The Traveling Jumpsuit

Left: Olivia Wilde filming a movie in Katherine Hepburn style.  Right: Rebecca in a Hepburn-inspired jumpsuit from Francesca's.
Travel back in time ~ The iconic Hollywood star Katharine Hepburn didn't intend to change the face of American fashion; she just didn't like wearing skirts. Her fondness for trousers and refusal to wear what was then the norm for Hollywood stars of the 1930s and '40s changed the perception of how women should dress...  





While Hepburn was not averse to glamour, comfort was paramount. The wide-leg trousers and high waisted jumpsuits became Hepburn's fashion trademark.  The dance moves are all Rebecca.


No Hepburn-inspired ensemble is complete without a nod to the actress’s other trademark: a smoldering gaze...

A huge thank you to my gorgeous, future daughter in-law, Rebecca,  for letting me style her for this fun photo shoot!
