September 14 Fashion Parade *Get the look: Katharine Hepburn*

Winner of four Oscars (more than any other actor), Kate Hepburn was in 52 films and 33 plays in a career that spanned seven decades. She portrayed an independent and self-confident woman, capable of standing up to her male leads. Hepburn’s style, honesty and strength of character have influenced several generations of women to be more educated, more independent and more active.

Trousers (high-waisted and full-cut) were key to her personal style, and she was happiest in tennis shoes or loafers and sportswear. Button down shirts usually topped her trousers. She might sometimes wear a blazer, a menswear-style coat, sweater or jacket.





The 40s look is the hot look for Fall and Katherine's iconic look is easily introduced in a modern wardrobe to work the runway trend while keeping an eye to the past!
