It's Coming...


The Metropolitan Musuem of Art's Costume Gala is coming May 5th! This year the theme is "superheroes".

"Today, superhero imagery has suffused almost every aspect of popular culture," said Andrew Bolton, Curator in the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute. "The superhero's iconic costume of cape, mask, and bodysuit finds many fashionable permutations. But fashion's embrace of the superhero extends beyond iconography, to issues of identity, sexuality, and nationalism. Fashion shares with the superhero an inherent metaphorical malleability which fuels its fascination with the idea and the ideal of the superhero."

Celebrity rumored to be attending the event are Scarlett Johansson, Kate Moss, Clare Danes, Rachel Bilson, Liv Tyler, Joy Bryant, Kate Bosworth and many others. But I haven't seen Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (regulars at the event) on any lists.


The main question is "What will they be wearing?"
