The Kennedys on the Day of the Assassination

The pink bouclé suit Jackie Kennedy wore in Dallas on November 22, 1963 has become a part of history–it’s what she was wearing the day her husband, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated in Dealey Plaza. According to lore, Mrs. Kennedy refused to take the suit off after it was stained with her slain husband’s blood, saying “Let them see what they’ve done.”

But designer Karl Lagerfeld claims that the iconic suit, long thought to be a Chanel creation, was a fake. He purports it was a “line-by-line copy by [Oleg] Cassini.”

There exists another theory, that the ensemble was created from a Chanel design, but it was made by the Chez Ninon dress shop in New York. The rationale being that after being criticized for buying outlandishly expensive designer clothing, Mrs. Kennedy wanted to save on costs, as well as support the American (rather than French) economy.

The suit, according to an LA Times article, is now “perfectly preserved in a vault in Maryland…banned from public display for 100 years.”

One Response to “Was Jackie Kennedy’s Pink Chanel Suit from Assassination a Fake?”

  1. The Moorman photograph taken Dallas Texas 22 November 1963, shows two snipers nests on the Grassy Knoll, with muzzle flashes behind the picket fence left screen.

    With E Howard Hunt firing on President Kennedy, and Martin Luther and Coretta King to his right, and Afro Secret Serviceman Abraham Bolden behind and to Coretta’s left, the “Badgeman” enhancement, shows Dallas Police officer Joe Smith, firing from behind the rotunda wall.

    Alongside Gordon H Arnold talking on a hand held radio, with an unidentified bald guy, and deaf mute Ed Hoffman and his missus to his left!

    William F Buckley, has been identified as Umbrella Man, whose raised device signaled the shooters on the GK, that all systems were go!

    Lee Harvey Oswald was blamed for killing the President, and Dallas Police Officer Tippets, a couple miles away around forty minutes later.

    Despite photographs that show him at the doorway of the TSBD, when the shots were fired in the first instance, and when the three tramps were marched by hours later!

    Ted Gunderson FBI Bureau Chief in Dallas, when President K was murdered, is in a video in possession of a rifle on the sixth floor of the TSBD, after the shooting.

    He was in Memphis Tennessee, when Martin Luther King was shot, and in Los Angeles California, when Senator Robert Kennedy was slain, he subsequently became one of the principles in the Franklin Case Cover up.

    Which goes back nearly thirty years, that has testimony from Rusty Nelson, that Hunter S Thompson paid him $100,000 a time, to film snuff killings to the tune of around fifty dead!

    The Three tramps were E Howard Hunt of Watergate fame, Charles Harrelson father of TV actor Woody Harrelson, and Charles Frederick Rogers, wanted in Houston TX, for killing and dismembering both his parents in 1965.

    As the limousine emerged from behind the freeway sign, the driver William Greer turned and looked over his right shoulder, he turned back, and while holding the steering wheel with his left hand, retrieved something from under the dash with his right hand.

    He then transferred the object in his right hand to his left hand, and turning back around to look at the President, he brought his left hand around his body, and aimed and fired at John Kennedy’s head.
