Lauren Bacall “The Look” Exhibit in NYC

You’ve probably watched a Lauren Bacall film sometime in your life. She passed last August. (obituary)

This exhibit’s over now but I’ll post what my sister and I saw at the Fashion Instititute of Technology while I visited on Spring Break.

We had a lot of fun looking at the fashions and reading the accompanying magazine pieces.

The first piece we saw is the coat

(Cell phone photo 🙁  the only one I took)

"A vivid pink wool coat by Norman Norell, worn by Bacall in the 1964 film Sex and the Single Girl, is on display."

  1. I really like this era of clothing and looks like a great exhibit and your cell phone video is of a jacket style that reminds me of Jackie Kennedy….
