“Style is what makes you different; it’s your own stamp…” Jacqueline de Ribes

Visiting an exhibit could be viewed as stuffy or boring, but the costume exhibit at The Met in the Anna Wintour Center was awe-worthy. Jacqueline de Ribes’ “The Art of Style” showed ensembles and experiences that almost jumped off the mannequins. There were sketches beside her ensembles on mannequins and walls that changed with photos throughout her life- which of course were all glamorous. The aristocratic beauty collaborated her designs with Valentino Garavani and Cristian Dior, and she glided into balls and parties with a finesse that no one could be compared to.

Some of my favorite pieces on display included a silk kimono, and her style was effortless and chic. She embodied style and once said, “Elegance. It’s an attitude. A frame of mind.” Ribes was considered a “Queen” in the fashion realm that I love, and was considered among the best in the world of haute couture.
