NEW YORK — For the opening of its "Goddess" exhibit in April, the Costume Institute has landed an appropriate benefit co-chair: Nicole Kidman.
The actress will join Gucci Group creative director Tom Ford and Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour as co-chairs of the annual Costume Institute benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on April 28, which will preview the May 1 opening of its "Goddess" show. The exhibit will examine the influence of classical dress on art and fashion throughout history, from ancient Greece to Madame Grès’ draping to Versace loincloths, and might even include a look or two from Kidman’s personal wardrobe.
