Default beautiful ribbon flower, any ideas how to make it?

I came across this beautiful flower today. I think the center part is a rolled rosette, but any ideas on how to make the outer petals? (LOVE how pretty they make it look!!) Also, it looks very soft. What kind of ribbon do you think it is?

That's what I was thinking also! Wired satin ribbon. But that's all I've got! The flower is stunning! I've never seen one like that before.

this site has the best selection for french ombre ribbon . . . http://www.quiltersfancy.com/catalog/rib_frwire.htm

but one has to watch out for the quality/knockoffs . . . this ribbon seems underpriced - so the quality may not be as good.

That is French Ribbon---usually the genuine is 100% silk, and hand-dyed for the perfect result. Those flowers are art--usually all of the pleating (for the fortuny elements) is done by hand, one pleat at a time!

Thanks for the help ladies!! Well, at least now we know what kind of ribbon it is. That's a start. I've never used wired ribbon (I know, what's my deal, right? lol) so I really don't even know where to begin on those petals.

Would love to find a tutorial on it. It really is just gorgeous! Any idea what it would be called? I'm not even sure what to search for to try to find it.
