"Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years—Selections from the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum"
2001-05-01 until 2001-07-29
Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York, NY, USA

To mark the fortieth anniversary of her emergence as America's first lady and explore her enduring global influence on style, the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute celebrates Jacqueline Kennedy with an unprecedented special exhibition of her iconic fashions. Some eighty original costumes and accessories from the collection of the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum in Boston are on view, featuring clothing worn by Jacqueline Kennedy on the campaign trail, during the inaugural festivities, at the White House itself, and on state visits around the world.

Among the many highlights are the celebrated pillbox hat and fawn coat Mrs. Kennedy wore for the inaugural ceremonies on the steps of the Capitol; the regal ivory satin gown she wore to the pre-Inaugural Gala; the beaded evening gown in which she dazzled Nikita Khrushchev; and the red wool suit she wore for her televised Valentine's Day tour of the White House. Also included are documents and objects associated with Mrs. Kennedy's work on White House restoration, historic preservation, and the arts.

The exhibition is made possible by L'Oréal. Additional support has been provided by Condé Nast. The exhibition was organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum.
