Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis was poised, polished and educated. America was immediately smitten when she stood by our 35th president, John F. Kennedy, and became our First Lady. Admired for her gracious social skills and her restoration of the White House, her legacy is also marked by her flawless personal style. Only someone with Jackie’s confidence would as likely wear faux pearls as a $500,000.00 brooch to state dinners. The permanent exhibition First Ladies at the Smithsonian displays her inaugural gown.
