Last week my husband and I went to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Right now on special exhibit is The Model as a Muse: Embodying Fashion. I sorta felt like the exhibit covered the evolution of fashion since the beginning of fashion magazines with my favorite error being the 70’s. I guess I’m a fan of big hair! If it hadn’t been for the swarms of people I probably would have ogled over all the photography a bit more. The clothing was fun to see as well but I can easily get lost in the photos.

Exploring the reciprocal relationship between high fashion and evolving ideals of beauty, The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion focuses on iconic models of the twentieth century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring, the fashion of their respective eras. The exhibition, organized by historical period from 1947 to 1997, will feature haute couture and ready-to-wear masterworks accompanied by fashion photography and video footage of models who epitomized their epochs.

The exhibit ends August 9. You can see more images here.
