I read where she said her obituary would be all about Bogart. Her life was bigger than that - she lived most of it without him.
She was a big name in fashion - her patronage of YSL pretty much helped make his ready to wear the success it became, not to mention his couture. The celebrities in the audience during fashion week make great promotion - second only to wearing the stuff.
Bacall was a success in her own right - she worked all her life. The last film I saw was The Mirror Has Two Faces, playing Streisand's mother. She had style.
She was unusual for Hollywood and Madison Avenue because she knew who she was. She knew she was more than what she did for a living and the celebrity that followed.
