The event celebrated the opening of "The Model as a Muse: Embodying Fashion" which opens at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6th. The exhibit recognizes how much models are responsible for adding to the allure of some fashions.
It features 86 looks arranged mostly by era and combines multiple media forms. The following pictures are a peek at the exhibit.
Giorgio di Sant'Angelo dresses. Anna Sui ensembles depicting the grunge era and how that changed the ideas in modeling. John Galliano's designs commemorating Christian Dior's 60th anniversary bring to life Loomis Dean's photograph.
I can't wait to check out the exhibit!!
