Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years: Selections from the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum
Metropolitan Museum of Art
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, artefacts 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.
