Now & Then: Jackie Kennedy

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

If Jackie Kennedy were still alive, she'd be wearing Proenza Schouler's Spring 2011 Ready to Wear Collection.

Jackie Kennedy oozed style. After all we have her to thank for bringing over sized sunglasses into our lives- a personal favorite of mine. She is most widely known for her role as First Lady of the United States from 1961-1963. However, besides being First Lady, Jackie Kennedy also had a very successful career as a book editor in the later part of her life and was known for her contributions to the arts and historic preservation. And all of this equals a lot of dressing up and a lot of events to attend for this girl.  I love the modern edge Proenza Schouler has given to the classic two piece suit, incorporating interesting lines and a fresh color pallet. It reminds me of the very best Jackie Kennedy brought to fashion. To see the rest of the "Now and Then Gang" go here and if you have any requests- leave a comment!
