OK, so there’s this guy named Jim Hart who just wrote a memoir. I don’t know much about him (beyond the fact that he used to be married to Carly Simon), but he claims to have been good friends with Jackie Kennedy Onassis back in the day, and his Just Kids-looking book—which has an introduction by Carl Bernstein and a…
On January 9, 1963, the National Gallery of Art in Washington first displayed the “Mona Lisa,” if you’ve ever heard of it. The painting had already been seen by a group of VIPs the night before, including Jacqueline Kennedy, who spearheaded the effort to get it to America.
Jackie Kennedy epitomized American style and grace during the middle of the 20th century. So it’s no surprise that the movies she watched in the White House would reflect that. From Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita to John Huston’s The Misfits, Jackie screened some true classics during her relatively short time at…
Here is your first look at Natalie Portman’s upcoming performance as Jackie Kennedy. The trailer largely consists of lingering, vaguely unnerving shots of the actress as the iconic first lady paired with Richard Burton singing the finale to the musical Camelot. Lay it on me, Hollywood.
Natalie Portman is playing Jacqueline Kennedy in Jackie, a film directed by Pablo Larraín who also produced this year’s Nasty Baby and is helming the upcoming Neruda. The movie, set for release sometime in 2017, will take place following the days after President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963.
Michelle Obama taking three tries to break a champagne bottle on the nose of a submarine is charming and weirdly mesmerizing. But she isn’t the first First Lady to struggle a little with the old christening rigamarole. For instance, watch Bess Truman just hammering away at this ambulance plane.
Natalie Portman has been cast as Jackie Kennedy in a new, no-we-have-not-made-enough-moving-pictures-of-a-large-and-small-format-about-Jackie-Kennedy-and-the-rest-of-the-Kennedy-family, film.
If you need a little push to sprinkle some color into your wardrobe, consider this little communique from human argument for the glamour of sunglasses Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis: "I just love this suit & will wear it everywhere as I am SO sick of everyone constantly in black — like Mediterranean villages where…
There are tasteful ways to talk about the looming anniversary of the JFK assassination, and then there's the New York Post's way, which involves mentioning the little-known-fact that JFK and Jackie totally boned on Air Force One during a short flight from San Antonio to Houston on Nov. 21, just 24 hours before the…
Amid the paroxysm of gasping that gripped the nation this week when Michelle Obama told "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King that she's not "some angry black woman," political pundits may have lost some historical perspective. Exhibit A: their breathless discussion of the ‘salacious' details in Jodi Kantor's…
There's more to the newly released tapes of Jacqueline Kennedy than her disdain for Martin Luther King Jr. The young widow of the tapes also voices some unfavorable opinions towards several women in public life, many of whom had a different view of a woman's role than she did at the time.
A new book of interviews reveals Jackie Kennedy didn't like Martin Luther King, Jr. very much — and his cheating was one of the reasons.
The Kennedy family has eight hours of tape made by Jackie just months after JFK's death. To hear some outlets tell it, the tapes include the former First Lady's conspiracy theories about the assassination and tales of her own extramarital affairs. Others say they're not as salacious. We're about to find out.
While her tragically iconic suit has been preserved for posterity, the hat has disappeared.
We've heard that Suri Cruise is really into fashion before, but in the February issue of Elle, Katie Holmes reiterates how dedicated her daughter is to clothes.
The challenge: To use Jackie Kennedy as inspiration and create "classic American sportswear." But what's considered "classic," or "American" or "sportswear" varied wildly amongst the designers!
