Charles James: Beyond Fashion
05 . 06 . 14
I really thought I was going to love the Charles James: Beyond Fashion exhibition today at The Metropolitan Museum of Art but I found it underwhelming. The gowns and other pieces are beautiful but the pitch black rooms with strange futuristic cameras was distracting and disappointing. I would have loved to have seen the dresses mixed with period furniture and more creative backdrops.
It was fun though to see the preparations for the Met Gala that was held Monday night. The flowers never disappoint and were especially stunning this year. As you’ll see below, someone else liked them too.
