Betty Ford's Distinctive Style

Betty Ford died on Friday, and while most obits are focussing on her life as a First Lady/ feminist/founder of the most famous rehab clinic in the world, we think her sense of style deserves a nod, too. Pretty much everyone ignores the fashion of first ladies between Onassis and Obama, and it's just not right. So we've rounded up our favorite Betty Ford looks, and hope you can cull some inspiration.
