You Must See This New Fashion Exhibition

notorious-and-notable-big
The Museum of the City Of New York is not exactly the Met Costume Institute, but in the case of this new exhibition, Notorious and Notable: 20th Century Women of Style , it sure comes close. The show highlights 80 socially "important" New York women who seduced the media and the public with their sheer wealth, style, jewels, and talent. With a runway of one-of-a-kind pieces, and some serious bling, you'll get an inside peek at the wardrobes of everyone from Isadora Duncan and Lauren Bacall to Jackie Kennedy and Babe Paley. What's so fascinating about the show is that besides the clothes-candy, it illuminates an era where women actually owned their couture. For a more in-depth look at what you should be taking notes on, peep this excellent review from the New York Times —there...you've filled your culture quota for the month.
