Punk: Chaos To Couture Met Exhibit Proves To Be A Huge Hit!

Punk-themed Met Costume Institute exhibit is in the top five of most successful exhibits!

Not that we doubted it or anything, but this year's Met Costume Institute exhibition was very popular with patrons!

It officially closed this week and approximately 442,350 people visited the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit, which is an additional 100,000 visitors more when compared to last year's Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibit. That one only drew 339,838 peeps.

Maybe the punk theme proved to be more exciting than Prada, but we bet this year's magnificent Met Gala also had something to do with helping to attract eyeballs!

After all, who could forget the insane outfits and hairdos from that night??? We know some of those images are burned into our retinas FOR LIFE!

The punk-y exhibit lands in the top five of Met exhibits of the past 25 years, with the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit still holding the top spot, followed by Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy, the Jackie O show in 2001, and the Chanel show in 2005.

We imagine Anna Wintour is toasting the news of this success at the Conde Nast offices right now!

The Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art was a hit — and that's putting it lightly.

During its 3 month run, the retrospective was seen by an astounding 661,509 visitors, making it the most-visited exhibit created by the Costume Institute.

It also earned the title of the 8th most popular exhibit in the Met's 141 year history.

Amazing!
