We Can't Wait to See Natalie Portman Play Jacqueline Kennedy: How the Late Style Icon's Legacy Lives On
It has been 22 years since Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis passed away, but she has lived on in the public eye as a champion of goodwill and an unforgettable fashion icon.
To honor the late first lady turned book editor, society matron and trendsetter for the ages, we wanted to share why we are excited to see the upcoming big-screen biopic, Jackie—one of many TV and movie treatments featuring JFK’s famous wife.
First of all, we can’t wait to see Natalie Portman play Jackie in the movie, which follows the days immediately following President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963. A seven-minute promo screened at Cannes and reportedly had potential distributors swarming for a shot at acquiring the film.
From the pressed red suit to the classic hair flip, to those signature Jackie Kennedy pearls, it looks as if the movie’s hair, makeup and costume team are set to do the queen of Camelot justice.

A number of actresses have put on the pillbox hat before, including Katie Holmes, Ginnifer Goodwin and Roma Downey, but something tells us Oscar winner Portman’s may be one of the most engrossing portrayals yet. Channeling Jackie’s poised, yet strong and determined disposition seems like a perfect fit for the Black Swan star.
And while Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (née Bouvier) is remembered for her commitment to her family and country, as well as for her elegance, grace and style, we can’t speak of her and not talk about the fashion. Take a look at how she has inspired the fashion choices of some of the most enigmatic and inspirational stars around.
