Modern Woman

"It is the plain women who know about love. The beautiful women are too busy being fascinating." - Katharine Hepburn

Today’s woman is a multitasker. She’s sexy, commands respect, and is becoming even more exquisite. Likewise, St. John and Stuart Weitzman — creators of classic women’s fashion for more than 50 years — design on the edge of contemporary with the latest tight knits, knee-high leather boots, and dusky color pops.
