Madonna attended the 2009 Costume Institute Gala in New York yesterday night. The Material Girl paid tribute to the gala's Honorary chair, Marc Jacobs, by sporting a blue mini dress he designed for Louis Vuitton's fall collection, along with thigh - high sexy black boots.
'The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion', the spring 2009 exhibition organized by New York's Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will take place at The Tisch Galleries from May 6 to August 9 and explores the reciprocal relationship between high fashion and evolving ideals of beauty, focusing on iconic fashion models in the latter half of the 20th century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring, the fashion of their respective eras.
Included as part of the exhibition are photographs by Steven Meisel, Gilles Bensimon, Patrick Demarchelier, Annie Leibovitz, Peter Lindbergh, Helmut Newton, Francesco Scavullo, Bert Stern and Ellen von Unwerth, who all got to collaborate on various Madonna photoshoots during the past years.
