Models Galore at the Met

We went to the Models As Muse: Embodying Fashion press preview today at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and we couldn’t help but pine for the days when lithe, doe-eyed supermodels ruled fashion magazines before celebrities took over the fashion pages over. We spotted Marc Jacobs (whose eponymous company is sponsoring the event) giving interviews to innumerable eager reporters. Though Jacobs is certainly worthy of the high-wattage attention, the real star of the exhibition are the genetically lucky, impossibly leggy, and astoundingly gorgeous women that we have come to intimately know just by their first names. Whether its Dovima, Janice, Iman, Claudia, Naomi, Christy, Kate, Cindy, Linda, Natalia, Daria, and Gisele, you can pay tribute to their invaluable contributions to fashion. The exhibit runs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art from May 6, 2009 to August 9, 2009.
