Jackie Kennedy was my first style icon. I still remember pouring over picture books and biographies of her when I was barely a teenager, wanting not just to emulate her style but also that certain je ne sais quoi that I found so appealing. Through the years, I’ve never grown tired of looking at her iconic photographs- her wedding, walking along the Potomac, hosting dinner parties, with her children- but it was rare to see new images. So I was quite excited to this morning to find out that LIFE.com has released 20 exclusive never-before-published Jackie Kennedy photos in celebration of her and JFK’s wedding anniversary (Sept 12).
The photos of Jackie were collected through Life Magazine’s coverage during the couple’s 10 years together. It can be accessed directly at LIFE.com.
