Today marks the 15th anniversary of the tragic passing of John F. Kennedy Jr. and his wife Carolyn Bessette. Bessette won our heart with her truly effortless and minimal style. The PR maven knew the true power of a simple turtleneck or white button-down shirt. The power couple of the nineties were modern American royalty. Both astoundingly attractive and wonderfully smitten with each other, they were written about and commented on almost daily in gossip columns and tabloids. Quintessentially American and breathtakingly stylish, people the world over desperately sought their style. This splendidly glamorous great love story existed in private jets and White House gala dinners, daring adventures and then, quite catastrophically, ended suddenly and tragically.
Their love story was not a long one — just a handful of beautiful years spent together — but there is no denying how deeply they loved one another.
Take a look at some of the couple’s chicest moments laughing, kissing or even just gazing into one another’s eyes — there is not a slightest bit of doubt that the great love story of this adventurous, elegant, and completely smitten couple will be remembered fondly for a many years to come.
