He wanted the prestige she would bring to the union. She loved clothes and an elegant lifestyle for herself and her children. Despite what anyone tries to convince him/herself, it takes a good deal of money to dress well -- the quirky, vintage store look wouldn't have worked for her.

Why she's noteworthy ( to partially answer someone's earlier post about why she was famous)...

Jackie practically won John's second Presidential term. She vigorously campaigned for his reelection ( and I believe she was having a difficult pregnancy during this time, someone else can check whether this part is correct) because John's campaign managers knew Jackie's worth. She really pulled in the votes.

She was a national treasure with foreign relations/policy. Fluent in at least French and possibly other languages as well, she was a great communicator.

Most importantly ( and she would have agreed with this), she was a FANTASTIC mother. Her kids came first ALWAYS.
I agree with most of it, especially that it does take money to dress like she did.

Umm, JFK was killed in 1963, 3 years into his first presidential term. He died before ever having the chance to campaign for his second presidential term, nevermind actually winning it.
So I doubt anyone can give Jackie credit for winning an election that never took place.

I hope these haven't been posted before.

Jacqueline Kennedy, wife of Sen. John F. Kennedy, dances with Oleg Cassini, at the Belmont Ball, Palm Beach, Fla., 1954.


President John F. Kennedy and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, in a fur-trimmed suit designed by Oleg Cassini, at his inauguration, 1961.


Jacqueline Kennedy lifts the skirt of her ivory double-faced silk satin twill inaugural ball gown, designed by Oleg Cassini, as she and her husband, president-elect John F. Kennedy, leave their Washington, D.C., home en route to the inaugural concert.
