“Jacqueline is Parisian royalty—the essence of Parisian elegance,” says designer Jean Paul Gaultier, who, in 1999, dedicated an entire collection to de Ribes. “She is also one of the very few who could dress herself divinely but who also knew how to dress others.” From The Queen of Couture – Harper’s Bazaar, Sept. 16th 2015.
