The Model As Muse: Embodying Fashion - Gallery Views

Exploring the reciprocal relationship between high fashion and evolving ideals of beauty, The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion focuses on iconic models of the twentieth century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring, the fashion of their respective eras. The exhibition, organized by historical period from 1947 to 1997, will feature haute couture and ready-to-wear masterworks accompanied by fashion photography and video footage of models who epitomized their epochs.

This video takes us through the show’s galleries, introducing the magazines and the models, the iconic images and the iconoclasts, the photographs, videos, spreads, films, and women that defined the fashion of the post-war twentieth century.
