Jacqueline Kennedy was still wearing the blood-stained watermelon pink suit when she got to the White House in the early-morning hours after her husband was shot dead.

She had refused to take it off at Parkland Hospital in Dallas or on the flight back to Washington with the body of her husband.

Once at the White House, her personal maid put the suit in a bag so Mrs. Kennedy wouldn’t have to look at it.

In the words of President John F. Kennedy, she looked “smashing” in the suit, which may be why the President asked Jackie to wear the now-famous outfit to Dallas on November 22, 1963.

The suit looked like a Coco Chanel, it was actually a knockoff, made in the United States. The first lady wore it at least six times before that fateful day.of November 22, the President even joked about his wife’s style.
