Forever Stylish

I have watched most of the mini-series 'The Kennedys' over the past couple of weeks and I have to say that I really liked it. Not too 'Hollywood' and action-minded and with a sense of respect and effort to understand and portray the good and the bad dynamics in this family. I had had my doubts about Katie Holmes portraying Jackie Kennedy, well, it is a tough one for sure. However, I actually think she did a very nice job. I didn't crinch my teeth or get cramps in my toes of embarrasment, and actually believed her as Jackie. I guess my opposition was of the fact that I don't know anything of her besides 'Dawson's Creek' and her marriage to Tom Cruise!

And naturally, the costumes was just up my alley.. I love the early 60s period (Mad Men is so spot on me!) and Jackie will always be the go-to woman for impecable style. Not American. Not French. Not European. But world class style. No matter what official or formal part you have to perform, you can always turn to her and lure off some of her tricks.
But beware, it takes more than big sunglasses, pill box hats, white gloves and simple dresses - it takes personality and integrity to pull it off without looking like a wannabe or a dress-up.

You should! I really like it..

And for Katie Holmes, I don't think anyone would have got fantastic reviews anyways just because its Jackie Kennedy!
People seem to treasure her and the White House 'Camelot' so much that they don't want someone to mess with their personal images and beliefs about it.
Its the same with Marilyn Monroe - you don't want anyone else to portray her because she ISN'T Marilyn!
