THE STYLE OF AN ICON

Jacqueline Bouvier, better known as Jackie Kennedy (1929-1994) was The Style Icon of her time.

She made a lasting impact on fashion, because of her impeccable style-consciousness. Her style was simple and classical, but at the same time very modern. That is maybe why she continues to inspire today.

The "Jackie-look" was created by the French-born American Fashion designer, Oleg Cassini (1913-2006), who was appointed "Secretary of Style" in 1961.






Take a look at some of his dresses on The John F. Kennedy - Presidential Library and Museum.
