The first book to celebrate the irreverent and original style of Katharine Hepburn -- icon of stage and screen. Glamorous when she wanted to be and tomboyish when she didnç°¡ Katharine Hepburn developed her personal style and public image as a style rebel. Whether on stage, on screen, or in private life, Hepburn had a firm grasp on the power of her appearance. Rather than submit to studio image makers, she controlled her image and drew on her own proclivities to create a distinct antifashion persona. This book presents the famously headstrong star in a new light: as a style icon. Through images of Hepburnå°_s on-screen and off-screen wardrobes and essays by top fashion historians, this book reveals how modern Hepburnå°_s insouciance and idiosyncratic manner of dressing really was and shows her as an inspirational, self-styled counterpoint to the over-managed looks of celebrities today. Full of never-before-published images of Hepburnå°_s costumes and personal wardrobe, Katharine Hepburn is a refreshing look at a true fashion original.
