Comtesse de Ribes, The First Fashionista
This week Comtesse Jacqueline de Ribes, the legendary Parisian socialite, designer, and fashion collector,was decorated by French President Sarkozy, as a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor at the Elysée Palace.
Apparently she wore an outfit of her own design to the celebratory party afterwards. Since the Comtesse's label was both launched and closed within the 80s, this just goes to show that if you can still look fabulous in an ensemble that dates back thirty years, it really is worth hanging on to all those high-fashion looks that might seem dated from one season to the next nowadays, but are sure to stand the test of time in the future.
