>> Miuccia Prada doesn't agree with the way the Costume Institute is comparing her with Elsa Schiaparelli in its upcoming exhibit. "It's too formal; they are focused on similarities, comparing feather with feather, ethnic with ethnic, but they are not taking into consideration that we are talking about two different eras, and that [Schiaparelli and I] are total opposite," Prada said backstage at her menswear show this past weekend in Milan. "I told them, but they don't care." The exhibit, entitled Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada: On Fashion, opens May 10 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
