The book contains several essays on Hepburn and her style - from the costumes she wore on stage or screen to her personal wardrobe. The essays also provide information on the various designers Hepburn worked with and background information on them. However, the highlight of the book are the numerous photographs, both black & white and color, of Hepburn and some of her amazing wardrobe pieces. Many of these photographs have not been published previously. The book also shows several of the costumes that are part of the exhibit at the Kent State Fashion Museum as well as a photo of Hepburn wearing the same costume on the screen or on stage. Having seen the exhibit at Kent State, this book is an excellent addition to that exhibit and a nice tribute to Hepburn and her style. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847838919, Hardcover)

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 didn’t, 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 Hepburn’s on-screen and off-screen wardrobes and essays by top fashion historians, this book reveals how modern Hepburn’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 Hepburn’s costumes and personal wardrobe, Katharine Hepburn is a refreshing look at a true fashion original.
