Katherine Hepburn Exhibit.








Hello there everyone!
So when I visited Kent State last week, I also got to tour the Historical Fashion museum there, as well! It was so nifty, and it was even more exciting because they had a Katherine Hepburn exhibit showcasing he actual clothing she wore in real life and her movies! Her award gowns, movie costumes, signature trousers, and even her shoes and makeup kit! Also, did you all know she has an 18 inch waist? Gosh, SO tiny! It was really incredible and I feel totally honored to have been able to see such beautiful pieces (the pictures don't do any justice) that such a famous actress wore. Although I must admit that I haven't seen any Katherine Hepburn films (boo!), after seeing her movie wardrobes, I believe I'm going to have to definitely rent some of her movies over the summer from the library!

Hope you all are doing just wonderful!

With much love, Lauren.
P.S. I have so incredibly exciting and totally dreamy news to share with you all in a few days! Stay tuned...

I love Katherine Hepburn! She was absolutely hilarious in the film "Bringing Up Baby" with Cary Grant. {I adore him. ♥} Wow...18 inches for real?! My goodness!

I'm not sure quite why I know this, but apparently Katherine Hepburn had this weird phobia of dirty hair, and would go around on her movie sets and check people's hair to see if it was clean or not. Haha, yeah, I know, that was extremely random. :)

Oooo! Exciting and dreamy news! I can't wait to hear about it! :)

So jealous! She had such lovely clothes. Ya know when I stayed in San Diego last summer for the weekend I stayed in the old hollywood hotel where Clark Gable used to go and I stayed in Katherine's old suite!

Can't wait to hear the news and have a lovely memorial weekend :)
