THE PRESIDENTIAL COUPLE IN HARPER'S BAZAAR, 1961

Due to Diana Vreeland's close relationship with Jackie Kennedy, Harper's Bazaar published the first picture of the presidential couple in 1961. 

Jackie Kennedy wrote to DV:
"Dear Diana, 
Everyone is wondering why we chose Harper's Bazaar and they invent a million reasons. And no one says the real one, which is you".
