Legends about Katharine Hepburn are composed even today, though this Hollywood icon is not with us for already 13 years.
Last intellectual of Hollywood, who introduced the fashion of deliberately negligent male suits, naturalness and natural make-up. At the same time, Katharine managed to look seductive and desirable, even without using tricks and secrets known to many women.
Her name is the personification of the concept of classical Hollywood luxury. Katharine Hepburn was different: a rebel and an intellectual, seductress and a woman walking towards her goal in spite of any obstacles.
Star Katharine Hepburn came up just at the moment when American cinema fell in love with busty blondes – simple girls in cute dresses. She and her aristocratic beauty, abrupt manner and a free view of the conventions became popular in spite of conventional beauty trends.
Katharine did not consider herself as beautiful and refused to play the role of a Hollywood star.
Katherine Hepburn had other concerns, in addition to maintaining the perfect make-up and wearing the right dress. Such women do not follow the fashion – they create it.
For all her life Katharine was involved in sports. In her youth, she won the championship of the state of Missouri in tennis. She had been training every day throughout life. Even being 70-year-old, she had a morning jog.
Immediately after waking Katherine played tennis or did swimming for an hour. She did not deny herself the pleasure to swim in the ocean, even when the water was so cold that the lips almost instantly got frozen.
The second element of a healthy lifestyle for Katherine was daily pouring with ice water. This habit started in her parents’ house. Cold water strengthens the immune system, and indeed, even the ubiquitous Hollywood paparazzi never filmed Catherine being sick.
Katharine Hepburn loved chocolate, especially dark with almonds, but she had a tiny waist. How?
She indulged in a little pleasure, because a person misses the pleasure she loses the joy of life. Her diet was based on the principles of a healthy diet. So, Katharine despised abundant dining and always confined to vegetable dishes from five different vegetables. We also know that she drank a lot of water, but she had never tried to sit after dinner and didn’t eat so much to make her stomach stretch.
