Official book description:

Glamorous when she wanted to be and tomboyish when she didn't. Katharine Hepburn developed her personal style and public image as a style rebel. Whether on stage, on screen, or in private life. Hepburn had a firm grasp on the power of her appearance. Rather than submit to studio image makers, she controlled her image and drew on her own proclivities to create a distinct antifashion persona. This book presents the famously headstrong star in a new light: as a style icon. Through images of Hepburn's on-screen and off-screen wardrobes and essays by top fashion historians, this book reveals how modern Hepburn's insouciance and idiosyncratic manner of dressing really was and shows her as an inspirational, self-styled counterpoint to the over-managed looks of celebrities today. Full of never-before-published images of Hepburn's costumes and personal wardrobe. Katharine Hepburn is a refreshing look at a true fashion original.

Publishing behemoth Random House is the largest English language publisher in the world, with books of all kinds including the best in fiction, nonfiction and children’s literature. Random House first made international news by successfully defending in court the U.S. publication of James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, setting a major legal precedent for freedom of speech. Beginning in the 1930s, the company moved into publishing for children, and over the years has become a leader in the field. Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the highly successful American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by the equally successful unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language. It continues to publish numerous reference works, including the Random House Webster's College Dictionary.
