Reel Librarian Style: Bunny Watson in Desk Set

I love fashion, movies, and librarians — what better way to combine these loves than by taking a closer look at stylish reel librarians? And with Desk Set being one of my favorite librarian films of all time and featuring to-covet cinematic style, it seemed like a great place to start. I love it when a plan comes together! 🙂

First up, Katharine Hepburn’s portrayal of Bunny Watson — one of the most stylish reel librarians EVER. She’s a total pro and classy in every sense, including her sense of style.

Let’s take a closer look:

Bunny Watson’s cinematic wardrobe focuses on simple, classic shapes with interesting necklines. Her penchant for dark, striking colors — grey, black, and red — suit her no-nonsense outlook and befit her status as head librarian. Her femininity comes through in the details:  pearl studs (classic and appropriate in all scenarios), high heels, different textures, and flattering silhouettes.

Next time I’ll showcase more fashionable inspiration from the rest of the Desk Set ladies.

Can’t get enough? There are more fabulous reel to real examples of Desk Set style, found online here, here and here. Enjoy!
