BOSTON (AP) — A paper replica of the gown worn by Jacqueline Bouvier when she wed then-U.S. Sen. John F. Kennedy will be displayed in Boston to mark the 60th anniversary of their nuptials. The bride wore an ivory silk taffeta gown with a portrait neckline and bouffant skirt for the Sept. 12, 1953, event in Newport, R.I. The gown's original designer was Ann Lowe. The replica was created by Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave with collaboration from Rita Brown. Marshall Field's department store commissioned the replica in 2004, later donating it to the JFK Library and Museum. The replica will be displayed from Sept. 12 until Nov. 3 at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. The actual gown, now too fragile for display, was last featured in a 2003 exhibit.
