Former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is laid bare in America’s Magazine.
Believe it or not, prior to the Trump Administration, it was extremely rare for the public to have access to nude photos of a First Lady. Granted, that’s just one of many standards that have changed since Trump took office, but still—it’s a significant one.
And sure, the public might not necessarily want access to nude photos of many of the women who have served as First Lady. But surely that wasn’t the case with former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who appeared in the buff in the August ’75 HUSTLER.
“For the first time in America, HUSTLER presents this nude profile of the world’s most eligible woman,” read “The Agony, Ecstasy & Nudity of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.” “Certainly she is the best-known woman, and perhaps even the wealthiest woman. After viewing and reading this feature, she will also be the most widely exposed, leaving nothing hidden from whomever will be her next loving husband.”
According to the story, the photos “were taken with a telescopic lens from a fishing boat off the island of Skorpios, the Onassis’ private Grecian retreat” and first appeared in the Italian men’s magazine Playmen. The article, which ran shortly after the death of Kennedy Onassis’ second husband, Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, sought not just to expose the former First Lady’s flesh, but her character as well.
