First Ladies' Inaugural Gowns The White House - PoliticalFest

Lady Bird Johnson Johnson presided over the 1963 event in a canary-yellow bateau-neck gown by John Moore. The down-to-earth First Lady ordered her dress through Neiman Marcus in Texas. "I like clothes—I like them pretty," she told Time, "but I want them to serve me, not for me to serve them.".

Mamie Eisenhower "First Lady pink" became a national sensation following Mrs. Eisenhower's 1953 debut in a peau de soie Nettie Rosenstein design with 2,000 rhinestones. Matching evening gloves and a pearl-encrusted clutch finished the look.

Jacqueline Kennedy For the 1961 celebration, Kennedy collaborated on a design with Bergdorf Goodman's Ethel Frankau. "What you see with the inaugural gown is the triumph of her own personal style," the Fashion Institute of Technology's Valerie Steele has said. "To use fashion as a way of representing her husband's presidency—to look modern, elegant, simple and American." The sheath layered blouson chiffon over a silver-embroidered bodice.

Pat Nixon For the 1969 gala, Nixon selected a mimosa-hued gown designed by Karen Stark for Harvey Berin. "The Nixons are middle-American people who don't want to be flash-in-the-pan," her wardrobe mistress Clara Treyz told Time. "They don't want to be jet-setty or way out. Mrs. Nixon must be ladylike." The First Lady wore the Swarovski crystal-studded satin dress and matching bolero jacket to two more public events.
