Today’s LEWK is brought to you by none other than the painfully chic Jackie O.
In fact, it’s inspired by a very specific gown — this pink Dior number — she wore to a dinner honoring André Malraux, then France’s Minister of Cultural Affairs. What I love so much about the coverage of this particular dress, was the way she seemed to carry herself in that room — amongst politicians, foreign officials and dignitaries — and all eyes are quite literally turned to her. She beams in all of these photos with such grace and self-awareness. And yes, elegance in spades.
Of course, you could make the argument that she had that effect in every room — after all, she could speak four languages, making her the perfect liaison at most foreign official gatherings. But something about this particular gown moment and the way she’s smiling from ear to ear, always gets me smiling, too.
With that in mind, I wanted to end our third and final installment at the TWA Hotel with an ode to Jackie O — revered international style and cultural icon — who very likely might have walked these halls at TWA herself, before hopping out of town with a scarf wrapped around her head.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
