She wore the pants. Literally! Neither Hepburn's physique -- tall, slender and boyish -- nor her attitude were in line with the bombshell look of the Hollywood age in which she reigned. She didn't fuss over her hair or makeup (in fact, she wore hardly a trace of it), and dressed with comfort in mind first and foremost. But that doesn't mean she didn't ooze glamour at every turn. Besides those aforementioned trousers -- wide-legged, high-waisted and precisely-pleated, please -- Hepburn's style signatures included simple, button-down blouses, sharply tailored blazers and polished loafers. Her borrowed-from-the-boys attitude exuded power and confidence and, most importantly, a less obvious brand of sex appeal.
Signature items: wide-legged pants, loafers, button-downs, sharp blazers.
