This morning we attended a press conference for the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute 2009 exhibition entitled, "The Model As Muse: Embodying Fashion". We'll be bringing you red carpet photos from tonight's gala but check out our first look inside the exhibition itself. As stated by The Costume Institute, the exhibition "explores the reciprocal relationship between high fashion and evolving ideas of beauty, focusing on iconic fashion models in the latter half of the 20th century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring, the fashion of their respective eras.".
