TOGA PARTY: After bowing out of the gala-show hoopla this year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is planning a dramatic return of its Costume Institute Gala on April 28, 2003, with a title sponsor already in place. Gucci has signed on to host the "Party of the Year" and the Met’s upcoming "Goddess" exhibit, which explores how classical dress has inspired and influenced art and fashion throughout the ages.

"Classical revivals in dress are a mainstay not only of contemporary fashion, but are also found throughout costume history," said Harold Koda, curator of the Costume Institute. "We’re going to track the Greco-Roman authority back through the Empire, Rococo and Baroque periods." The exhibit will even take a look at Hollywood’s representation of the classical past, as seen in Isadora Duncan’s dance performances for "Medea" and "Gladiator."
