Fashion designer Oleg Cassini, March 17The magic of Camelot may have had something to do with Oleg Cassini, the designer who created Jacqueline Kennedy's graceful, elegant look. Cassini died on March 17 at age 92 in a Long Island, N.Y., hospital, said his wife, Marianne. Cassini created Jackie Kennedy's Inauguration Day outfit, a fawn-colored wool coat with a sable collar over a matching wool dress, with a pillbox hat from Halston. Try though they might, the work of imitators never quite compared.
