'Fashion rebel' Katharine Hepburn celebrated

An exhibition in New York is celebrating the iconic fashion of Hollywood star Katharine Hepburn.

Her fondness for trousers and refusal to wear what was then the norm for Hollywood stars of the 1930s and '40s changed the perception of how women should dress.

But Hepburn was not averse to glamour and worked closely with designers to create the perfect look.

Barbara Plett reports.
