1. Great post! As for myself, I always thought Katharine alluring, but even my 16-year-old self thought Garbo was the greatest beauty on Earth. Yet, I think Kate is fascinating, not only for her looks, but for everything you listed.
    Thanks for the kind comment!

  2. I always thought that Katharine Hepburn was absolutely gorgeous. It’s not just her face but how she expresses herself. And let’s face it, she was in good shape. Pat and Mike is proof of that if nothing else.

    She wasn’t a “traditional” beauty, but then again, so many of the greats often aren’t. She always stayed true to herself and she didn’t care how other people thought she looked.

    But I would kill for those cheekbones.

    Enjoyed your post immensely! Here’s the one I did for The Great Katharine Hepburn Blogathon 🙂 https://knifeink.wordpress.com/2015/05/10/my-week-with-kate-and-spence/

  3. Very interesting to read this after watching ‘Mary of Scotland’, where she is definitely presented as a great beauty. I find it hard to disentangle thoughts about an actor’s looks from how I feel about them overall, voice, movements etc… and Hepburn is absolutely compelling to watch right through her career.

  4. Lovely post! You said exactly what I was trying to convey in my own post for Kate. Glad to see another participant for the blogathon!
