    Enjoyed the commentary. Many of the pictures are repeats. Well written and engaging.

    This is a great book! It's more Franklin Mint than trenchant political history, but that is exactly what I'm looking for in a book about the fashion of a public figure. I just want to read about what they wore, not their larger historical significance (for instance, the book skimmed right over the issues of infidelity and unhappiness in Jackie and Jack's marriage).It is full of lovely pictures, mostly black and white but color when they are available. It's organized chronologically and by type of clothing (evening, daywear, casual sportswear). It strikes just the right balance of text and photos--adequate description and information on the designers and Jackie's personal taste without becoming too much about the author or the story and not enough about the clothes. Although it is neither high literature nor high art, I think this is a superb piece of fashion history.

    This book is more to my liking & filled with many colour photographs & interesting captions. My favorite chapter was at the end where we're privy to see Jackie's fashion mishaps....an ill fitting gown, silly hats, a spill on her blouse, shoulder pads peeking thro sheer chiffon or a run in her stocking - it all helps to make her very real! I enjoyed it.

    This is a reasonable visual history of the wardrobe of Jackie Kennedy during the years she was First Lady, with some material from before and after. The prose is a little breathless and fawning, and it lacks an index.
