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.
