Please delete this if there already is a thread on her but I searched and I (oddly) couldn't find one!

Jackie loved clothes. It may have been genetic.Her mother loved clothes, her sister loved clothes, and her Father Black Jack loved clothes. Here are some things that were in Jackies Closet, to help you get that Jackie Look for yourself.
  • Sleevless A-Line dresses-
    for the spring and summer. Irish linen or raw silk. Best in light colors; white , pink, taupe.
  • Lots of Valentino-
    Especially trousers and silk shirts
  • White Jeans-
    Now is not the time to slack on your yoga, and go easy on the carbs! Beltless white jeans, and a black turtleneck, NEVER tucked in.
  • Hermes Scarf-
    Jackie had a black "horoscope" design hermes scarf that she wore.
  • Jack Rodgers-
    sandals
  • Helene Arpels-
    Her shop is on park avenue. Great Givenchys, Princess Di favored the loafers
  • T. Anthony Luggage-
    Leave the Louis Vuitton for Diana Vreeland and Joan Rivers, and opt for T.Anthony instead.
  • A good french suit-
    Falling to the middle of your knee with three quarter sleeves on the jacket.Chanel, Givenchy,Cassini. If you buy a modern version, make sure its the best material you can afford
  • Riding Clothes-
    Hacking Jackets from Huntsman and Saville Row.
  • House charge at Van Cleef & Arpels. Harry Winston,or David Webb.-
    Serious Jewelry. Van Cleef, her engagement ring and wedding ring came from there. 40 carat diamond from Winston.
  • Three strand pearl necklace-
    from Kenneth Jay Lane
  • Vagal Riding Boots-
    worn while at Vassar
  • Keds Sneakers-
    For evading the Ron galellas.

quote and following two pictures from http://www.jfklibrary.org/
Quote:
Jacqueline Bouvier's ivory silk wedding gown required 50 yards of ivory silk taffeta and took more than two months to make. It was the creation of Ann Lowe, an African-American dress-maker born in Clayton, Alabama, who had designed gowns for the matrons of high society families including the du Pont, Lodge, and Auchincloss families. Ms. Lowe was 54 when she designed the Bouvier wedding dress which featured a portrait neckline and bouffant skirt decorated with interwoven bands of tucking and tiny wax flowers.
....
The bride wore her grandmother's heirloom rosepoint lace veil, attached to her hair with a small tiara of lace and traditional orange blossoms. She also wore a single strand of family pearls, a diamond leaf pin which was a wedding present from Ambassador and Mrs. Joseph P. Kennedy and a diamond bracelet the groom had presented to her the evening before the wedding. She carried a bouquet of white and pink spray orchids and gardenias.

Jackie is certainly a icon of style, but I'm not sure about class, after how she behaved towards Aristotle Onassis.

i personally don't like her at all. I find her ugly, conceited (without reason;-), and don't like her style so much. Too tight and simple.don't get me wrong i like clean-cut. I love Calvin and Narciso and Ralph. but her style is a no no. What about her anyway? and please just give me 1 reason she's famous!

Well, to each their own. Thankyou for starting this, Mercedes!

I have the most beautiful book of photography on Jackie.. I wish I could scan all the pictures! I will slowly add to this thread, as I find my favorites.. I don't think there is a picture of Jackie I don't love.

I guess the perception of their union would be who's book you read or what movie or documentary you watched. I wouldn't know how Jackie behaved towards Ari as I was not there as a witness, however, I would bet the bank Ari was no "saint" in that marriage either .

I was so entraced by her as a little girl. I would always get books out at the library about the kennedy's and I had this big hardback book on her and just used to flip through the pages and listen to music. I think she was great too because she showed that being first lady doesn't mean you can't be chic.
