Though it’s received some criticism for historical inaccuracy, I’m eagerly awaiting the History Channel’s Kennedy mini series starring Katie Holmes. I think she looks darling in Jackie’s trademark pillbox hat and if nothing else, the series will certainly be a fashion dream.

I agree-if nothing else, it will make for fabulous early 60’s eye candy!
Agreed! The fashion will be great. Not so sure about Katie as Jackie though. She looks like her but I’m really hoping the acting will be up to par as well.

When I first was looking at the photo’s, it’s amazing how Katie Holmes, has perfected Jackie Kennedy. I, totally agree with the comments before me… I don’t know how her acting will be…I certainly, feel she may have a
difficult time with Jackie’s voice… Yet, it should make for a very interesting show.

I would never have thought of her to play Jackie O but seeing these pics makes me think it was a great casting choice. I’ll definitely tune in just for the fashions!
Curiousity has the best of me; that’s for sure. Ms. Holmes She’s quite good. I do kind of wish it was the woman who played Jackie in HBO’s Grey Gardens though (her name is escaping me.) Jeannie Tripplehorn? I hope you are well! x Emily
Yes, fashion is sure to be fabulous. But Katie H? Mmmmmmmm. Maybe she shouldn’t smile too much.
One of my style icons Jackie, should be very interesting!!

Yes, let’s delight on the fashion and the rare evocations of Jackie herself. Though even by the photos dear Katie (not ours: YOU) will make us miss (and admire) Jackie even more :sigh: – wrong head manners, those legs always seemeing to dance a different tune from the arms, Katie managed to look serious (even angry) without frowning and Kate can’t – no, KatieHolmes (as sweet as she is) is no Jackie material… but then the resemblance was too strong to pass, I guess.
Have a Nice Day!
Oh I meant Jackie didn’t frown when getting serious or angry and Katie can’t resist it, adding a sterneness expression that ruin Jackie’s “Royal” one
