Jacqueline Kennedy (l.) and Katie Holmes (r.) in the History Channel's 'The Kennedys.'

Forget the fact that she was married to the President, Jackie Kennedy had great style and that seems to be one of the main reasons Hollywood's First Lady loves playing her.

Katie Holmes can't stop gushing about the wardrobe belonging to the former First Lady, whom she plays in The History Channel's upcoming miniseries "The Kennedys."

"Her clothes were magnificent," Tom Cruise's other half told UsMagazine.com at the premiere of her new film, "The Extra Man."

"We have these wonderful seamstresses who are creating beautiful dresses that are obviously replicas of real things she wore.”

According to Holmes, her old friend Giorgio Armani, for whom she created a clothing line two years ago, designed two of the dresses she wears in the film.

"Her great style was both appropriate for every event that she went to and also classic, and also things that were wearable," Holmes told Usmagazine.com

And the actress appears to be keeping her figure in check for the role. According to her "Extra Man," director, she often brought "the best" cookies to the set of her last film but didn't indulge much herself.

"They were these extremely fattening chocolate chip cookies that she probably just took a nibble of," Shari Springer Berman told People.com.

Despite focusing on Kennedy's style, however, Holmes reminded UsMagazine.com that the President's wife was also "an artist, a writer, an illustrator and an editor."

The "Batman Begins” star said she explores similar artistic outlets with her family.

"We're always sort of creating new things, whether it's a party or, you know, a script or a movie," she told People.com. "We try to have a very creative household."
