Heavenly Bodies of The Met

  1. Christian Lacroix has so far designed the costumes for two opera productions here in Frankfurt, and I’m going to see one of them again next week, Adriana Lecouvreur by Francesco Cilea. I know most of the singers, including three of the women who get to wear his fantastic dresses.

    1. You are in for a treat it seems. Your friends, the singers, must be walking on air in those sumptuous Lacroix concoctions.

      1. Yes, they’re really happy about it. Next season another friend of mine, the American soprano Brenda Rae, will also get to wear a Lacroix dress when she stars in Bellini’s opera I puritani here in Frankfurt.

  2. Such fashionable attire with religious overtones. I love Angelica by Dolce and Gabbana. Sometimes, I feel like just putting on an awesome hoodie like that! – Neek 😉

  3. What fun, especially for a lapsed Catholic like me, to see these Catholic faith-inspired numbers. Can’t say I’ll be rushing out any time soon to add to my wardrobe, though that piece by Thom Browne would keep me warm in winter and perhaps allow me to fly. I’d love to see this display in person. Thanks!

    1. Thanks Caroline! You should be golden with that Thom Browne outfit. It should make for a dramatic statement. xx

  4. Spent a couple of days at The Met a few years back which was so interesting but I could’ve spent a week there. Loved your photos of the exhibition – fascinating and fabulous.

    1. Thank you, Sheree. I adored the exhibition in all its extravagance and lushness. As for The Met, I will have to go back and do it full justice. xx

  5. I would LOVE to see this. I would also love to marry Two Brains again and stroll in wearing my most serene expression and that Lacroix 😉 xx

    1. You can actually do both. Marry Two Brains again and climb up the steps of The Met in that Lacroix gown! 🙂 xx

      1. Genius DD – simply genius … fancy being my Maid of Honour … you can pick your own dress but it must be from the exhibition 😉 xx

      2. Oooh thrilled! Would the Thierry Mugler be ghastly? Barring that, the Alexander McQueen *pool of drool

  6. Mind-blowing. What a wonderful idea. Count on the Met to shake the – usual – dust of museums.

  7. Ooh this looks fascinating! I’d never really thought of fashion in the world of Catholicism. All that comes to mind is my school uniform I wore for five years while attending my Catholic high school. That ivory silk taffeta looks amazing!

  8. Hahah, going by an earlier post I reckon it must have been an achievement of sorts to land your husband at a museum for two days in a row! Well done you 😉

    On a separate note, for some weird reason it is impossible to view your posts in the reader as it shows a 404 error. I need to open your site in chrome to read your posts, which of course is always worth it, but I thought I should let you know.

    1. Thanks for letting me know, Anushree. I saw it on fb too and I wonder why. This self-hosting affair keeps throwing little googlies my way. How you cottoned on to Adi’s museum aversion 😀 But well, he married me, that is all. xx
