These Katharine Hepburn Wardrobe items are located at The Connecticut Historical Society and are beautiful. They are the work of “Valentina” who designed for many of the stars of old Hollywood including Greta Garbo. Katharine Hepburn was tiny, the jacket is about a size 2. The trousers about a size 2 or 4. Though Hepburn was about 5’7″ she had very long legs.
The CHS is continuously gathering information about this wardrobe collection so if you can help them out with any photos that would indicate where Ms. Hepburn may have worn this outfit please comment.
Hepburn being such a style icon, fashionistas are still raving about her today, for instance go to www.fashionmefabulous.blogspot.com
See you at “The Kate.”
