Jacqueline Kennedy is one of history's great style icons. Her profound influence on the way an entire generation wanted to look, dress and behave cannot be overestimated' - Hamish Bowles, Vogue.
A behind-the-scenes look at the clothes and the era that made Jacqueline Kennedy the beacon of style whose enduring legacy lives on. Featuring 80 original and memorable gowns, suits and accessories from those housed at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum, this collection presents the clothes themselves against a historical backdrop of personal notes, artifacts and little-known anecdotes provided by such White House insiders as Pulitzer-Prize winning historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr (author of A THOUSAND DAYS, a study of the Kennedy White House) and close friend of the American First Lady, Mrs Jane Wrightsman. The book presents images of Jacqueline Kennedy that are both new and surprising as well as familiar images that have seeped into the world's consciousness.

Released to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Jacqueline Kennedy's "emergence" as a style icon, the book presents an eclectic selection of suits, evening dresses, daywear and accessories from the John F Kennedy Library and Museum collection. Divided into cities where each item was first worn, the gowns, suits and dresses are first presented alone in a full-page colour photo. Each is accompanied by various photos of Jackie wearing the item, along with detailed design notes and the history and anecdotes behind the outfit. ( These photos provide wonderful context, as it becomes clearly obvious that Mrs Kennedy's carriage and persona injected life into the clothes (sometimes markedly different from what one might call each item's on-the-rack "personality").

This stunning book celebrates the 40th anniversary of Jacqueline Kennedy's emergence as America's First Lady and explores her enduring influence on style.
