I don’t think she was staggeringly beautiful. But I do think she was staggeringly fabulous. And she had such a great sense of style, was so effortlessly chic, that she always seemed to be one of the most beautiful and intriguing of them all.
A couple of months ago I was in Capri, and my friend Aldo was showing me photos of himself with the former Mrs Kennedy when she would visit the island. Aldo made sandals for her, so I always get him to make me sandals too. I love thinking that she and I share a shoemaker.
Anyway, I love looking at pictures of Jackie Onassis on the island of Capri. I always wonder if the sandals she has on were made for her by Aldo. I love her white pants and black T shirt. I love her huge glasses. I love her style. I love the lifestyle she represents. So much more interesting than Camelot, don’t you think?
