This piece captures the record-breaking American actress Katharine Hepburn. With four Academy Awards to her name, the notoriously private star distanced herself from the celebrity lifestyle and broke the rules of female fashion standards by wearing trousers.

Stuart says: “She was known for being so strong-willed that she was often hard to direct in films. Perhaps this explains why this piece was such a challenge for me to complete: she was resisting me posing and contriving her every step of the way!”
