C'est American Chic: A Full Week of Fabulous Day 3

Monday, July 26, 2010
After my first incredible day in NYC I have to say that there is truly no city like it. Even though I've been there before, it's always full of new and exciting surprises. Today I checked out the American Woman: Fashioning A National Identity exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Thanks to my lovely grandmother, I managed to get a behind the scenes tour when the museum was closed and the only people allowed in were staff and their special guests. The exhibit is one of the most incredible that the museum has ever done, in my opinion the only rival being last years' The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion. The exhibit also doesn't allow photography, so the ones shown here will probably not be found anywhere else. I hope you all enjoy one of the coolest, most inspirational, most beautiful exhibits I've ever seen anywhere.

I apologize for the blurriness of this photo, It says Bohemian, 1990s.

My favorite headpieces in the exhibit were the ones in the flapper exhibit. All wigs and headpieces were designed by Julien d'Ys.

I believe the pictures are mostly self explanatory. These pictures do not by any means do the exhibit justice. If you have the chance, you should really try to check it out before it closes on August 15. Now for some more classic Met stuff...

Some annoyingly blurry pictures of me at the Met.

Me in front of the new Met flowers! Every week a crew switches them with a new theme of flowers, thiss week is tropical with lots of birds of paradise.

The new front desk flowers, still under construction.

Nobody does it like the Empire State! More tomorrow!

What a great idea to do a post on this MoMA exhibit! I was just in NY myself and saw the same exhibit - and loved it! I thought it was a really interesting topic and glad that MoMA covered it.

p.S. love your hair and outfit - I find thatpeople at the MoMA are usually so chic! I love it.

You mean MMoA? The Metropolitan Museum of Art not the Museum of Modern Art. :)
