The theatrics of funny lady Elaine Stritch weren't reserved for the Broadway stage. Known just as much for her booming voice as for her oversize shades, the iconic actress, who died Thursday at 89, gave us decades of brassy, over-the-top style to adore. Commanding our attention in everything from hot-pink suits to oversize ties — often paired with crisp white gloves, occasionally excluding a pair of pants — Elaine gave us plenty to smile about over the years, and we're looking back at some of our favorite moments here.
