So extraordinary, the world still knows her by her first name. So stylish, her fashion choices—over-sized sunglasses, glass pearls, statement jewelry, a simple tank watch—are as on-trend today as in the heyday of Camelot. Many of Jackie’s personal items, including gowns and her signature faux pearls, are part of The First Ladies, one of the most popular exhibits at our National Museum of American History.
