Superheroes at the Met
Summer equates to fun, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art 's new exhibit Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy captures just that. The fashion party of all parties, the Costume Institue Gala, celebrated the opening of the exhibit Monday night with super-celebrities, many who had their own renditions of superhero outfits. It was highly appropriate since the exhibit discusses the relationship between costumed superheroes and high fashion designers. From Balenciaga to Versace, you will find around 60 items of highly intellectual fashion inspired by favorite superheroes of comic books' past.
