Actress and style icon Lauren Bacall died Tuesday age 89. Bacall, one of the most glamorous women of the 20th century, was a model (discovered at age 17 by the also legendary Diana Vreeland) and stage actress before breaking into film with a stunning debut at 19  in "To Have and Have Not" in 1944. Not long after, she famously married co-star Humphrey Bogart. [Los Angeles Times]
