Jackie O.


Did anyone else watch The Kennedys? It's been a great series so far and all of the actors are doing a fantastic job. JFK was a great president, despite his many personal flaws. And Katie Holmes looks so much like the First Lady!


As I watch I can't help but lust after the clothing worn by Jackie. Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, better known as Jackie O. after her second marriage to Aristotle Onassis, was not only an amazingly strong woman but was also well known for incredible fashion sense.

Perfectly tailored, Chanel dresses, a string of pearls, and short wavy hair is how she was seen in her early days.


As she aged her signature look was still simple, chic but more patterns were introduced. Her big, over sized glasses are probably what she's best know for as far as fashion goes.


What do you prefer, Jackie's style as First Lady, or in her later years?

She is so fabulous it's insane. I think I prefer her earlier years, but she still looks amazing in the seventies.

I can't stand how incredible her style was! I wish I had the cojones to just dress like that every day, but instead I will just watch The Kennedys and Mad Men and dream!

I missed it! Hopefully it will show up on Netflix because I wanted to see Katie Holmes in this part. I prefer Jackie O's earlier style, I think -- a bit cleaner.

I haven't seen the entire mini series but have caught bits and pieces. I'm hoping it comes out on dvd so I can buy it. Katie Holmes does a fantastic job as Jackie. I like her style best during the White House days. xo

Meghan said...

I've always been such a huge fan of the Kennedys! I read as many biographies as possible in high school.

And Jackie is just perfection. I love her First Lady style!

I haven't been watching the series but Katie Holmes resemblance to Jackie O is uncanny. I do prefer her style in the early years, but oversized sunglasses are always a must.

Ohh! I do like her as first lady. She's looks so elegant and glamourous. Though she still looks great in the later years too.

Heather Pranitis said...

I think it is uncanny how much Katie looks like Jackie. And I am glad I received this post in my email this am! I like Jackie's style all-round however, her later years stand out to me. PS - I linked you up today.
