First Lady’s Assassination Dress To Be Kept From Public Till 2103

A Minnesota man is among the few who have seen one iconic piece of history from the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated: The suit worn by First Lady Jackie Kennedy. The simple pink suit with black collar and pillbox hat became among the most iconic of modern images, and came to symbolize the day life changed in America. Mrs. Kennedy wore the outfit, a copy of a favorite Chanel design, while sitting next to her husband in the motorcade in Dallas. And she wore it on the plane back to Washington when Lyndon Johnson took the oath of office, and when her husband’s casket was off-loaded into a gray U.S. Navy ambulance.
