Black Alaskine and silk taffeta gown, by Oleg Cassini, American, 1962. Worn by Jacqueline Kennedy for her audience with Pope John XXIII at the Vatican on March 11, 1962. Her selection of stiff, unyielding fabrics such as this silk and wool blend called Alaskine, lends an armorial quality to much of her clothing from this period.

Pedro Rodriguez beaded mini dress, 1960s. The densely packed clusters of pastel flowers have a lifelike 3-dimensional quality. They are rendered with seed beads in shades of pink, pale blue, yellow, and silver/gray. The abstract floral motif in delicate, feminine hues entwines itself around the wearer's body—subtle, yet alluring! We can see why Rodriguez' elaborately beaded evening wear was sought after.
