For example, after all I've read about Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis, I knew very little about Ethel Skakel Kennedy and even less about Joan Bennett Kennedy. This is book was a great read, and an interesting look at three women who might never have touched each others lives had they not married brothers.
Forever Young is written by a close friend of JFK Jr. Its really a collection of memories, and like every book written about both JFK and his son, the reader wishes for a a different ending.
Reading about JFK Jr. got me thinking about what would be had he not died. The author of Forever Young indicates that he planned to run for the U.S. Senate seat that was ultimately won by Hillary Clinton. He also said the John and Carolyn were hoping to start a family. Oh, how fascinating it would have been to see the story of John and Carolyn unfold! To have watched their family grow and John define himself as a man apart from the Kennedy mystique. Reading about them is torture really. Just as I feel like I can't get enough of Jackie, Jack, John Jr. and Carloyn, the tragic end always make me so sad. On their wedding day, September 21, 1996. Carolyn wore a dress made by her dear friend Narcisco Rodriguez.
Obviously Carolyn's style was impeccable and classic. She surely would have remained a style icon of our times. One comment that is often made about her style is that her clothes in the mid-nineties would still be stylish in 2010. Another example that classic is never "out".
