No words today, just a pictorial homage to the one and only JBKO, my very own style icon.

My ultimate girl crush... Iconic like no other... gorgeous like no other... stylish like no other... I had to laugh tho'... what the hell what Jack thinking wearing those white tube socks with dark shoes and on the beach no less!? LOL (I do tend to notice everything!)

I just love all of these images! She was the perfect example of class and grace! I'm getting my hair colored and cut today, and I think I'm getting her color (a little darker than what I've got now) and the cut will be a little longer than shoulder length. Thanks for the inspiration!

Beautiful! Style, grace, she had it all, didn't she? Have you seen recent photos of her granddaughter, Rose (Caroline's eldest)? She has been blessed with many of Jackie and John Jr.'s features. Very pretty young woman (who just graduated from Harvard, which is sooo hard to believe!)

Sigh...she was just so lovely.
Grace and elegance, and you can see that she is so comfortable in her own skin.

Thank you Lily, many photos I had never seen. Truly a woman I feel connected to and have as long as I can remember admired. Her love for her children was so brilliant. A big hug for a marvelous post xx

My Little Boudoir said...

She was truly a class act. I adore her style. Plus, she had a pretty fabulous boudoir in the White House, too. It was decorated in baby blue with a chinoiserie touch. She was amazing!

I remember the black Valentino dress. I also remember the sweater trimmed with fur. I believe it was by YSL.
