Algeria State Visit 1962



By Steve Brawley

Pink was the "new black" for sure during the fall of 1962. Jackie again wore the pink suit - this time on October 15 during the state arrival ceremony for the Prime Minister of Algeria.

She would wear it a few days later during a visit by another head of state - the Maharaja of Jaipur.

In these charming pictures, she makes sure that John Jr. has a good view of the event. He loved all of the military goings on.

Jackie and President Kennedy created the South Lawn arrival ceremonies for heads of state during their administration.

Photos by Corbis and JFK Library (Cecil Stoughton). An 8mm movie of the event also exist (link and screen shot below)
