Recently I visited one of my favorite peaceful places, The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Costume Institute headed by Anna Wintour has had insightful exhibitions into the fashion world such as Model as Muse, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty,on designers, models and muses. This winter the exhibition Jacqueline de Ribes: The Art of Style, showcased the aristocrats designer wardrobe and personal creations. Her collections consisted of both ready to wear and haute couture. Her life was just as impressive as her style. Designer and TV producer were some of the countess other titles. Her aristocratic influences, and appreciation of being designer muses are seen in this exhibition. The sense of self that comes through in this exhibition reminds people what fashion is supposed to be. It is your opportunity to be who ever you want to be. The exhibition Jaceline de Ribes: The Art of Style will be showcased until Feb 21, 2016.
