The Model as Muse exhibit at the Met July 11, 2009

model_as_muse_bigHurry on over to the Met before this show closes. I went with my FIT gal pals last night, and if you have an interest in either magazine or fashion history, this is a wonderful eye candy walk through the mid-20th century to now. What’s most wonderful about the show is that they have brought in the real designer garments (Balenciaga, Dior and more) that were featured in spreads, along with a pictorial history of fashion shooting through the decades. Plus, you have the music of each era in each section, so it literally is a walk down memory lane. See is through August 9. Learn more …

Cheap tip: Go on Friday night. The museum is open until 9 and it’s perfectly kosher to pay $1 admission, even though the usual fee is $20.
