At a formal banquet given by Prime Minister Nehru, Jackie wore a classic cut sheath gown done in a pearlescent white silk peau d’ange. The floor-length form-fitting column narrowed to the body and featured a squared  neckline. The pinafore back was dramatic, with a sweeping panel forming a train. The wide shoulder straps were accented with bows, and she accessorised the gown by wearing her signature long white kid gloves. Jackie loved this dress because it had form and function; the panel could be moved aside as she was seated, and when she was standing or moving the panel swept behind her, regal and uncreased. c. 1962.
