A Trip to India

All of the photos of Reese Witherspoon from Water for Elephants have been reminding me of Jackie Kennedy.  In March 1962, Jackie and her sister Lee Radziwill traveled to India and Pakistan on what was billed as a "goodwill tour." They too rode elephants and even a camel but it was very carefully planned outfits designed by Oleg Cassini that stole the spotlight.  Jackie chose colors that were perfect for each country she visited and pastels made up most of her dresses for this trip including pink.  As Diana Vreeland once famously said, "pink is the navy blue of India."
