The Costume Institute Celebrates Models With “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion" Exhibit

On Our Radar: The Costume Institute Celebrates Models

Models have paid their dues in the industry so it's high time someone pays them the respect they deserve. That someone will be The Costume Institute Gala in their upcoming presentation dubbed, "The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion,” which explores fashion, and the constantly changing ideas of beauty.

The exhibit raises the question of models serving as designer muses. Marc Jacobs, honorary chairman for the exhibit, states:

“The idea of muses or models, whether it is someone you know or someone you have seen in an image, someone of your imagination or a creature of your own invention, is important to every designer and every collection. I hate talking about inspiration, but everyone needs a catalyst. We look at this person, this model, this muse, and we design for her. It seems like a kind of fundamental thing, but wide open for lots of great clothes.”

Kate Moss, Justin Timberlake, and Anna Wintour will act as co-chairs for the event. The exhibit will run May 6 to Aug. 9 at the museum’s Tisch Galleries. Look forward to seeing photos from a wide range of models spanning the years including Twiggy, Sunny Harnett, Dorian Leigh, Jean Shrimpton, Moffitt and Veruschka, Iman and Janice Dickinson, Amber Valletta and Shalom Harlow.

yeah, Justin Timberlake doesn't seem like he would have any knowledge whatsoever about fashion - unless you count the idiotic outfits his stylist tells him to put on. not only that, but he seems like kind of an idiot with no valuable influence at all - why don't they pick a person who is actually interesting. this does sound very cool, though...
