Looking for Jackie: American Fashion Icons

Передня обкладинка
With no monarchy to emulate, Americans have long been drawn to women who possessed style, charisma, & grace. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis possessed these qualities in abundance. Looking for Jackie provides an examination of American women who were the "Jackies" of their era, women who, since 1800, have had a similar impact on American fashion, especially on how the average woman dresses. In this way, the book reveals how these women's distinctive personal styles captured the imagination of the American public, & influenced popular fashion. Looking for Jackie surveys the chronological evolution of American fashion icons. Fourteen women of style from 1800 to 1998 are featured, illustrating style & fashion changes, & how these influences became incorporated into style for the rest of us. Among the women profiled are: Dolley Madison; Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte, the American sister-in-law of Napoleon; Harriet Lane Johnston, the niece of bachelor President James Buchanan; Joan Crawford; Katharine Hepburn; & Grace Kelly. Looking for Jackie is a gem for the library of any woman who cares about dressing well, & living with style.
