Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen, at the Appleton Museum of Art in Ocala, comes directly from Kent State University Museum and is the star’s personal collection of costumes from her six-decade career. Among the garments on display are the actress’ beloved trousers, worn by a handful of half mannequins lying in repose, sitting with legs crossed and even upside down with legs spread wide—a play off one of the actress’ publicity shots depicting the athletic young star in a headstand. “She found a style she liked and she had it made again and again and again,” explained Jean Druesedow, Director of the Kent State University Museum.
