The Style Lesson Natalie Portman Learned by Playing Jackie Kennedy

Erin Fitzpatrick

By now you've probably heard that Natalie Portman plays Jackie Kennedy in the upcoming biopic Jackie. We've already gotten a peek at the gripping first trailer, in which Portman could pass as the late style icon's twin, and in a new interview with Marie Claire, Portman shed some light on what she learned about Kennedy through her experience portraying her on screen. 

"I recently played Jackie Kennedy, which gave me some insight into her life," Portman told the magazine. "She was criticized so much for her style—[then] the public became obsessed with her style. But she didn't try to bow to anyone's demands. She had confidence and became a style icon, just by being herself." We'd all be wise to heed this advice—originality and self-assurance can go a long way in the fashion world. After all, who better to emulate than the one and only Jackie Kennedy?
