The new "The Model as Muse" exhibit opened last week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art celebrating some of the world's most beautiful women and showing how ideals of beauty have evolved. The exhibit at the museum's Costume Institute traces high fashion and its models from post-World War Two haute couture to grunge and minimalism of the 1990s, with iconic photographs, magazine covers, advertisements, clothes, music and film clips to illustrate each distinctive era. The show explores the power of clothing, fashion photography and models to project images of beauty over the years, its curators said at a preview for the media. Launched by fashion designer MARC JACOBS, the exhibit, "Models as Muse: Embodying Fashion," is on view from May 6 through August 9, 2009.
The window display at Bergdorf Goodman also has the same theme.
