Early life[edit]

She was born 1929 in Paris as Jacqueline Bonnin de La Bonninière de Beaumont. Her parents were Jean de Beaumont, comte Bonnin de la Bonninière de Beaumont (1904–2002), and his wife Paule de Rivaud de La Raffinière (1908–1999). She grew up in an atmosphere of French aristocratic wealth and elegance. One of her famous relatives was her uncle Étienne de Beaumont, comte Bonnin de la Bonninière de Beaumont (1883–1956). Since childhood, Jacqueline de Ribes has developed her own imagination, creativity, inventing a world of beauty. Since she could, Jacqueline de Ribes has continued to put her talent and energy for promoting culture and French elegance. Through her education and aristocratic environment from which it originated, thanks to her style, wit and knowledge of international political and artistic circles, she has inspired around her a favorable climate for intellectual exchange and creation.[8]

At nine years old, Jacqueline de Ribes wrote her first play, "The Two orphan". She’s also made the costumes and sets. She played with her brother and sister in one of the family properties, the castle of La Chataigneraie[9] on the hill of Saint Cloud, in around one hundred acres overlooking to Paris. This performance took place in front of fifty people (family and staff). At thirteen years old, then Jacqueline de Ribes rises to the institution of “Notre-Dame des Oiseaux”, near Versailles, she was responsible for school performances, including plays. Here as well, she realized the sets and costumes, she owed more than ever express her creative instinct, due to the War restrictions, many of the sumptuous costumes were in fact in paper.

In February 1948, she married Édouard de Ribes, vicomte de Ribes (1923–2013), a rich and successful banker, who subsequently became comte de Ribes, and Officer of the Legion of Honour,[10] Croix de guerre 1939-1945.[11] They have two children, a daughter Elisabeth (born 17 February 1949)[1] and a son vicomte Jean de Ribes (born 4 August 1952).[1] Her daughter married Frank Van der Kemp,[1] son of Gérald Van der Kemp (1912–2002). Their daughter Alix Van der Kemp married Count Pierre de la Rochefoucauld at Château de Versainville in Normandy in 2004.[12]

Life in fashion and society[edit]

By the age of 25, she was appearing on the lists of best-dressed women, having consistently worn haute couture clothing all her life.[13] She was consistently named to the International Best Dressed List. She was one of the guests who attended Carlos de Beistegui famous "Le Bal oriental" in 1951, Alexis von Rosenberg, Baron de Redé famous "Bal des Têtes" in 1957 and the "Oriental bal" in 1969, both at the Hôtel Lambert. She was also invited to Truman Capote's "Black and White Ball" in 1966.

Jacqueline de Ribes is a model, a aesthetic reference[14][15] because she was able to take the teaching experiences with the greatest aesthetes of the previous generation encountered during her life. As her uncle Etienne de Beaumont, Charles de Beistegui, Luchino Visconti, Emilio Pucci and Yves Saint Laurent, all recognized in her a spirit, a humor, a flame and exceptional creativity.[16] They shared the same quest for beauty and necessity of creation.[17]

She has been the muse of many designers such as Valentino,Guy Laroche and mainly Yves Saint Laurent .

Although she was interested in designing [18] her upbringing did not encourage women of her class to work. So her longing to have a salon of her own was not fulfilled until she was well into her fifties. her architectural studies, her aesthetic sense and sensitivity, her artists attendance stimulate her creative impulse. In 1982, supported by her friends designers Valentino, Ungaro and especially Yves Saint Laurent, who intends to sponsor her, she decided to create her own fashion house, call "jacqueline de Ribes".[19] Her first collection was shown in Paris and New York in 1983.[20] Her aura of discreet grandeur and innate sense of good taste ensured that the gowns she designed were greatly admired. She was, of course, the soul of the house Jacqueline de Ribes during the twelve years of her existence, but also a real entrepreneur whose skills enable her to win the Rodeo Drive Award, awarded to Los Angeles in 1985.[21]

