A previously published photo by the great Alfred Eisenstaedt captures Jackie Kennedy somehow looking at once regal and wholly at ease while seated on a bus. “A lady,” Norman Mailer wrote of Jacqueline Kennedy, “whose face might be too imaginative for the taste of a democracy which likes its first ladies to be executives of home-management.” See more photos here.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis 1929 - 1994 FORMER FIRST LADY We admired her chic when she was First Lady, her grace under pressure when tragedy struck, her dedication to motherhood, and how she reinvented herself as a successful book editor and advocate for historic preservation. And we miss her strong and elegant presence.
Photo Caption from LIFE Magazine: Sitting Pretty In New York City, Jackie sits on the steps of a campaign bus, chatting with Mayor Wagner. By the time of JFK’s inauguration three months later, pillboxes were all the rage in New York, selling for as much as $70 in hat shops (that’s more than $400 in today’s dollars). Meanwhile, previously unknown models who even vaguely resembled Jackie suddenly found their schedules booked.
