Posted: Updated:

In tribute to one of our favorite First Ladies -- and our ultimate style icon -- on what would have been her 84th birthday, we bring you this video of Jackie Kennedy's White House tour. Originally broadcast in 1962, the program became the most widely-viewed documentary at the time, with hundreds of millions tuning in. The tour also revealed Kennedy's significant redecorating and restoration efforts, which brought historic antiques and decor back to the White House. What do you think of her efforts?
