Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

No individual in the zodiac has the power to become an icon in the way that a Leo does.  There’s something about the sign that allows them to command the attention of the public while redefining the role of celebrity, thereby establishing themselves as pop culture icons.

I know people talk about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis as if she was some “classic” example of American style.  However, she was exactly the opposite.  She redecorated the White House.  She enlisted high-profile fashion designers to recreate the role of First Lady so that she didn’t resemble a single President’s wife that came before her.  She wore big sunglasses and big hairdos.  Without resorting to shock value, she became an icon of American style so effortlessly that her style is now considered classic rather than controversial.

In fact, if there was a national holiday devoted to style, it would have to correspond to Jackie O’s birthday.  Only a Leo could get away with inspiring that sort of celebrity worship.  She’s an icon, indeed.
