She had success on the big screen, but she also struggled with depression and addiction. She was only 47 when she died.

Garland’s daughters – Liza Minnelli, 76, and Lorna Luft, 69 – have reportedly launched a fragrance in honor of her 100th birthday. Minnelli and Luft say the fragrance was based on what their mother would have worn herself.
