Natalie Portman plays Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in a new biopic called Jackie, and she perfectly channels the stylish first lady. The biopic follows Jackie Kennedy's attempts to pick up the pieces of her life following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

On Wednesday of this week, the first photo of Natalie Portman as Jackie O was released. Jackie Kennedy wore a similar red suit in a photo taken at the White House in 1961.

Natalie Portman follows a long line of actresses who have portrayed Jackie O. Katie Holmes, Minka Kelly, Roma Downey, and Jill Hennessy are just a few of them. None of them have been a dead ringer like Natalie Portman, however.

Jackie is directed by Pablo Larrain. In addition to Natalie Portman it stars Peter Sarsgaard as Robert Kennedy. Greta Gerwig plays one of Kennedy's aides.

Presently filming in Paris, IMDb reports Jackie is scheduled for release some time in 2017.

Do you agree that Natalie Portman is a Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis doppelganger?
