Lauren Bacall’s Gift To High Fashion – La Times

14 Aug

Pictured in front of a Red Cross office, wearing a black suit and clutching a fire-engine-red handbag, she was held out as an example of how the war was being fought at home. Bacall described the cover as, “the twist of fate that changed my life forever.” 0 The socialite Slim Hawks, director Howard Hawks’ wife (who later became better known as Slim Keith), noticed the cover, and suggested her husband use Bacall in a film. The rest is Hollywood history. Bacall never forgot her debt to fashion. In 1968, she even filmed a TV documentary on the subject, titled “The Paris Collections,” interviewing Saint Laurent, Pierre Cardin, Marc Bohan and others. Anderson’s costumes for Bacall in her first film, “To Have and Have Not” (1944) included a superbly fitted houndstooth peplum suit that Saint Laurent is said to have loved. The liquid-silk dress in that film, a wrap style with strong shoulders, is another classic that looks very ’70s Saint Laurent.

In 32 games since July 4, he’s batting .333 with 15 home runs and 37 RBIs, both MLB bests. Houston has lost five straight road games and 17 or 23 away from Minute Maid Park, which is good news for Boston’s Allen Webster (2-1, 4.91 ERA) as he prepares to take on Scott Feldman (6-8, 4.14). Webster’s third start since entering the rotation at the end of July was definitely his best, mostly because his control issues became a bit more manageable on his way to a second win. The right-hander allowed two runs and four hits while walking two and hitting two batters in 6 2-3 innings of Friday’s 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels . Webster had walked 11 over eight innings in his first two starts after being recalled.

As the photo suggests, this is the future of fashion.
