I have always loved her wedding dress!
I love her! And her dress is exquisite.
If only he hadn't been so cruel to her ... that picture would be less haunting.
Me too. It is a haunting picture, but it's still so beautiful.
I posted the picture due to the details matching the Viktor&Rolf dress. I thought it was a very close match.Interesting tidbit: Jackie hated her dress. Her mother chose it.
Kennedy's dress was commissioned by her mother and designed by Ann Lowe, a talented, society designer Afro-American who had designed for her for years as well as for the Biddles, Lodges, and other patrician-type families for years. You can read more about her and other wonderful women who are profiled in the book, THE THREADS OF TIME,THE Fabric of History, 288 pp., 2007, written by Rosemary E. Reed Miller, Available from T & S Press, tel. 202- 723-9007.
Joe Kennedy and Jackie's mother ran the 1953 wedding.They chose Ann Lowe, an Afro-American designer who later, the 1960s, had a Bridal Section at Saks Fifth Avenue to design the more 'traditional dress.Ann's story and others can be verified in the book, THE THREADS OF TIME, THE FABRIC OF HISTORY, written by r. Reed Miller, T & S Press, 2007. Google it for more details.
my grandmothers friends worked for Oleg Casini and my mother has one of the flowerettes (an extra) from Jacquelyn Kennedy's wedding dress. Do you think it has any value?
