Josephine Baker – The world’s best dressed Woman- Jet Magazine, November 29, 1951

In November 1951 Josephine Baker graced the cover of Jet Magazine.

She is given the accolade of the World’s best dressed woman, with claims of a value of $250,000 for her wardrobe.

Whether or not this claim regarding the astronomical value of her clothes is accurate, we do know that Josephine loved to dress up.


Her fantastical costumes and her elegant dresses are a part of the Josephine on stage that the world recognises. Her elegance off stage was a constant source of fashion forward inspiration , be it the flapper dresses of the 1920’s or the controversial ‘Eton Bob’ hairstyle she championed with a range of  products.

At Marrakech Riad Star we love to add those special extra touches to bring sparkle and fun to your visit. To reflect the glamorous and playful sides of Josephine’s nature we decided to install our very own dressing up rail at Riad Star. With a wondrous selection of period dresses and hats, shoes and jackets there is a wide array of styles for men and women to enjoy wearing to embrace the spirit of Josephine Baker whilst dining in her former home in Marrakech.  If you love to holiday in style then check our availability and join us in beautiful Marrakech.
