1985 - Okay - Fabulous Dress for the occasion, appropriate for her age and body type. The quality of beading is superb , the long line is good and she covered up her arms. And she can wear white well. A+ less a half grade for the bad publicity A-.

A First Lady A Day: Nancy
Well. Certainly a gal who loved her clothes. She generally dressed well for her figure, although more Hollywood than most First Ladies or political figures’ wives, that is for sure. She did love her red and her white.
That said - let’s do The Dresses.
Okay, she went for the white beaded column look both times. Both dresses are by James Galanos. She didn’t pay for the first one - it was a ‘loaner’ and Galanos donated it to the Smithsonian. The second time, she took a lot of grief for the cost of the wardrobe. Which is issue number one with the gown. How much it cost should not become a political issue. There she did not choose well.
