Contrary to the title, this book is not only dedicated to Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis personal style. First and foremost it is a beautify illustrated biography, describing Jacqueline’s life from earliest childhood and adolescence, through beginnings of her husband’s political career up to the glamorous Kennedy presidency and the White House period, followed by her turbulent marriage with Onassis, ending with professional career in publishing and years spent in NY.
Nonetheless, readers hoping to find more insight into Jackie’s wardrobe and a key to her inimitable personal style won’t be disappointed, as fashion is one of the most important subjects discussed in relation to different phases of her exciting life. Make up looks, essential pieces as well as famous pillbox hats earned separate passages, being presented in detail.
