Jackie's Iconic Looks: Favorite #4, Inauguration Night

Jackie launched (and virtually cemented) her iconic-style-status during the inaugural events of her husband's presidency. Although many adore the Oleg Cassini gown she wore the night before, I prefer the Bergdorf-Goodman creation (which Jackie helped deisgn) she wore on inauguration night. For me, the Cassini gown is too simple and not nearly as figure flattering as the BG dress. Of course, keep in mind that Jackie was still recovering from a difficult, premature labor and delivery with John Jr. In all honesty she does justice to both looks, but BG dress ranks among my favorites.
