Clothes don’t make the woman when the woman is actress Katharine Hepburn. Questioned once about her preference for comfortable rather than fashionable clothes, she replied, “I don’t give a damn how I dress. I never have.” But she can wear clothes well. They even seem to gain in elegance when she dons them. At left, miss Hepburn clowns a bit during a break in shooting for ‘Love among the Ruins’, an ABC-drama to be shown March 6.
