Model As Muse


I was really excited to go to the Metropolitan Museum’s new exhibition, The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion (ending August 9th). The exhibit teleports you back through the decades, starting in 1947 and ending in ‘97. The exhibit is structured so that first each section is depicted through photos of the supermodels representative of the said era, and then mannequins portray the decades with outfits and pounding music to match. As you wander through the time warp, you’ll see the most influential models and photos that have altered to industy to date. Each room features vintage issues of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. You can even see the 1966 issue of British Vogue when Donyale Luna became the first-ever black “Cover Girl.” There is surely something for everyone, whether it be aluminum dresses or exquisite Avedons.
