more J.O.

I know, you're thinking, "More Jackie O? Really, Melanie?" But how can you resist... she really is that intriguing & chic. She was so ahead of her time... and everything she donned suited her figure & the occasion perfectly. She had such an impeccable sense of her own personal style... and it never looked like she attempted to try too hard. I could look at images of her for hours... {see here & here for more.}

Check out this write up from Habitually Chic:
Ron Galella was the original stalkerazzi and his most famous prey was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. He tormented her and even followed her to Capri. She obtained a restraining order against him. The New York Post at the time called it "the most co-dependent celeb-pap(arazzi) relationship ever." Without Ron Galella, we wouldn't have any of these most iconic images of Jackie O.
What's even amazing is that Ron Galella is still making headlines. HBO will air a documentary about the photographer this Monday, June 7th at 9:00pm entitled Smash His Camera which will also have an accompanying exhibition at Clic Gallery on Broome Street. "Smash His Camera" is apparently what Jackie said to her secret service agent after Ron got a little too close for comfort after a bike ride to through the Park with John Junior. So glad they smashed it after he got some good photos!
O my, its Friday... happy day!
