Jacky Kennedy's style combined a glamorous flair with the utmost elegance, and emulating that would be no easy task, but it looks like someone is up to the challenge. Natalie Portman has signed on to play Jackie Kennedy in an upcoming biopic called Jackie(what else?), and she is totally right for the part.
The film will span the course of the days after JFK's assassination in 1963, which should be quite interesting to see from the perspective of his wife for a change. However what I am most looking forward to seeing is the incredible fashion of the late Jackie O. brought back to life. From perfectly paired coordinating suits to lavish head pieces and ladylike gowns, Jackie Kennedy represents a strong political figure who used timeless fashion to make powerful statements.
Personally, I can't wait to see how Natalie Portman pulls this off. Yes, the costume department will be faced with the daunting task of crafting the incredible wardrobe for the film, but it will be up to Portman to really own it and make herself believable as the former First Lady. Judging by her track record, Portman is well-suited to portray the style icon. Here are five amazing Natalie Portman outfits that prove she deserves to play Jackie O.
1. Retro Mod Dress
Jackie to a T. Even the hair is on point.
2. Structured Jacket
This is soo Jackie O. Do you see it?
3. Classic Black & White
This monochrome dress is totally something Jackie would wear.
4. Pant Suits
Powerful and classy.
5. Classic Glam
This is a match made in sartorial heaven.
