Anna Wintour at Alexander McQueen Met Exhibit

Alexander McQueen Exhibit Becomes Met's Eighth Most-Visited Show

>> The "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" exhibit — which closed at the Met's Costume Institute yesterday evening — attracted 661,509 visitors in total, making it the eighth biggest show on record in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's 141-year history (Also among the top ten: "Treasures of Tutankhamun", held in 1978; "Mona Lisa," held in 1963; and "Picasso in The Metropolitan Museum of Art," held last year.).

Nearly 80,000 people saw the McQueen exhibition during its final week, amd 15,000 walked through on Saturday alone, when the wait ranged from 90 minutes to three hours.

Anna Wintour, an elective trustee of the museum's board, made an appearance last night, signing copies of the exhibit's catalog for many guests. Last week, she said she was thrilled with the show's reception: “We knew it was going to do well, but we didn’t know how well. One of the mailroom guys told me yesterday how much he enjoyed the show. It just shows you how fashion now reaches so many different people.”

It's rumored that the exhibit may be headed to London in some capacity.
