Jackie O' - a well-educated and well-travelled woman, rembembered for her impeccable style and her cultural contributions to the United States as the First Lady. A true Corlette Woman!

Some fashion fun-facts about her:

- She loved above-the-elbow gloves, pumps and pillbox hats.
- Her main designer was Oleg Cassini, but she also wore Chanel, Givenchy and Dior. Ironically Chanel and Dior were in deep competion with each other during this time and embodied two opposing visions of womanswear.
- After her time as First Lady, she drastically changed her clothing style and switched from suits with skirts to wide-leg pantsuits, Hermès head scarves and large, round sunglasses.She even started wearing jeans publicly - a very bold move at that time.
- She was a big jewelry fan, wearing Tiffany & Co, Kenneth Jay Lande and Van Cleef & Arpels.
- In 1965, she was added to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.

Some other fun-facts about her:

- Her father was a broker on the Wall Street stock exchange.
- She was a very enthusiastic horseback rider.
- She has one sister and two step-siblings.
- She attained a Bachelor of Arts in French Literature at the George Washington University.
- At one point, she held the position of Inquiring Photographer at The Washington Times Herald.
- She was introducted to John Kennedy by Charles Bartlett, a Pulitzer Prize winner, at a dinner party.
- As First Lady, she revamped the social events in the White House and organised the restoration of the White House.
