Now & Then: Katharine Hepburn

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

If Katharine Hepburn were still alive, she'd be wearing Nanette Lepore's Spring 2011 Collection.


Katharine Hepburn is probably my favorite movie star of her time. Growing up I loved watching her old movies- she exuded such spunk and smarts. Fun fact about Katharine Hepburn: she holds the record for the most best actress nominations at the Academy Awards- winning four Oscars out of twelve nominations. Katharine's signature pieces seemed to be high wasted bottoms and collard blouses. She also consistently wore pants decades before it ever became fashionable for women to do so, much to the annoyance of the movie studios. Nanette Lepore's Spring 2011 Collection suits Katharine well- taking many classic styles common in the 30's and 40's and giving them new life and a modern edge. To see the rest of the "Now and Then" Gang go here and if you have a suggestion about someone you'd like to see featured please leave a comment! Oh, and please look at Miss Hepburn's shoes in the old black and white photo- amazing.
