Onassis devoted most of her time to plan social events that were to be at the White House as well as other state properties. Frequently she could invite poets, writers, artists, musicians and scientists so that they could mingle with diplomats, statesmen and politicians, Molly Driscoll, (2011). She as well started to let guests at the White House drink cocktails, in an attempt to give the mansion a more relaxed feeling. She used French-born American fashion designer and Kennedy family friend Oleg Cassini in the fall of 1960 in creating for her an original wardrobe for her as First Lady. Cassini could dress the First Lady several of her most iconic ensembles, this included her Inaugural gala gown and Inauguration Day fawn and most of her outfit for her visit to India, Pakistan and Europe. She brought up "Jackie" look, "overnight success around the world," was her clean suits with a skirt hem down to middle of the knee, three-quarter sleeves on notch-collar jackets, sleeveless a line dresses, famous pillbox hats, low-heel pumps and above-the-elbow gloves, (Thomson Gale, 2012). Despite having Cassini as her primary designer, she as well wore ensembles by French fashion legends like Chanel, Givenchy, and Dior. Compared to any other First Lady her style was copied by a large segment of young women and commercial manufacturer.
Onassis proved to be very popular among international dignitaries, and the reasons could be her skill at entertaining. Prior to her visit to France, a television special was shot in French house having First Lady on the White House lawn. In this visit, the public was really impressed with her ability to speak fluent French, and also her extensive knowledge of French history. Jacqueline learnt her French language through a prominent Puerto Rican educator "Maria Teresa Babin Cortes."
While attending the urging of John Kenneth Galbraith, U.S. Ambassador to India, she also toured Pakistan where she took her sister (Lee Radziwill) along with her. This became an amply documented in photojournalism of the time and in Galbraith's journals and memoirs. During this time Galbraith who was an ambassador noted a considerable disjunction between Onassis' widely-noted concern with clothes and frivolity and her considerable intellect in terms of her personal acquaintance.
When she was in Karachi, Pakistan, she got an opportunity of riding a camel with her sister. The First Lady was presented with a much-photographed horse, Sadar, a word from Urdu in referring to a "leader" by Pakistani President Ayub Khan, in Lahore, Pakistan. Consequently the gift became widely misattributed to the king of Saudi Arabia, this included various recollection of the Onassis years in White House by President Kennedy's friend Benjamin Bradlee who was a journalist and an editor, (Jone Johnson Lewis, 2012) .

After Onassis left the White House, she changed her style of dressing dramatically. Her new looks turned to be wide-leg pantsuits, large lapel jackets, gypsy skirts, silk Hermes head scarves and large, round, dark sunglasses. Frequently she wore brighter colors and patterns and even started to wear jeans in public. It was in form of beltless, white jeans with a black turtleneck, never tucked in, but put down over the hips, which became a fashion trend that she set.

Terminal Market Environmental Analysis There are several factors in the external environment that will affect the Reading Terminal Market. The first is competition. The Reading Terminal Market holds its unique position in part because of its central location in the city -- there are no equivalent markets anywhere in the area of downtown Philadelphia. Thus, Reading Terminal has a unique geographic position and this is a positive external factor. Any competing
He has the well-earned reputation of being the "a hawk's hawk in the Bush administration" (Corn, 2005). For instance, when the Bush administration did not get UN's backing for its war in Iraq, Bolton observed that was "further evidence to many why nothing should be paid to the UN system." (Ibid.) Officials who have worked under him, invariably describe Bolton as a bully. At his confirmation hearings in the Senate,
