You know you fucking own fashion when the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute renames itself after you. Feel that Wintour chill?
Nearly two years have passed since the Met’s Costume Institute began it’s $40 million dollar face lift and finally this Spring will be its reopening. “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” will be the first exhibit featured when doors open on May 8th in the new institute which includes a brand new gallery and costume conservation lab; as well as a new name. The Anna Wintour Costume Center. (Give me a minute to catch my breath.)
Fucking Wintour, editor and chief of Vogue if you needed to be told, has been a Met trustee since ’99 and has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for the Costume Institue. Not to mention making the Met’s annual costume gala the MUST-ATTEND fashion event of every year. (One day…) She should be every woman’s idol.
Make sure to visit the Anna Wintour Costume Center in early Summer when you’re in NYC.
