Elizabeth Taylor is an iconic actress that requires no introduction, well, anywhere. What you might not know is that she owned one particular, very special Rolls-Royce that was with her longer than any of her husbands. In 1960, Taylor had a one-off, custom 1961 Rolls-Royce Cloud II Convertible made–one of only 20 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II Dropheads with left-hand drive that were ever built–in the same shade of green as her wedding dress and delivered to The Pierre hotel on Fifth Avenue in New York City. After two decades of her ownership and four decades in the hands of the collector that’s currently selling it, the car affectionately known as the “Green Goddess” is heading to auction at the same site where it was originally delivered. The “Green Goddess” is expected to fetch between $1 million and $2 million when it rolls across the block on Tuesday.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
