Style Icon: Lauren Bacall

 With the passing of Lauren Bacall, it feels like we no longer have any living ties to the golden age of Hollywood. She was a classic broad...beautiful, ballsy and coooool. You can tell this was a woman who wasn't flustered, at least not on screen. I'll miss her legendary seductive smoky voice and sense of humor. In tribute, I thought we'd take some cues from her sophisticated, classic style.

No jeans or T-shirts for this lady...casualwear meant a well-tailored jumpsuit and lace-up espadrilles.

 In her young modeling days, she could work a smolder like no other.

 All covered up, and yet completely sexy. And that hair! Perfection.

A simple white dress with extremely simple accessories looks angelic on her. A testament to the power of red lipstick.
