If you had to name America’s sweetheart, Taylor Swift would probably be high up on the list. And now that she’s dating a Kennedy, we can’t help but draw comparisons between T. Swift and our favorite First Lady, Jackie O. Yes, we know Taylor and Conor Kennedy aren’t getting married any time soon. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t thought about it! Here’s why we think Tay could very well be the next Jackie O (even if she and Conor never get hitched).
Jackie was skilled at entertaining, and Taylor has a diplomatic streak that would help with all those fancy state dinners. She’s known for making everyone feel comfortable, even when she probably isn’t. Remember when Kanye West interrupted her win at the VMAs back in 2009? She was pleasant about the experience even in the media fire afterwards.
This one’s easy. Her public (America!) loves her.
As Ms. Swift has grown up, she’s morphed from girl-next-door to polished lady. It’s a form of elegance that can’t be taught, and very few have it down pat. An added bonus? Taylor knows how to deal with the onslaught of press, paparazzi, and photos that comes with being American royalty, while looking graceful the entire time.
Jackie O is the epitome of class. And for the most part, Taylor is too (albeit, in a slightly goofier, more adorable way). Have you ever heard either of them swear? Nope!
Both born-and-raised in the U.S. of A., Jackie and Taylor are wholesome and radiant in the vein of apple pie and small town Fourth of July parades. Taylor is even a country singer. What’s more American than that?
And lastly (in case you couldn’t guess from these photos) — her style! Tay’s been looking rather preppy-stylish lately, in dainty, ladylike frocks that harken the eternal fashion icon. We won’t call Taylor a style icon yet, but she’s certainly headed in that direction. Plus, they’ve both got a thing for big, eye-obscuring sunglasses, clean lines, and nautical stripes.
