Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis the ultimate American International Icon of Style. Mrs. Onassis was an exceptional Woman of Style. She was intelligent, exquisitely beautiful, elegant, brimming over with grace, charm, humour, wit, and an enthusiasm for life and living. While she occupied the White House she inspired her fellow citizens both at home and around the globe to not only be the best individual possible but to enhance the self by seeking the best whether in Friends, Relationships, Art, Literature, High Fashion, Entertaining, and Theatre. Her commitment to the ancient aspiration toward excellence is much needed today.

Kennedy" originally aired in February, 1962 speaks to all of Mrs. Onassis' special and unique qualities, as well as, capturing three (3) areas of interest to me and the focus of this site: Fashion; Architecture; and Interior Decoration.
