Jackie Kennedy, the woman who pioneered how future First Ladies should approach personal style, showed off her flair for fashion on a 1962 trip to India.

Photos from her trip with her sister Princess Lee Radziwill of Poland showcase her perennially elegant  and sophisticated sensibilities.

Aged 32, Kennedy travelled to India a year into her husband's administration. According to LIFE Magazine, she carried herself "magnificently" and was received by enthusiastic, "noisy" crowds.

In a LIFE article from the time, correspondent Anne Chamberlin remarked on Kennedy's exemplary outfit choices during the nine day excursion.

She "wore a perpetual grin and a dazzling collection of clothes that were both perfect and simple," the journalist wrote.
