Jackie & John Kennedy
Jackie Kennedy & JFK 1963 Dallas--I loved that pink suit. I made one to match.
John and Jackie Kennedy at Love Field in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. From Life Magazine..."Now in the sunny freshness of a Texas morning,” LIFE wrote in its Nov. 29, 1963, issue, alongside the first photo in this gallery, “with roses in her arms and a luminous smile on her lips, Jacqueline Kennedy still had one hour to share the buoyant surge of life with the man at her side.”
But her innate sense of style extended way beyond the state visits and society functions of the Kennedy era. When Jackie was widowed in 1963, her style changed dramatically. Gone were the conservative ‘campaign wife’ clothes, replaced with pantsuits, jeans, large lapel jackets, silk Hermès head scarves and of course those trademark large, round, dark sunglasses.

Jackie Kennedy (1963) in Chanel. Worn on November 22, 1963, the day President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated. Its been called the most legendary garment in American history. After JFK was assassinated, she kept the blood-stained on during the swearing-in of Lyndon Johnson while returning to D.C. The still-stained suit is stored out of public view in the National Archives.
