Purple reign! Liza Minnelli, 68, puts on an effortlessly glamorous display as she attends the LA Italia Film Festival

Purple reign: Liza Minnelli was a guest of honour at the LA Italia Film Festival closing night gala on Friday night
Her timeless beauty was emphasised by false lashes and pink lipstick while her locks were styled into her famous short crop.

 All smiles: Liza has recovered from a back surgery which she underwent late last year

Liza Minnelli was a guest of honour at the LA Italia Film Festival closing night gala on Friday night.
The actress looked every inch the theatrical icon that she is celebrated to be as she worked the red carpet at the Chinese 6 in Hollywood.
The 68-year-old sported a chic purple ensemble as she teamed a purple trousers with a matching top and shawl.
Last year saw Liza explain to New York Post columnist Cindy Adams that she injured herself 'picking up my dogs' and had to undergo surgery.
'I couldn’t go to Joan Rivers’ funeral, which I desperately wanted to because I loved her — but I couldn’t go because I can’t walk. I’m in bed. Going in for surgery,' the Oscar winner said. 

'I broke my lower back. Remember a few years ago I was in a wheelchair because I had trouble with my spine? They operated on it then. Well, now, again. They’ll have to fuse it.' 
The Broadway legend then elaborated as to the specifics of the incident.
'I was picking up my dogs — and they jumped. And I got twisted and fell. I thought it’s nothing. But it wasn’t nothing. It became something. After an X-ray, seems I busted it and have to have it fused. The operation’s next week.'

The Cabaret star has battled health issues for years and was even forced to cancel several concert dates last year for an undisclosed issue.
In the past she's also undergone two hip replacements, received a new knee and in 2000 recovered from viral encephalitis, a potentially deadly swelling of the brain.  
Liza, the daughter of legendary actress Judy Garland and film director Vincente Minnelli, shot to fame when she starred in the 1972 film version of the Broadway musical Cabaret, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress.
