See some of the fabulous designer clothes owned and worn by Hollywood and Broadway legend Lauren Bacall at a FREE exhibit. Bronx-born Bacall donated 700 pieces by fashion icons including Yves St. Laurent, Ungaro, Christian Dior, Pierre Cardin, and Norman Norell to the Museum at FIT before her death last year.
“Lauren Bacall: The Look,” includes dresses and evening gowns she wore in acting roles, as well as from her personal life, along with clips of some of her most famous films, including with husband Humphrey Bogart.
Bacall was an admitted clotheshorse, not surprising since she was a fashion model before she became a Hollywood and Broadway legend. She was also a friend of many of the designers whose clothing she wore, and bits of a TV special she hosted about the top French fashion designers also is on display.
