This is a designer replica of a silk suit and pillbox hat worn by Jacqueline Kennedy during a 1961 state visit to France. Oleg Cassini, the first lady’s official designer, created the ensemble. The necklace is a copy of the triple-strand pearls that the first lady often wore. Photo: Sarah Mercier/Newseum; suit, hat and pearls: Loan, Oleg Cassini
