with her eponymously named swimwear line, Elizabeth Hurley Beach.
