On the set of her new miniseries about The Kennedys, Mrs. Tom Cruise is dressed the same way the First Lady was on that fateful day in November 1963.

Katie Holmes channels her inner Jackie Kennedy right down to her quilted Chanel bag in a shot taken today on the Toronto set of the History Channel’s miniseries, The Kennedys. Judging by the pink suit she is wearing in the pic, she and Greg Kinnear — who plays President Kennedy — were shooting the couple’s arrival in Dallas on November 22, 1963, the day the President was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald.

Earlier this week, Katie shot the president’s funeral scenes and was seen hugging the toddler who plays young John Jr. Despite the somber subject matter, Katie says she has had fun playing the iconic first lady — mainly because of the clothes she’s gotten to wear. “I feel so lucky,” Katie says. “We have these wonderful seamstresses who are creating beautiful dresses that are obviously replicas of real things she wore.”

The eight-hour miniseries will air on the History Channel next year, and also stars Barry Pepper as Robert F. Kennedy and Tom Wilkinson as Joseph Kennedy Sr.
