    First Lady Jackie Kennedy was the center of a more classic look in the 1960s. The Jackie O look included simple lines, tailored suits, and big sunglasses. Fitted A-line dresses, pearls and pillbox hats were the norm for this extraordinary style icon.

    The TLC network is making a movie about some of the 800,000 condolence letters that were sent to the widow of former President John F. Kennedy after his 1963 assassination.

    "Letters to Jackie" will air this fall, as the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's killing approaches on Nov. 22.

    The film revisits the aftermath of the assassination to examine the former first lady's role in helping the nation through its grief as she suffered through her own.

    Twenty celebrities will read the letters, including Zooey Deschanel, Kirsten Dunst, Anne Hathaway, Mark Ruffalo, Betty White and Michelle Williams.
