This book is a "must have" for any Hepburn fan and for anyone interested in American sportswear and one of the women who made it acceptable for women to wear pants everywhere.
I get it now, and I adore her even more for it.
Rebel Chic by Jean Druesedow (with several contributors) is about Katharine Hepburn's "style" - a fashion term in this case, but it reveals so much more about her that I can finally see clearly in her acting performances. According to Rebel Chic, Hepburn had a very authentic style, it was her own, and she didn't care what everyone else was doing or whether or not they approved of it. Her trademark trousers and "preppy" look was way out of the norm for actresses (and all women) back in the early days of her career. Her simplicity of style and marked individualism revealed her personality. The real Kate - The woman who thrived on independence, comfort and both hard work and hard play. In Rebel Chic, it seems that she's the reason I can sit here in jeans today, as a woman, and be totally accepted anywhere I go. Through this book, I realize she played a big part in making that okay. It certainly wouldn't have been the case 80 years ago or so. The photographs are good too, and include some of her costars. But overall, this is a style book. In every photograph I can clearly see the fierce individualism in Kate that I had a hard time identifying before I read this book. It's inspiring. She's inspiring.
Katharine Hepburn was definitely before her time when it comes to style and Rebel Chic highlights all of the reasons why. It also lets us in on the personality that made it all happen. It's a wonderful book worth reading...and reading again.

I was a little disappointed that the binding was broken, but maybe that was in the ad.
I love the book and it is not an heirloom, just for my enjoyment.
After seeing the exhibit I had to have the book - and it didn't disappoint. Eve if you didn't get a chance to see the exhibit - this book is a must have for any Hepburn fan.Published 21 months ago by paperlady
