Jackie Kennedy Was A True Style Icon – But Her Shoes Hid An Intimate Secret

Jackie Kennedy is renowned by some for being the most glamorous First Lady in U.S. history. But her effortless sense of style could also be practical, too – especially when it came to her array of shoes. Here’s a look at how the fashion icon used her footwear to hide an intimate secret.

Born in Southampton, New York, in 1929 to a socialite mother and stockbroker father, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier graduated from George Washington University with a French literature degree. During her studies she also became something of a socialite herself, and she acquired a junior editorship at Vogue magazine. She was later given a job as a photojournalist at the Washington Times-Herald.
