Grace Kelly’s style was beautiful.

 

My hair and headpiece were heavily influenced by Kate Middleton:

 Eveytime I see Jackie Kennedy’s dress I am reminded of those Vera Wang dresses (and probably copycats) with the big layers of florals made with petals in the skirt, like the one Chelsea Clinton wore. I wonder if the Jackio-O dress was an inspiration for that style.

I think that strapless dress bodices, while ubiquitious, are simple, and for that reason will age very well throughout upcoming decades. Anything that shows off the girl rather than the dress will age better than a dress that demands center stage.

I think that skirts/bottoms that are trendy now and that will not age well are mermaids. They remind me too much of those hobble dresses from the 1910’s. Feminists are supposed to hate them.

Yet many (most?) trumpet dresses strike me as being beautifully classic. A-line and ballgowns simply ARE classic.

Jackie O

Princess Di
