The First Lady wore this ensemble when she and President Kennedy disembarked from "Air Force One" at Mexico City's airport during her State Visit to Mexico on June 29, 1962. Twenty-one guns saluted as President Adolfo Lopez Mateos and his wife (joined by a crowd of twenty-five thousand shouting "Arriba Kennedy! Arriba Jacquelina!") welcomed them to the country where they had honeymooned almost nine years earlier.
