In 1981 Barbara Walters asked Katharine Hepburn—who was known for donning trousers—if she ever wore skirts. Ms. Hepburn replied that she did own one skirt, which she would wear to Walters’s funeral. The sassy star’s appearance is the subject of this exhibit, which focuses on the iconic actor's style, both onscreen and off: The collection includes pieces that she wore onstage and in movies, from such designers as Valentina, Cecil Beaton and Muriel King. The show will also feature film stills, posters and other memorabilia.
