Ethel, Jackie and Joan



tedkennedyswife:

Joan’s style | “(1966) She is glamorous. She is a fashion plate. She does compare and is a sort of fashion successor to Jackie Kennedy. “Often when I have to go somewhere in a hurry, I set my own hair”, she says. She rolls it up and wraps it in a scarf. But whatever she does with it, on her it looks good.

As for being a clotheshorse, Joan laughs and says : “I don’t have a tremendous amount of clothes. I have a few favorite outfits that I wear all the time. Anyone who knows me sees me in the same dress over and over. I wear an outfit a long time and when it begins to wear out, I like to have it copied in a different fabric or color”. But it is true that Joan has started to design some of her clothes, just as Jackie did when she was a senator’s wife. “Shopping is a luxury in time that I can’t afford. But I love to browse”.
