Classic Fashion Corner: Katherine Hepburn

Kate the Great
Grace Kelly may be my style icon but Katherine Hepburn is my spirit animal.

Fast facts about Katherine Hepburn:

  • She won an Oscar for Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, a film that depicted a positive depiction of an interracial marriage, which was illegal in 17 states at the time.
  • A nice girl from a good liberal family: Hepburn’s father, Dr. Thomas Norval Hepburn, was a urologist who sought to educate the public about the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.
  • As opposite from the Kardashians as you can get: Hepburn refused to play the traditional offscreen role of the Hollywood starlet, she wore little to no makeup and avoided media attention.
  • Hepburn developed a progressive neurological disease, but still managed to keep up an active lifestyle in her Connecticut hometown and even act in select roles.
