Nancy Reagan -- A First Lady's Style will illustrate the important roles
Mrs. Reagan played in the White House -- from hostess and ambassador, to
public servant and spokesperson, to loyal and caring wife -- by
exhibiting over 80 of her dresses, suits and gowns. The dresses
displayed span over fifty years -
beginning with her
dress and ending with the skirt suit she wore to President Reagan's
funeral in June of 2004.
This historic exhibit not only honors Mrs. Reagan, but also pays tribute
to the men and women who helped define her style. The exhibit will
display designs by Geoffrey Beene, Bill Blass, Valentino Garavani, James
Galanos, Carolina Herrera, Adolfo Sardina, Yves St. Laurent, Oscar de la
Renta, Jean Louis and Chanel.
