Something about Cooking Together

I’m back at it again with another blogathon. This time, it’s one which celebrates all things Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. The blogathon is hosted by In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood and it is taking place over the weekend of the 11th-13th. My contribution, however, is specifically looking at Katharine Hepburn and her fashionable looks on and off screen.

My interest in Katharine Hepburn’s costume choices in films and fashion in general came about during the writing of my dissertation. I was looking for another case study to contrast with my first which was Vivien Leigh. My advisor suggested Katharine Hepburn, as she is someone who is seen as the complete opposite of Leigh’s lady-like grace and glamour.
