Style Icon: Katherine Ross

August 28, 2012

 Born January 29, 1940 Katherine Ross is an American stage and film actress, and published children's Author. Most famously she appeared in The Graduate (1967) for which she won a Golden Globe and Oscar Nomination; However, she also appeared in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), The Stepford Wives (1975), and Donnie Darko (2001) among others. Ross is most certainly an ambassador for Ivy League style - her thick blanket of dark hair frames her face in a way that makes it the focal point of every portrait. Her large glassy eyes give the impression of youthful naïveté. With her simple ensembles she provides the perfect pallet for her strong and beautiful features; in her prime, she read as the quintessential American girl - sophisticated, intelligent, beautiful, but ultimately still vulnerable. Here are a collection of photos of Katharine spanning from her mid twenties to early forties.