The house Jacqueline de Ribes contributes to the positive image of the active French woman, business-woman, creativity and innovation at the heart of stiff competition.[22] Its design office existed in Paris, New York and Tokyo. Success was almost immediate.[23] The prestigious chain of American department stores Saks Fifth Avenue[24] asked exclusivity for three years for the United States, agreeing to fund all presentations and parades in America during this period. In Japan, the powerful Kanebo cosmetics company[25] decided to launch a concept and a trademark Jacqueline de Ribes and, to this end, opens a mansion in Tokyo, inspired by his Parisian decor, to present its collections.

For twelve years, Jacqueline de Ribes innovates by creating ready-to-wear collections whose quality is close to that of high fashion, and imposes sophisticated marketing techniques to attract a famous and elegant international clients, such as: Joan Collins, Raquel Welch, Barbara Walters, Baroness von Thyssen, Cher, Danielle Steel, Olympia de Rothschild, Marie-Hélène de Rothschild ...[26]

Her creations are applauded during shows, she received several "standing ovations" by the international press, and the most respected fashion journalists as Hebe Dorsey[27] (International Herald Tribune) or John Fairchild (Women's Wear Daily)[28] sing its praises. In 1985, WWD assigns Four Stars, placing first among the creators of the year before Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Valentino.[29]

Over the years, she became the most famous ambassador of French elegance. Following a health problem in 1995, Jacqueline de Ribes is forced to dissolve his company.

The timelessness of Jacqueline de Ribes, illuminates; particularly[30] when Emilio Pucci said, there was a very long time, it could be the new Christian Dior. In 1998, fashion designer Tom Ford,[31] said he was inspired her. Or in 1999 when Jean-Paul Gaultier's collection dedicated to her as the quintessence of Parisian elegance. Again in January 2015, in the cultural reference that represents the rare and demanding famous French Egoiste magazine,[32] Charlotte Casiraghi (daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco) is photographed by Paolo Roversi wearing a dress from the fashion house Jacqueline de Ribes.[33]

Egeria of the greatest photographers[34] Such as Penn, Horst, Avedon, Clarke,[35] Armstrong-Jones,[36] Ostier,[37] David Bailey,[38] Sieff, Slim Aarons, Mondino, [1], etc. always celebrate her pace, style and timeless elegance.

On 14 July 2010, the French President Nicolas Sarkozy decorated her as a Chevalier of the Légion d'honneur[39] at the Elysée Palace.

Then she voluntarily takes very important responsibilities and essential in the Company's Ballets du de Cuevas. First godmother of the company, she quickly became managing director and its main financial support after the death of the Marquis de Cuevas.[44] For over three years, Jacqueline de Ribes driven by his creative imagination involved in designing costumes and scenery became legendary ballets alongside Raimundo de Larrain.[45][46]

It is with the help of Jacqueline de Ribes that Rudolf Noureev[47] after his jump of Liberty at Le Bourget airport in June 1961, obtained his first contract with a private ballet troupe. Thus, he dances to the Champs-Élysées theater for the Marquis de Cuevas[48] Ballet in the Sleeping Beauty[49] and the show creates a global artistic event.

At the time, he turns "The Stranger" by Camus[52] in Algeria with Marcello Mastroianni.

It was during this trip that Visconti asked[53] her to play the duchesse de Guermantes[54] in his next film "In Search ..." according to Marcel Proust, she agreed. Visconti sick, the movie will not happen.[55] In the seventies, she had focused her efforts on volunteers show production and co-produced the Eurovision TV shows to benefit UNICEF. For this great cause, she was responsible for convincing the biggest names in show business at the time to participate in free emissions. She managed well, putting all his energy and her time in the service of UNICEF[56] to mobilize Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Marlon Brando, Danny Kaye, Peter Ustinov, Shirley MacLaine, Ravi Shankar, Johnny Hallyday and Choirs of Red Army, among others ...
