Minimalist looks from Narciso Rodriguez's spring 2011 collection

Click on the link below.  Article mentions Carolyn. It came out 9/15/10 at 10:00 AM
"Narciso Rodriguez went back to his minimalist roots — the last looks were reminiscent of that Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy wedding dress that made the world swoon".

Can’t afford Prada? What about

Can’t afford Prada? What about I found this coat on Overstock for only $71.99. Shipping is $2.95. Come on ladies, if we work together, maybe we can find the RED PRADA COAT LOOK-A-LIKE. You know which one I mean. *wink wink*

Check out this article on camel coats for the season. They are back and the article mentions Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and when she wore that classic Prada camel coat that we ALL wish we could get our hands on.

It also briefly mentions Jacquline Kennedy and her camel coat that she wore on night of John F Kennedy's presidential inauguration in 1961.

This is the time of year when all the Carolyn fans get to follow her minimalist look. Carolyn, even on the hottest of summer days almost always covered up. In the cooler months, she dressed her best in white button downs, blazers, jeans, and of course her countless 'to die for' coats that will always stand the test of time.

John and Carolyn have huge fight in Park

On Feb. of 1996, John and Carolyn had a fight in Central Park and it was so heated, he ripped her engagement ring off her finger. In the Pictures, you can see John gave her ring back and they hugged, made up and walked home. They had no idea that this small moment would be captured by paparazzi taking their picture and video taping them. Most couples have heated fights, but can you imagine it being all over then news for your family and friends to see? Posted below is Richard Blow's account of the fight from the perspective of a George employee (the magazine John co-founded). I have also posted pictures and links to 2 videos. As far as I know, nobody truly knows what they are fighting about. If you know, please feel free to comment. Also, you can see Carolyn is smoking in one of the last pictures. It's said she walked up to a stranger on the street and either asked for a cigarette or a match to light her cigarette. This is a rare picture because like Jackie Kennedy, she would never be photographed smoking, but would smoke in private or when cameras were not around.
