French aris­to­crat Jac­que­line de Ribes has charmed the fash­ion world over the years with her orig­i­nal­ity and pen­sive el­e­gance. In trib­ute, the Cos­tume In­sti­tute at the Metropoli­tan Mu­seum of Art’s ex­hi­bi­tion, ‘Jac­que­line de Ribes: The Art of Style,’ delves into the fash­ion icon’s per­sonal ar­chives, fea­tur­ing around 60 en­sem­bles of haute cou­ture and ready-towear dat­ing from 1959 to the present. Adding depth to the premise is de Ribes’s artis­tic ex­pres­sions, one be­ing the fancy dress cos­tumes she had of­ten made from her own gowns. Also fea­tured are pho­to­graphs and ephemera doc­u­ment­ing her tran­si­tion from a young girl play­ing dress-up to be­ing the epit­ome of style in the in­ter­na­tional fash­ion scene. From Nov 19, 2015 to Feb 21, 2016 at the Metropoli­tan Mu­seum of Art, New York City. www.met­mu­seum.org
