A stunning transformation. On location in Maryland, Natalie Portman is the latest actress to bring Jackie Kennedy to the screen for the upcoming eponymous biopic. And of course, any movie about the former first lady would not be complete without her iconic pink tweed suit.
Re-creating the tragic morning of November 22, 1963 — the day John F. Kennedy was shot — Portman, 34, looked just like Jackie descending the steps of a plane in a line-by-line copy of the first lady’s skirt suit.
Portman’s separates are almost identical to Jackie’s originals, from their bubblegum hue to the jacket’s double-breasted cut with gold buttons, to the three-quarter-length sleeves and navy accents. To complete the ensemble, Portman also wore the first lady’s pillbox hat and short white gloves.
Of course, Portman isn’t the first actress to don the suit in an effort to recreate history. Both Katie Holmes and Ginnifer Goodwin slipped into the pink separates in The Kennedys and Killing Kennedy, respectively.
The actual suit has been preserved with the bloodstains and sits in the National Archives. It was sent with specific instructions not to display the clothing until 100 years after the assassination.
