Jackie Kennedy Insider Dishes On The Former First Lady's 'Dazzling' Closet Contents

When it comes to grace, class and fashion sense, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis set the bar pretty high for first ladies. A young woman who worked as a live-in assistance for 'Jackie O' back in the 1970s has written a new memoir about her experiences. The book is being released next month, but she gave People a taste this week.

Kathy McKeon was only 19 years old and a recent immigrant from Ireland when she landed a job working for the Kennedys. For the next 13 years, she was devoted to Jackie, who she refers to as 'Madam', and the two apparently became close.

McKeon remembers Madam's amazing wardrobe. “The bedroom walk-in closet was jam-packed with Madam’s everyday clothing, all arranged according to color,” McKeon writes. “I had never seen such a dazzling selection of shoes! London-look boots, pumps in every color, spotless sneakers for morning jogs around the reservoir.”

McKeon reveals that Mrs. Kennedy did have a slight flaw, but no one would ever have noticed. One of her legs was a little shorter than the other. “More intriguing to me was the quarter-inch lift affixed to one heel on each pair of shoes, apparently meant to compensate for one leg being slightly shorter than the other. No one would have ever guessed,” the former live-in assistant recalls.

McKeon worked for Jackie just after John F. Kennedy's assassination, from 1964 and 1977. Now 72, the grandmother of six remembers her former employer very fondly. “I was just a girl when Jackie Kennedy made me part of the family and I lived through so much with all of them,” she wrote. “My grandchildren are learning about that era in school now, and my story is a chance to let them experience the humanity behind the history, as I once did.”

The book, 'Jackie’s Girl: My Life with the Kennedy Family', is sure to offer some new insights from a different perspective from Jackie O fans.
