The New York native, who was famously married to President John F. Kennedy until his death in 1963, moved women away from rigid, ladylike dressing onto a more relaxed, glamorous look that included wide-leg trousers, oversized sunglasses and espadrilles.

Sleek shifts, pillbox hats and a natural approach to make-up that played up the eyes also made up her much-admired wardrobe.

Some of the designers she favoured included Coco Chanel, Givenchy and Christian Dior.
