Katie Holmes Becomes Jackie Kennedy

In Toronto on Friday (Aug. 20), actress Katie Holmes donned the famous pink suit of Jackie Kennedy for the filming of The History Channel’s The Kennedys.

On Nov. 22, 1963 Jackie Kennedy shockingly kept her famous pink suit on, blood-stained, after the President was shot and while Lyndon Johnson was sworn in as the new President.

“I feel really lucky to be playing her,” Holmes told UsMagazine.com of the part last month. “She not only had great style, but she [was] an artist [and] a writer. She was an illustrator. She was an editor,” added the wife of Tom Cruise and mom to daughter Suri, 4.

The History Channel plans to show the eight-hour miniseries next year.
