^ that should be interesting cause I don't see any similarity with Rachel but with Katie in some pictures I can see it but Jackie I feel like had a very distinct voice that all portrayals miss completely. I remember the clip of her thank the American people for their support when Pres. JFK died and the way she spoke was like nothing else to me. So elegant and almost British sounding but not really. It was just lovely to hear.

^ Same here. I'm not too fond of Katie Holmes, and I can't wait to see Rachel as Jackie.

Neither - but you never know. Some seamstresses are so good - they couldve come in handy.

^ Wasn't there also a long time feud between Oleg Cassini and Halston about who did Jackie's hats during the White House years?

^ the little that I read on that was that it was said that halston didnt acclaim credit..

Oleg is mentioned a lot more in terms of dressing her from top to bottom though.. and apparently his work was supported by sketches he made before the actual finished garment/hat etc..
atleast everytime ive read about what she wore - oleg has been credited :S

BUT i found this link that talks about hallston more - http://coutureallure.blogspot.com/20...nedy-hats.html

sigh.

The dress was Chanel and had a dark blue collar. It was stored in Jackie's mother's attic inside a box with Nov. 22, 1963 written on it.

For political reasons she had to hide the fact that she preferred european designers to American. Cassini helped with this, but her sister Lee who was living in London used to assist with obtaining the French designers.
