About Jackie Siegel:

Jackie Siegel earned the title “Queen” for her role in the award-winning documentary feature, “The Queen of Versailles,” which continues to captivate audiences globally. The documentary, unveiled at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012, is one of Netflix’s most-watched movies and holds a coveted spot on Vogue’s list of the “66 Best Documentaries of All Time.”

Jackie and her husband, David Siegel, embarked on an ambitious journey to build the largest private residence in the United States, the legendary Versailles. The soaring ambition faced the challenges of the ’08 recession, and this grand project’s captivating rise and fall were brought to life in the critically acclaimed 2012 documentary.

Jackie’s enchanting presence in pop culture has earned her features in major media outlets, including Us Weekly and People Magazine. She’s graced the screens of hit television shows like Bravo’s “Flipping Out,” “Below Deck,” “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” ABC’s “Nightline,” and “The Doctors.”

Beyond her media career, Jackie Siegel is an influencer, philanthropist, and devoted wife to Westgate Resorts Founder and CEO David Siegel. She also serves on the Board of Directors for the Westgate Resorts Foundation. As the former Mrs. Florida America, Jackie actively engages with the national Mrs. America organization and strongly advocates for Victoria’s Voice Foundation and its mission to save lives.

In 2022, cameras returned to Jackie’s life and the Versailles mansion with the Discovery+ original series, “Queen of Versailles Reigns Again,” now streaming. This captivating series offers the first look inside her home since the original documentary premiered a decade ago and documents a vast renovation project, including the completion of five kitchens, a 35-car garage, a 150-person dining room, a grand ballroom, and even the family’s British-style pub.

Jackie Siegel’s presence at OIFW promises to bring a touch of her unique glamour and style to this already spectacular event. Her participation adds an exciting dimension to an already highly anticipated fashion, art, and culture showcase.
