first lady makeups: Jacqueline Kennedy

Grey Gardens (2009): This movie features a brief appearance by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (Jeanne Tripplehorn) when she visits her eccentric aunt and cousin. Linda Dowds was the makeup department head.

Thirteen Days (2000): This movie tells how President John F Kennedy handled the two-week Cuban missile crisis in October of 1962 with a little help from Kevin Costner. I guess almost everybody who is old enough can remember the tension. Jacqueline Kennedy (Stephanie Romanov) had a very minor role: one scene hassling Kevin Costner about a party invitation list just before the crisis erupted is all I recall. Francisco X Pérez was the makeup department head; Matthew Mungle was the special makeup effects artist responsible for the prosthetic look-alike makeups: I don’t think either of them turned Stephanie into Jackie Kennedy but I don’t know who was responsible for this makeup.

A Woman Named Jackie (1991): This film starring Roma Downey as Jacqueline Kennedy spans Jacqueline’s life up to the late 1980s. Martha Preciado was key makeup artist; Brad Look was makeup artist.

Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (1981): After Charlie’s Angels Jaclyn Smith tried – and failed – to prove she could act by starring as Jacqueline Kennedy in this movie which covered Jacqueline’s life from her childhood up until JFK’s assassination in Dallas. I have no makeup credits for this movie; if anyone can help, please themakeupgallery.
