Jackie's Iconic Looks: Favorite #2, The Pink Chanel

Many people may not realize it, but Jackie wore the famous 'raspberry wool' Chanel suit several times before that fateful November day. Here she is,in 1962, looking over plans for revitalizing an area in D.C., for example.

Like most of her outfits, the suit was stunning on her. Although the length of the sleeves is distracting, it's an eye-catching ensemble and an ideal choice for riding in an open-top motorcade.

Interesting that the hat that accompanied her outfit went missing at Parkland Hospital. The dress was never washed, and thanks to Jackie's mother Janet, the dress was boxed and later stored in the National Archives. A beautiful piece scarred by a tragic event.
