About this item

The legendary Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis remains the first lady of fashion for legions of fans around the world?thanks largely to her collaborations with iconic designer Oleg Cassini.

As the glamorous Kennedys took the White House in 1961, first lady Jackie appointed famed designer (and her good friend) Oleg Cassini, as her personal ?Secretary of Style.” From the classic pillbox hats, casual elegance, and A-line and empire dresses, Cassini created an enduring look for the stylish Mrs. Kennedy, and she became a fashion muse for the ages. Meanwhile, women across the country enthusiastically copied her look?one that endures today and that transformed Jackie into one of the most beloved style icons of all time. Cassini designed hundreds of looks for the first lady, including the satin gown that she wore to the Inaugural Ball in 1961. The dress has been named one of the ?50 Dresses that Changed the World” by the Design Museum in England.

Jackie and Cassini showcases the fashions and details the collaborations of a one-of-a-kind teaming of designer and muse.
