A Look Back At Lauren Bacall's Most Glamorous Moments

We will forever remember Lauren Bacall as one of Hollywood's most glamorous actresses. With her sexy bedroom eyes, perfectly coiffed waves and bright red lips, she commanded the silver screen in 1940s films like "To Have and Have Not" and "The Big Sleep."

The confidence that Bacall exuded on camera seemed to come natural after she got her first touch of fame posing for the March 1943 cover of Harper's Bazaar. But we'd also like to imagine that starring alongside her first husband Humphrey Bogart eventually made it easier, as she once said that lowering her chin and gazing into his eyes is how she perfected "The Look."

However she credited her certitude, she matched it with superior style that will continue to draw fans for decades to come. Here are 19 moments that exemplify Lauren Bacall's timeless elegance:
