Cinematically the Waist

Kate Hepburn
The Philadelphia Story, 1941
Gowns by Adrian
Arms by akimbo. Hepburn, Grant, Stewart. Three of the greatest screen actors ever together in one film, riffing off and falling over one another, expertly guided by the great George Cukor. Hepburn is perfection as Tracy Lord Haven, an impossibly thin and impossibly chic socialite who's beauty is surpassed only by her frigidity. Flawless. And for all you aspiring milliner, check out Ruth Hussey's hats. You'll gag.
