Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (1873 – 1954). French novelist and performer.
She is best known for her novel Gigi, upon which Lerner and Loewe based the stage and film musical comedies of the same title.
There is a long and fascinating story about her colorful life and career with male and female partners on Wikipedia
