Jackie's Journey

First Lady Jackie Kennedy arriving at the Jaipur Airport 

In 1962, Jackie Kennedy traveled to India on a mission of Goodwill.  She clearly wowed them.  Her March 12 - 24, 1962 visit definitely made an impression on the country.  
These photographs are definitely inspiring: the colors, the spectacle, the fashion.  I would love an Oleg Cassini creation.  It looks like a wonderful trip.
