Exactly 10 years ago today, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy died in a plane crash with her husband John F. Kennedy Jr. and sister Lauren off the coast of Martha's Vineyard.
Bessette graduated from Boston University and went on to work in PR at Calvin Klein. She married JFK Jr. in a private ceremony in Georgia on September 21, 1996. The pair frequently attended events together, and even ten years after their deaths, her style epitomizes a timeless aesthetic: all the outfits below could have easily been photographed in 2009. Were she still around, she'd be a regular fixture here on the Huffington Post Style section.
