Inspiration Board: Lauren Bacall

I was perusing a lifestyle blog yesterday and the subject of Lauren Bacall as a fashion icon came up. I’d heard the actress’ name thrown around with other style icons, like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, but I didn’t have a specific picture in my mind of Bacall. Off to our trusty photo agency, I went. While there were many photos of Bacall with husband Humphrey Bogart recording the program “Lux Radio Theatre” and attending industry events, I found the above photo most compelling. Bacall’s wry smile has just the right amount of cockiness to it. And she stands out from the background with a simple and chic pants outfit. Her smile would take practice to duplicate, but achieving a similar outfit only takes a few clicks of the mouse. Find out how to get this versatile look after the jump.
