… limns the declension of Ruth Madoff:

Before the scandal, Mrs. Madoff radiated an understated sense of taste. She favored slim black pants, fine-gauge white cotton crew necks, Susan Bennis Warren Edwards crocodile-leather flats and classic gold jewelry, according to a friend of the family who saw her regularly at gatherings.

Now Mrs. Madoff spends her days largely confined to the two-story four-bedroom penthouse on 64th Street near Lexington Avenue, dressed in jeans and an Oxford-style shirt, according to someone who is in touch with her regularly.

    "On weekends, fellow prisoners say, Mrs. Madoff prefers an Oxford-cloth jumpsuit with pink stripes, and is often seen sporting a new fifteen-pound lead-chromium ball with a matching filigree chain designed for her by Hermès of Paris."
