Among the looks in this exploration of power dressing is this 1979 suit by Yves Saint Laurent, a gift to the museum from Lauren Bacall, who discussed in her 1985 autobiography, By Myself, how much she loved fashion. “From the day I could afford it, I’ve shopped too much,” she wrote. “As my mother used to say as she looked at my hundred pairs of shoes, ‘How can you ever wear them? You only have two feet!’” (Image courtesy of The Museum at FIT.)
