When Jackie Kennedy came to the White House, America got a first lady who loved clothes. She introduced the nation to high fashion, reading French Vogue in the White House. She worked with former Paramount Studios costume designer Oleg Cassini to construct her image around a very simple wardrobe. She wore the designs of Hubert de Givenchy to meet Charles de Gaulle, and wore brilliant colors, which were brought to homes across America on color TV. Jackie's taste was elitist and out of reach for most Americans—but its simplicity was accessible.
