  • “A book that is as alluring and intriguing as its subject, Once Upon a Time is a marvelous read. We all ‘know’ Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, but we don’t really know her. Now, with Beller’s book, this charismatic, iconic woman becomes real, which makes her tragedy that much more painful. This is a book you will gobble up.” (Susan OrleanNew York Times bestselling author of The Library Book and The Orchid Thief)
  • “Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy’s Yohji Yamamoto wraps and Calvin Klein suits told us more about the insatiable appetites of a voracious public than they revealed about the woman who wore them. But now, she is unveiled as never before: the woman who was so much more than a fashion icon and a famous wife.” (Robin Givhan, Pulitzer Prize winning fashion journalist and author)

Flaptekst van de biografie van Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy

A quarter of a century after the plane crash that claimed the lives of John F. Kennedy Jr., his wife Carolyn, and her sister Lauren, the magnitude of this tragedy remains fresh. Yet, Carolyn is still an enigmatic figure, a woman whose short life in the spotlight was besieged with misogyny and cruelty.

Amidst today’s cultural reckoning about the way our media treats women, Elizabeth Beller explores the real person behind the tabloid headlines and media frenzy. When she began dating America’s prince, Carolyn was increasingly thrust into an overwhelming spotlight filled with relentless paparazzi who reacted to her reserve with a campaign of harassment and vilification.

To this day, she is still depicted as a privileged princess—icy, vapid, and drug-addicted. She has even been accused of being responsible for their untimely death, allegedly delaying take-off until she finished her pedicure. But now, she is revealed as never before.

A fiercely independent woman devoted to her adopted city and career, Carolyn relied on her impeccable eye and drive to fly up the ranks at Calvin Klein in the glossy, high-stakes fashion world of the 1990s. When Carolyn met her future husband, John was immediately drawn to her strong-willed personality, effortless charm, and high intelligence. Their relationship would change her life and catapult her to dizzying fame, but it was her vibrant life before their marriage and then hidden afterwards, that is truly fascinating.

Based on in-depth research and exclusive interviews with friends, family members, teachers, roommates, and colleagues, and featuring never-before-seen family photos, this comprehensive biography reveals a multi-faceted woman worthy of our attention regardless of her husband and untimely death.
