THE MAK­ING OF AN ICON

S/ - - STYLE -

Count­ess Jac­que­line de Ribes, one of the most cel­e­brated fash­ion icons of the 20th cen­tury, is the fo­cus of the Cos­tume In­sti­tute’s sea­sonal ex­hi­bi­tion. Show­cas­ing 60 stun­ning wardrobe en­sem­bles from de Ribes’ per­sonal ar­chive, the ex­hibit ex­plores her life and how she cul­ti­vated her sense of style. It is this jour­ney that the ex­hibit’s cu­ra­tor, Harold Koda, de­scribes as a type of per­for­mance art in it­self. Jac­que­line de Ribes: The Art of Style runs Novem­ber 19, 2015–Fe­bru­ary 21, 2016 at the Metropoli­tan Mu­seum of Art’s Anna Win­tour Cos­tume Cen­ter in New York.
