Steven L. Brawley

 

 

Steven L. Brawley is a serious Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis fan and historian. Since childhood, Steve has been an ardent student of history and pop culture.

Today, Steve is a sought after consultant and lecturer. He has an extensive pop culture memorabilia collection featuring rare political, White House and Jackie related items.

In 2002 Steve was selected as a keynote speaker and event consultant to commemorate Jackie's 50th class reunion at her alma mater - The George Washington University in Washington, DC.

In 2003, he launched pinkpillbox.com - a web-based magazine that salutes Jackie- inspired style. He is often consulted by those writing Jackie-related books and by magazines such as Vanity Fair doing Jackie features.

The hallmark of the website is the true story of Jackie's iconic pink suit, most often inaccurately attributed only to Chanel.

Steve also keeps up with the former, and the current, First Ladies.

Steve's news updates can be found via facebook (www.pinkpillbox.com)
