Sibling rivalry is as old as, well the Bible – but sibling style-ary is another matter. The correct definition of this term is famous siblings who share a timeless sense of style. Let’s start with Lee Radzwill and Jackie Kennedy Onasis (in the pictures above and to the left, she is on the left and Jackie is on the right), since the movie Jackie is currently in the theaters. For those of you who don’t know her, she is the sister of Jackie Kennedy Onasis (the wife of John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States).
Those two were style mavens of their day. Truth be told, while Jackie has gone to glory, Lee is still holding it down. Both sisters provided the world with eternal eye candy. When you look at their pictures you feel inspired to wear whatever they have on.
Jackie taught us to consult those who at most knowledgeable about fashion to help you accent your look. Her style guru was Diana Vreeland, the then editor of Vogue.
On the other hand, Lee was about simple, low-key things and a great respect for line and beauty. Her personal style had to do with reducing rather than adding and she exudes strength, independence and a lack of concern for what others think. Here are some Lee looks. Fabulous by all standards.
Lessons learned from this pair:
- To be in the know, consult those who know.
- Less is more.
And the beat goes on…tune in next month for the Beyoncé – Solange sibling style-ary story. #siblingstylery
