#Flashbackfriday: Pretty In Pink

Jackie Kennedy (Onassis) remains in fashion history as one of the most elegant first-ladies. The ’60s were marked by her clothing choices, and millions of women around the world watched her outfits with admiration and tried to reproduce them. Perhaps the most iconic fashion statement worn by Jackie Kennedy was her pink Chanel suit. Worn on the day of John F. Kennedy’s tragic death, the pink suit has become a symbol of her husband’s assassination and one of the lasting images of the 1960s. Even Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) from the movie Legally Blonde knew this was a powerful look when she made her debut in Washington D.C. Barbie even make an Elle Woods Barbie in the pink suit with matching pillbox hat. While visiting British troops in 1995, Princess Diana wore a Jackie O. inspired pink suit by Gianni Versace, and in May of 2012, the Duchess wore a rose pink dress by Emilia Wickstead and L.K. Benett heels to a garden party held at Buckingham Palace in celebration of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee. Since the 60’s there have been many variations and alterations to the original cut of this popular suit however, there will always only be the ‘one’ worn by Jackie.
