    Finally a thread on her. She is absolutely, horribly fantastic. Beautiful and stylish.

    I see so many focal points of her style in today's. Like teh big sunglasses.

    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.:yuk: 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!:blink:

    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.

    This picture is among my most favorites - this one just says it all to me.. just irresistibly beautiful and magnetic.

    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 :sick:.

    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.

    She is in my opinion a style icon. Very chic, surprisingly chic too, when it comes to a first lady. She was also very beautiful.

    Jacki-O glasses, no surprised that's what they are called. :heart:

    I don't feel that way just based on how she behaved towards her husband, but that she was so intent on wrangling money out of their union, even after her Aristotle's death strikes me as gold-digger like.

    These two people were not stupid, she was his prize, his trophy and he had all the money she would ever need. Right before he died he tried to cut her from everything, but he didn't quite make it. What she got was peanuts compared to his vast fortune.

    On another note, here are some of the pictures I really love, probably because they are in color:
