Style: Katherine Hepburn, the icon of the week

Last week we spoke about Audrey Hepburn and today we'd like to talk about another lady with the same surname, Katherine Hepburn.

She was an American actress of film, stage, and television. Known for her headstrong independence and spirited personality, Hepburn was a leading lady in Hollywood for more than 60 years. She appeared in a range of genres, from screwball comedy to literary drama, and received four Academy Awards for Best Actress—a record for any performer. In 1999, Hepburn was named by the American Film Institute as the greatest female star in Hollywood history. 

While Audrey Hepburn was a very feminine woman, Katherine Hepburn had a more classical and masculine style, that suited her perfectly. 

We do like women with a masculine style. They don't just look different but they also show their strong character by feeling comfortable and beautiful in looks usually appropiate for men. The famous dinner jacket of Yves Saint Laurent was one of the first steps made in fashion to encourage women to start wearing clothes that would no longer be just for men. Nowadays, thanks to women with a lot of style like Katherine Hepburn, young and old ladies have the personality to wear the garçon style.

Following Katherine Hepburn's style....

...we recommend the following products to look like her: this De Tommaso Oxford style shoe...

...and the Blenheim belt from Hardy&Parsons
