Are the Kardashians going to the Met Gala 2021?
And a Fashion Week one, too…
This morning, the Annapolis native broke a Met Gala record, with three separate pieces going on display at the Costume Institute’s new exhibit, “In America: A Lexicon.” The museum’s contemporary fashion archive features some of the most famous pieces in American culture, including a denim Rosie the Riveter uniform designed by Helen Cookman, a Kurt Cobain babydoll dress by Anna Sui, and one of Donna Karan’s famous ’80s power suits.
For Siriano, that includes all ages as well as sizes. “Right now in particular, I think all of our muses are a little closer to home,” he says. “Lately, I’ve been most inspired by old photographs of my grandmother—she loved cocktail dresses, and getting dressed up, even for something casual. She was an Italian-American in Upstate Utica New York, and she lived for citrus colors, apricot, bright accessories—she had this lime green bag she took everywhere!—and also, everyone’s grandma had a little black dress. I think it taught [me] about American glamour at an early age.”
“Women want to see themselves on the runway,” Siriano said backstage, “and my big mission is to make sure they feel seen, too.”PUT 1xbet
