The Model As Muse

Thank goodness the supermodel craze is over. I thought  we’d never get rid of Cindy Crawford. Now, aside from her weird Raymore & Flanigan commercials, advertising denim sofas (what?), we really don’t have to see her too much anymore.

You miss her, you say? You really miss the way the same 5 models were used by every designer, in every show for ten years straight? Well,  I’ve got a solution for you. Some nostalgia, if you will. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, yesterday unveiled their new exhibition, “The Model As Muse.” It showcases Linda, Naomi, Cindy, Kate and other top models you often tend to forgot about, when they’re not in the news for throwing shoes at assistants or snorting cocaine with their Babyshambles drug-addicted boyfriends.

The show is really about the fashion and the designers, so don’t let this scare you away. There’s photography, information and of course, tons of dresses. Plus, the Met is one of the best places to go in NYC. Hands down.

The show runs until August 9, 2009.
