The marriage between Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and John F. Kennedy Jr. has been documented countless times in the Fourth Estate—the highs, the lows and the very tumultuous lows. Twenty years after their tragic death, the pair continues to fascinate and land on best-dressed lists, again and again. Go ahead—try to find a bad photo of them. While their wedding day is exemplar of their incredible style—who could forget the bride in that simple yet stunning slip by Narcisco Rodriguez?—the two make our list because they radiated grace and effortless chic even in their most casual baseball-cap-wearing, day-to-day lives.
