The Jackie O -Dress
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was truly in a league of her own. American socialite, writer, photographer, and book editor who served as first lady of the United States from 1961 to 1963, "Jackie O" became a global fashion icon during her husband's presidency. After the 1960 election, she commissioned French-born American fashion designer and Kennedy family friend Oleg Cassini to create an original wardrobe for her appearances as First Lady.
Kennedy preferred French couture, particularly the work of Chanel, Balenciaga, and Givenchy, but was aware that in her role as first lady, she would be expected to wear American designers' work. Her style, even today, is considered timeless and quite unique.
