And I was worried that the label might be somehow demeaning considering her incredible credentials as a human rights barrister.

STYLE ICON: Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis

As Miss Bouvier, she gave us preppy, debutante, horseriding chic. As Mrs Kennedy she gave us the bags, and the hair, and the First-Lady Fashion.
