Kennedy connection continues as Taylor Swift channels Jackie O.

Taylor Swift isn't just dating a Kennedy, she's dressing like one, too. The country star, 22, is in a relationship with Conor Kennedy, the 18-year-old son of the late Mary Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Swift and Kennedy's romance bloomed this summer and has been well-documented. In Cape Cod, where Swift recently bought a home, the two were photographed taking sailing trips, and walks along the beach. All the while, it was impossible to not notice that Swift's style resembled another Kennedy icon -- Conor's great-aunt, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

The latest example comes from Swift's trip to Paris (she tweeted that she's there to shoot a music video). The oversized glasses, the retro bicycle and the early 1960s-inspired attire -- it's all very Jackie O.

If there's a member of the Kennedy family who has issues with Swift's adoration and emulation, they're keeping quiet. The overwhelming response to the 22-year-old singer becoming close with the family is overwhelmingly positive. "I love her, she's terrific. Huge fan," Rory Kennedy said at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards in September. Kennedy matriarch and Conor's grandmother Ethel said, "We should be so lucky," to have Swift become a part of the family."

The Kennedys are far more outspoken than Swift, however. When Glamour magazine asked about her relationship with Conor for their November issue, Swift said, "I don't talk about my personal life in great detail. I write about it in my songs, and I feel like you can share enough about your life in your music to let people know what you're going through."
