Katherine Hepburn

Katherine Hepburn

The Aviator chronicles the career and downfall of Howard Hughes. For a brief period, he was dating Hollywood Starlet Katherine Hepburn (Cate Blanchett), who managed to ease the symptoms of his worsening obsessive-compulsive disorder. Still regarded as an important cultural icon and the epitome of the "modern woman" in the 20th century, Katherine Hepburn deviated from traditional gender roles by shunning marriage, dating younger men, playing sports, and wearing trousers before it was fashionable or acceptable to do so. The film takes place between the 1920's and the 1940's, but her fashion is comprised of over-sized menswear in bold colors and patterns.
