Enduring Style: Katharine Hepburn


When it comes to 'working the shirt'
I don't think anyone could do it
better than Katharine Hepburn.

She holds a special place in my memory book.
My father adored her, we used to love watching
her films over the holidays. She was a 'Bryn Mawr' girl, 
something he always hoped for me. 

My path went in a different direction
but my fascination with 'Kate' has never faded.

She had 'gumption' and style and I loved that about her.

  7. If the figure-fairy ever landed on my shoulder, Kate Hepburn's is the one I would have wished for. Those legs!! To look that good in a simple white shirt! Wonderful!

    The Songwriter and I watched Holiday for the umpteenth time just the other night. Goodness, she was gorgeous. Even with Cary Grant sharing the scene!
