Lauren Bacall: 1924-2014

"And death shall have no dominion.
No more may gulls cry at their ears
Or waves break loud on the seashores;
Where blew a flower may a flower no more
Lift its head to the blows of the rain;
Though they be mad and dead as nails,
Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;
Break in the sun till the sun breaks down,
And death shall have no dominion. "

~Dylan Thomas

The classy, beautiful Lauren Bacall has joined the ranks of the Pantheon. Her impeccable style and acting, her husky voice, her arched brows, her inspiring and defining romance with Bogie ( her less celebrated marriage to Jason Robarts Jr. isn't less fruitful) have etched themselves in our minds.
Her favorite fragrances, L'Ombre Dans L'Eau and Opôné  (Diptyque) and Paco Rabanne's Calandre shall remind Slim to us. She had great taste. A life lived to the fullest.

  1. Although its was a "bit of fluff" .... I loved her in "How To Marry A Millionaire" .... the costumes were wonderful in that movie too.

    So glad to see what sort of perfumes she loved Helg :)

  3. M,

    I thought you'd might all enjoy a bit of frag mention ;-)
    She did have a great physique for clothes, everything looked good on her! The movie did have lovely costumes, classy but glamorous!

  4. Ellen,

    indeed!

    It as a shame she had been left alone so soon and she had a marriage ending in divorce with Robarts (due to his alcoholism).

  6. R,

    I think a little creative makeup goes a long way into making brows look imposing and gorgeous.
    Yeah, she had good taste. RIP
