Nancy Reagan - A First Lady's Style - Part 1 Photos

Here is the first installment of photos from the exhibit on Nancy Reagan's style. The Reagan Presidential Library and Museum does not allow flash photography, so please excuse the yellow tones in the photos. In order to fully appreciate the exquisite detail and richly textured fabrics of the garments, I highly recommend visiting the museum in person. While you're there, you can also board Air Force One, see a replica of the Oval Office, speak with well-informed museum staff, watch a variety of short informational videos, have a huge sandwich at the cafe, and visit the burial site of President Reagan. Just beware of the rattlesnakes that supposedly lurk in the hillsides around the museum!
