NEW YORK — In their Nineties heydays, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell didn’t just pose in designer clothes — they often inspired the creators behind them.
But the notion of models serving as designer muses predates that trio, and will be the subject of the spring exhibit at The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Themed “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion,” the show aims to explore fashion, and the changing ideals of beauty that accompanied different eras, from Marion Morehouse to Lisa Fonssagrives, Peggy Moffitt, Iman, Nadja Auermann and Gisele Bündchen.
