Throwback Thursday: Katharine Hepburn’s Wide Leg Trousers

In an 1981 interview with Barbara Walters, an elderly but still fiercely independent Katharine Hepburn explained (for what must have felt like the millionth time) her choice to live a life free of matrimony and motherhood. Although Katharine Hepburn was indisputably one of the great beauties of Hollywood’s Golden Age, she raised eyebrows by wearing only pants and never holding her tongue. “I have not lived as a woman. I have lived as a man,” Hepburn said “I’ve just done what I damn well wanted to and I made enough money to support myself. And I ain’t afraid of being alone.” “Is that why also you wear pants?” asked an intrepid young Walters. “No, I wear pants because they’re comfortable.” Walters, apparently unsatisfied by Hepburn’s explanation, pushed on: Today it’s easy to forget that less than 100 years ago women who wore pants were considered daring and more than a little scandalous. For a beautiful starlet like Katharine Hepburn to refuse feminine dresses for manly trousers was utterly baffling to the American public. To be blunt, Katharine got a lot of shit for doing things her own way. Fortunately she never gave a damn. Katherine’s then-ridiculed outfit choices paved the way for modern women to wear we please and go about our lives in the relative comfort and freedom of pants.

Katherine’s uniform of wide-legged trousers were not only practical but wonderfully flattering on Hepburn’s long, lean, and athletic frame. Tall girls around the world can look to Katherine as an accidental fashion trailblazer who dressed for the body she had, regardless of current fads. Katharine Hepburn’s style has never been more relevant to fashionistas of modern-day. Wide legged trousers (once dismissed as manly and unstylish) are one of Spring 2014’s biggest runway trends. Androgynous womenswear has never been more popular amongst designers, models, celebrities, and stylish women on the street.

So next time you slip into a pair of wide legged trousers, take a moment to think of Katharine Hepburn, a woman who enjoyed great beauty but never let it define her, who lived, loved, and dressed only for herself, and an icon who adored a damn good pair of pants. Hepburn4

We were so excited to host the location for the kick-off party for the Lucky-FABB event, with luxury hair care brand, Aloxxi and Lucky Magazine. Guests were treated to complimentary hair styling courtesy of Aloxxi stylists and delicious bites from Fat Cow (located here at The Grove). Our stylehaüs team dressed our mannequins to match each Aloxxi “hair color personality” with some of our favorite spring pieces! From the “fiery redhead” to the “blonde bombshell” and the “brunette beauty”, each outfit was made to fit each hair color personality to a tee! It was great to meet some new fashion and beauty bloggers and of course, see some of our favorite familiar faces as well! This was the perfect event to kick off the Lucky-FABB conference and we were so happy to be invited to be a part of it!

It is quite obvious that this checker pattern has taken over almost every fashion magazine this month. This bold print feels fresh, yet still has a mod feel which keeps it retro and quirky. These models and celebrities look amazing donning this statement print and the styling is spot on! If you love this pattern but would rather not wear this look head-to-toe and risk looking like a checker board, opt for an accessory that has the fun print on it instead. Rock black and white checkers on the front of a bag or a sneaker with the bold print. You will still have that hint of mod meets modern in your outfit without feeling too consumed by the pattern.

PFW Lanvin F/W’13

From ruffles to flower appliqués, silk, chiffon and luscious fur, this collection completely evoked an old-Hollywood star meets 50s housewife. Lanvin never ceases to impress us and is one of our favorite designers of all time, especially since their clothing is not only the epitome of class, but Lanvin still manages to bring in a playful spirit. For their fall 2013 collection, models were decked out in statement jewelry, with “Help” and “Love” necklaces draped over silk dresses, oversized knit sweaters and chiffon blouses. Most of the pieces were black, grey and champagne, but there were pops of cherry red throughout the collection which gave the overall vibe an element of surprise and seduction. The silhouettes were classic and made you feel as if you had traveled back in time to another era. We also loved the styling of the runway, models had sleek chignon buns with a side part, black silk gloves and tights.

We were blown away by the Balmain collection presented at Paris Fashion Week earlier today. The brand stayed true to their incredible detail in the clothing and love for creative and luxurious pieces. This collection was a mix of futuristic items combined with elements of Indian and eastern influences. The jewel tone colors of the deep emeralds, sapphire blues, ruby reds, plum purples and vibrant magenta’s are colors you would find in the crown jewels or a spice market. The execution was impeccable, and the styling of the hair and makeup kept the overall look modern and easy. From the bold shoulders, to the harem pants, statement wrapped skirts and one shoulder tops, this collection took us to faraway places. Overall, bravo to this extravagant collection and wonderful combinations of futuristic edge meets magic carpet ride.
