    In March of 1962, the first lady embarked to Indian on a tour of goodwill in order to improve relations between our two nations; and she did it all in heels! Note the mid-arm length gloves, matching heels and multi-strand pearl necklace- all staples of both the first lady and American fashion at the time.

    Pictured here meeting with Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, Jacqueline served as not only an goodwill ambassador to the President, but to the nation as well. She is the epitome of early 60s fashion here- complete with a matching dress and hat, as well as her pearls. The stark contrast between the two cultures was apparent upon her arrival, but Jackie made a point to reflect both her respect and admiration for the Indian culture through dress.

    While visiting New Dehli, Jacqueline is spotted in a knee length coat and dress ensemble, while sporting a matching wide brimmed hat of the period, as well as matching white accessories. A hat and pair of matching gloves have become something of a signature, and we constantly encourage anyone to "Jacqueline Kennedy" any outfit.

    While attending a reception in her honor as the U.S. Embassy in New Dehli, the first last opts for an early 60s formal satin trapeze style coat and matching dress. A structured, bouffant style up-d0 was just becoming popular within American fashion and many think that Jackie may have been responsible for the shift in hairstyles in the early 1960s.

    Pictured in from the Taj Mahal, Jackie worked closely with her personal designer Oleg Cassini to create a variety of lightweight dresses that reflected the culture and color of India. Many of the prints the first lady sported on this adventure were, at the time, considered too ethnic or loud for 1960s America. It wasn't until years later did such bold prints begin to define 60s fashion.

    Pictured in a vibrant pink floral print, the first lady participates in both local custom and dress. The Rajasthani mark on her forehead is symbol of luck and respect. Note the coordinated headband, gals. Someone find us that immediately!

    And in her most famous look from the trip, a coral colored duchess satin dress became an international symbol of the first lady's trip to a foreign sovereignty. So much so that it even became a collectible doll commemorating Jackie!

    So what have we learned, darlings? That matching one's wardrobe to one's vacation is more important than you think.  Take a peek below at a few hand-picked pieces for our lady-like dream trip to India and we'll book the plane tickets!

    The "Mad Men" star was spotted last week emulating her inner secretary and we adored the whole look. From hair to hem, we thought it was sharp, with just a hint of retro! You gals, however, didn't quite agree. Since we didn't get our usually vocal darlings to participate, we decided it would be fun to see what her fellow Mad Women might think about the situation. Hit it, ladies!
