Who is your style icon? Katherine Hepburn

What is your overall impression of how people dress in general? Without a sense of personal expression…and a poor sense of proportion.
And what do you recommend that they do otherwise? Be yourself—say something with how you dress. And, if you can’t do that, don’t let your clothes wear you…be aware of your own shape and how to carry something off, original or not.
