About the Book



The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute exhibition is the most spectacular event of its kind. Each exhibition draws a provocative and engaging narrative attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors. Covering the Costume Institute's history and highlighting exhibitions of the twenty-first century curated by Harold Koda and Andrew Bolton, this book offers insider access of the first order. Anchored by photographs from the exhibitions themselves in tandem with the Vogue fashion shoots they inspired, it also includes images of exhibited objects and party photos from the annual opening night galas.



Book Synopsis



An updated and expanded edition, covering the past five years of the Met Costume Institute's exhibitions and galas through the lens of Vogue

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibition is the most prestigious of its kind, featuring subjects that both reflect the zeitgeist and contribute to its creation. Each exhibition--from 2005's Chanel to 2011's Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty and 2012's Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations--creates a provocative and engaging narrative drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors. This updated edition includes material from 2015's China: Through the Looking Glass, 2018's Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination (the most visited exhibition in the museum's history), and 2019's Camp: Notes on Fashion. The show's opening-night gala, produced in collaboration with Vogue magazine, is regularly referred to as the party of the year, and draws a glamorous A-list crowd, drawing an unrivaled mix of Hollywood fashion. This updated edition of Vogue and the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute once again invites you into the stunning spectacle that comes when fashion and art meet at The Met.
