You are in for a treat! In the main gallery, a large screen plays a clip of the l968 CBS special, Bacall and the Boys: which was filmed in Paris to showcase the fall collections from Pierre Cardin, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan and Emanuel Ungaro.
Look for the Norman Norell pink wool coat with jumbo pink rhinestone buttons that Bacall wore in the 1964 film, "Sex and the Single Girl," and the the packable, technical Cardine dress, designed by Pierre Cardin, which women can carry in a paper bag.
An astounding 740 items from the late actress's personal belongings will be auctioned by Bonhams on March 31 and April 1 as "The Lauren Bacall collection," in their New York Madison Avenue galleries. So now anyone with thousands of bucks to spare can own treasures from Bacall's jewelry, fine art and object d'art collection, but do not expect to find any of the actress's clothing up for bidding...you will find many of them featured in the "The Look," exhibition.
Ta Ta Darlings...I'm off to see the collection again this Wednesday for another tour of the galleries. Fan mail welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do check Polly's Blogs on www.pollytalk.com.
