She’s certainly not the first star to emulate Jackie Kennedy, but Natalie Portman will make you look twice in the debut peek at her title role in the upcoming biopic Jackie.

The photo, which was released by Deadline, features the Oscar winner, 34, dressed in a cherry red suit with pearls and wearing Kennedy’s signature bouffant. 

The film is directed by Pablo Larrain and costars Peter Sarsgaard as Robert Kennedy and Greta Gerwig in an unannounced role. It will follow Jackie in the days after her husband John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963.

Portman joins legions of other stars who have played the fashion-forward first lady, including Katie Holmes, Ginnifer Goodwin and Minka Kelly.

Jackie is set to be released in 2017. Tell Us: What do you think of Natalie Portman as Jackie Kennedy?
