Jackie Kennedy Onassis (1929 - 1994)

Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis was the United States' First Lady from 1961 to 1963 until the assassination of her husband, John F. Kennedy. After the president's death, she refused to remove her now iconic blood-stained pink Chanel suit and pillbox hat, wanting the world 'to see what they had done to Jack.' Her courage following her husband's murder won her admiration from around the world; however after Robert Kennedy was shot, in 1968, she feared for her life in the United States and married Greek magnate, Aristotle Onassis. This marriage was controversial and she became the target of the paparazzi who nicknamed her 'Jackie O'. A fashion icon, from classic First Lady to gypset glamour, she competed her life long with another American icon, Grace Kelly…As for her love life, in spite of her prestigious lovers, she might have been an eternal number 2. When Marilyn Monroe decided to sing for Kennedy's forty-fifth birthday, Jackie didn't attend the meeting. When Onassis decided to marry her, he was still partly in love for Callas...
