"You are my idol... but I'm six husbands and some big jewels behind," Kim Kardashian once told Elizabeth Taylor. This was back in 2011, prior to Taylor's death, and since then she's divorced second husband Kris Humphries, had a whirlwind romance with Kanye West, and is now a bride-to-be. As far as power couples go, her relationship with West is parallel to Taylor's over-the-top courtship with Richard Burton.
Just as Taylor and Burton did back in the day, Kardashian and West like to make a scene with flashy get-ups and no shortage of PDA. West and Burton both boast a reputation for spoiling their ladies with lavish gifts.
