The Icon: Lauren Bacall in The Big Sleep

They don't make screen icons like they used to.

Who is considered a modern-day iconic actress? What defines a stylish screen icon?

It's difficult to say for certain, but what can be said is that none will ever compare to the legendary Lauren Bacall (1924-2014). This beautiful, talented and outrageously witty woman defined what it was to be a femme fatale in film noir in the 1940s.

Her portrayal of Vivian, alongside her first husband Humphrey Bogart, in The Big Sleep (1946) was not only wickedly entertaining, but also incredibly stylish.

Bacall's influence will continue to make an impact for many decades to come.
