Just days before the Sept. 12 anniversary of Jacqueline Bouvier marrying into the Kennedy clan in 1953, LIFE.com has unearthed a series of never-before-seen photos of the first lady of Camelot.
The stunning pictures range from a scene of the chaos of her wedding day to candid shots of Jackie during husband John F. Kennedy’s 1960 campaign and her state visits abroad as the wife of the leader of the free world. In one eerily prescient photo, she wears a pillbox hat as her husband waves to crowds in a convertible car.
To see the collection go to LIFE.com.
