The star-studded and hot new miniseries The Kennedy’s finally premiered. After getting dropped from The History Channel (rumors say due to Kennedy family objections), the show found a home on ReelzChannel. The 8-part series covers (and uncovers) the saucy goings-on of the Kennedy clan, starting with JFK’s college days.
So far the critics aren’t loving it, but that’s not going to dampen our enduring obsession with this family dynasty. As has often been said, the Kennedy are the de-facto American royal family, and we just can’t enough of them – especially when its salacious, scandalous and stylish! In a year of royal weddings and kingly Oscar winners, The Kennedy’s miniseries it trending just perfectly with what I predict will be a return to the classics.
Katie Holmes plays Jackie O. and who, I ask you, WHO, has a more iconic sense of style than the ever glamourous Jackie O? Her classic look of shift dresses, big buttoned pea coats and large sunglasses goes exceptionally well in our Mad-Men inspired fashion climate. What really sells the look, however is the jewelry. Jackie was known to have had a vast and impressive jewelry collection, but her most enduring items are the classic pearl necklace and pearl earrings.
Interestingly, in related fashion news, Katie Holmes is also the new face of Ann Taylor’s spring campaign, which emphasizes clean lines and monochromatic palettes that are elegant, but still accessible. It seems that the simplicity and grace exemplified by Jackie’s look are nicely reflected in this new line, and I think adding a little Jackie-inspired jewelry will bring it all home.
