"She is the pearl in the king of Poland's ear, the Queen of Sheba's tallow-dropped emerald, Diane de Poitier's crescent tiara, the Ring of Nibelungen. She is a castle in Bavaria, a tall, black swan, a royal blue orchid."Yves Saint Laurent
Don't you just wish someone would describe you that way?!
I saw an article about Jacqueline de Ribes from when she launched her namesake fashion line in 1983 with the title: From Riches to Rags. De Ribes fashion line was clearly a reflection of her own life. She knew clothes, knew grand parties in Paris and Venice and had long been a couture client when she decided to make her own "pret-couture".
"De Ribes clothes are frightfully glamorous, like her."

How to wear it? Wear it when you yourself are feeling frightfully glamorous (which we all need to feel sometimes : ) for a cocktail party.
