Lauren Bacall: Official Fashion Legend

She's getting her own FIT museum exhibit


Lauren Bacall may have passed away last August, but her indelible impact on fashion is already being recognised. The Museum at FIT will honour Bacall with a new, month-long exhibit, WWD reports, entitled "Lauren Bacall: The Look."

The museum will fill its galleries with some of the 700+ items Bacall donated between 1968 and 1986. Among them will be the hot pink Norman Norell dress she wore in Sex and the Single Girl, a black silk Emanuel Ungaro pantsuit (a nod to her love of menswear), and one of her more risky choices, a silk Christian Dior gown adorned with ostrich feathers at the wrists and hemline.

But the exhibit will feature more than just clothes: Photos of Bacall, including some with the quartet of designers—Pierre Cardin, Yves Saint Laurent, Emanuel Ungaro, and Marc Bohan—whose clothes she wore so often, will line the walls. The wonderful tribute be on view from March 3 through April 4.
