Jackie 2.O

Sometimes when you hear a car squeeking, you hear the Tardis. Well, if you listen very very closely you do. Sometimes you take a picture of yourself and see Jackie O. Well, if you squeeze your eyes very very tight you do.

Jackie O was of course the wife of John F. Kennedy. She was a very cultivated person and "saved" the White House. She, of course, is also known as the most charming and stylish person that ever walked on earth. So there's no shame in trying to meet that title in the slightest.


When I picture Jackie O, I always see her wearing something pink. It's a colour that suited her very well and in someway went hand-in-hand with her character. For me, pink is endulging yet tragic. It marks a time without being bound to it. Pink speaks in a sort of matter. May this be the particular shade of the pinkness or the way it's been worn. Jackie always chose for something timeless (regardless of the pink) and thereby making a statement of honoring the past and heading to the future. She moved on with her life, a hard thing to do, and is even now very inspirational. She manage to be a lasting icon in a world that hops from one thing to the other, without thinking about the enduring trace it makes.

"I have been through a lot and have suffered a great deal. But I have had lots of happy moments, as well. Every moment one lives is different from the other. The good, the bad, hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love and happiness are all interwoven into one single, indescribable whole that is called life. You cannot seperate the good from the bad. And perhaps there is no need to do so, either".
Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (1929-1994)
