Breathtaking late 1970's ruby-red goddess gown from the talented Countess Jacqueline de Ribes. A muse to Haute Couture designers, de Ribes had at her disposal their drapers, cutters, and fitters in acknowledgment of their esteem for her taste and originality. Ultimately, she used this experience to create her own successful design business, which she directed until 1995. This Jacqueline de Ribes gown is just a masterpiece and is a rarity as well. For me this is the perfect example of her work and one of the best pieces I have seen available. This is mainly due to that chic cut that has a Halston feel to it. The garment is fashioned in high-quality "light as a feather" crepe chiffon silk. There is a seductive low plunge satin ribbon mock-halter that flows into an angelic winged sleeve. This draping drawing attention to the bodice while skimming the hips effortlessly. Definitely feels like the type of garment Countess Jacqueline would have worn herself.
