If the eternal style icon Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy were alive today {sigh}, there’s a likelihood she would be wearing this street style outfit: ALL black with a neutral bag, and — { gasp! } —  a splash of bright color to break it up.

Carolyn died in a plane crash over the ocean near Martha's Vineyard with her husband, John F. Kennedy, Jr., and her sister Lauren Bessette,  in July 1999.

The Jean-Paul Gaultier clamshell necklace Carolyn wore to the 1999 Correspondents’ Dinner has become so singularly iconic that producers of the 2012 TBS TV movie “America’s Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story,” tried to recreate it (below) for Portia de Rossi. As fate would have it, Portia first met Carolyn at the 1999 dinner.naTVAMERICASPRINCE__t640
