Screen Icon Lauren Bacall Passes Away


Lauren Bacall, one of the original Hollywoods, has passed away at the age of 89. Bacall embodied everything it meant to be a movie star, since the moment she burst on to our screens in 1944’s To Have and Have Not, right through to her performances in more supporting roles in present day. She was one half of one of the first power couples, marrying Humphrey Bogart, with whom she starred with in her most memorable roles (hard to believe she was only 19 in this clip and the pic above!!)

From humble beginnings as an usher at her local cinema, to appearing onscreen opposite some of the greatest stars in Hollywood, Bacall has done done everything there is to do in the industry, as well as being a pioneer in the fashion world, shaping the ideas of entrepreneurs like Yves Saint-Laurent (pictured with his arm around her below). Intelligent, sexy, confident and kind. Lauren Bacall leaves behind a legacy that will never be forgotten. RIP
