An illustrated survey of the fashion and costumes of the French actress Jacqueline Delubac. Delubac was a major collector of modern art, but also turned her sophisticated taste to fashion. She was the epitome of the elegant Parisian woman and was dressed by the most important designers of the twentieth century. Dominique Sirop's text is accompanied by many archival photographs and fashion illustrations. With reflections by Azzedine Alaia, Jean-Claude Brialy, Pierre Cardin, Hanae Mori, Emanuel Ungaro and Paolo Vallorz.
