Remembering Lauren

Posted on

Here at Rokit we're all saddened by the news that screen legend and fashion supremo Lauren Bacall has passed away at the age of 89. As the epitome of the classic starlet, she began her career as a fashion model, before making her screen debut at the tender age of 19. Proving she was no young Hollywood car crash, her career spanned the decades, and Ms Bacall remained one stylish lady until the end. Before there was Brangelina, Bacall and her husband Humphrey Bogart were one seriously hot Hollywood couple in the 40s, making several onscreen appearances together. Despite the somewhat controversial age-gap (of 23 years) and the small issue of his already being married when they met, their own marriage lasted until his death in 1957 (who doesn't love a good romance?!).

Take a cue from the lady herself and channel your inner screen goddess; bias cut dresses in liquid silk, lace or taffeta makes for luxurious, high-octane glamour. Our classic vintage collection includes authentic pieces from the 40s and early 50s; all you need are the set curls, red lippy and that Bacall-inspired smoulder to make quite the debut.

So here's to you Ms. Lauren B; we salute your epic career and glamorous self. Seen one of her flicks? Name your favourite here or on our Facebook page!
