The actress sported preppy separates as a young co-ed in love the all-American classic, "Love Story", but in real life, she personified boho chic. 
A little bit bohemian, and a little bit rock 'n' roll, Kate's look (even on the red carpet) is always effortless.

In the wake of Robin Williams's tragic passing, Hollywood has lost another legend. Iconic screen siren and stage actress Lauren Bacall passed away yesterday, August 13, 2014, at the age of 89. The sultry star had a storied career, and was often paired in movies with husband Humphrey Bogart, who passed away in 1957.

Born in New York City as Betty Joan Perske, Bacall got her start as a model. A Harper's Bazaar cover led to a screen test for To Have and Have Not, where she met and fell in love with Bogart. The rest was history, and Bacall skyrocketed to fame, working in films, TV, and on stage for the duration of her life. She received Tony Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960, and an honorary Oscar for her body of work in 2009. Her signature raspy voice became her calling card. Her absence in Hollywood will be widely felt.
