1956 classic Kennedy style/....before affairs and deceit. How hard to maintain an apparent "perfect" marriage in the press & in front of the public, when you KNOW your husband is attracted to many women and has been unfaithful.
Jackie selected the designer Oleg Cassini to create many pieces in her wardrobe, including her hats, her bags, and this gorgeous gown, which she wore to an inaugural concert in January 1961. (Just two months after giving birth to John Jr., she is stunningly slim.) The new first lady, however, designed her own inauguration ball gown; according to LIFE, it made her "resemble both a fairy princess at a fancy dress ball and a little girl enjoying her first party."
Jackie & John Kennedy I love the way she holds him.....her loving hand spread across his back, palm open...
