Katie Holmes as Jackie O
Regardless of whatever you've heard about Katie Holmes' miniseries The Kennedys, there is one reason to tune in—the costumes! Jackie O's exquisite and fabled style was carefully recreated by the costume designers. From the hemlines to the cuffs, every detail was examined to make sure it was exactly right.
In a conversation with head designer Christopher Hargadon, StyleList found out the iconic pink Chanel suit, worn by Jackie O on the day of the assasination, was actually recreated by Giorgio Armani! Christopher says:
It's funny you mention that suit. It was actually done for Katie by Armani. She and Tom have a relationship with Armani, and when they found out she was doing the project, they asked to make her clothes. So we told them she would need 45 or 50 looks for all the episodes and they had to be done in about 72 days. They came back and said, "Then, we'd like to do two." So they made that and her inaugural gown. The rest were made in our workshop in Toronto.So, what do you think. Will you be tuning in to The Kennedys on April 3?
