There are few looks more iconic than Jackie Kennedy's pink suit and matching pillbox hat.
And while many of us may think we're pretty familiar with the outfit the former first lady wore on the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated on Nov. 22, 1963, the Today show has unveiled some pretty surprising facts about the historic suit 50 years after that tragic day in Dallas.
Here's what we learned:
1. Dress For Less: Though many think the boucle suit was a Chanel design, it was, in fact, a knockoff of sorts. To avoid political criticism and embrace a made-in-the-USA look, the first lady had an exact replica of the French fashion house's suit made stateside from authentic Chanel fabric.
