Isn’t the resemblance striking? Linda has such an extraordinary face expressiveness and the ability to metamorphose from one editorial to another, more than any other model. I’ve recently found this photoshoot and loved it so much. She has managed to encapsulate Katharine Hepburn’s uniqueness. Katharine was too sophisticated to be to everyone’s taste, but it was her non-conformity that eventually made her a pioneer of style, one of the women who made fashion.
