The film, also starring Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, Max Casella and Billy Crudup, chronicles the days after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, focusing on his widow’s Life magazine interview with journalist Theodore H. White at Hyannis Port, Mass. Of course, telling the story of the late FLOTUS wouldn’t be complete without looking at her iconic wardrobe. To bring Jackie’s famous sense of style to the big screen, Larrain enlisted French costume designer Madeline Fontaine to re-create the famous red wool Dior, as well as the pink Chanel suit with navy trim collar and matching pillbox hat that Jackie wore on the day of her husband’s assassination.
Here, Fontaine, best known for her work on Yves Saint Laurent (2014) and Amélie (2001), chats with The Hollywood Reporter about the pressures of re-creating Jackie’s iconic style and her thoughts on designers refusing to dress future first lady Melania Trump.
