After this year's flop, they're really stepping their game up!
This week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute announced next year's exhibit will be dedicated to punk's everlasting impact on the fashion world.
Co-chaired by Rooney Mara, Riccardo Tisci, Lauren Santo Domingo and Anna Wintour; Punk: Chaos to Couture will focus on the punk movement in London and New York.

That's a wrap!
The Met's Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibit came to a close on Sunday and attendance was wayyyy down.
Compared to last year's record-breaking Alexander McQueen exhibit, which was viewed by more than 661,000 people, only 339,838 came out to see Schiaparelli and Prada.
Even though the McQueen exhibit was extended twice, the numbers are still pretty disappointing, but not exactly surprising either.
Hopefully next year's will be more inneresting.

On Tuesday morning, Anna Wintour and a gaggle of press gathered at the Ritz in London to unveil the upcoming Alexander McQueen exhibit launching at the Met Gala on May 2nd.
The Costume Institute's curator, Andrew Bolton, said of the event:
"We drew on the McQueen archive in London and are indebted to McQueen's co-workers and colleagues for their willingness to share their memories of him. Especially Stella McCartney, whose friendship with McQueen makes her an ideal co-chair for the Costume Institute Ball, and Sarah Burton, who gave a valuable insight in to McQueen's design process over the past 14 years."
Sounds like this is going to be an amazing event!

Starting May 5th, you may hear a familiar voice guiding you through the "American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity" exhibit at NYC's Met Museum.
This past week, Sarah Jessica Parker recorded the audio guide for the new Costume Institute's exhibit.
Curator Andrew Bolton said the actress and fashionista was chosen "because of Sex and the City, she is so much associated with New York and with America, and with using fashion as a way to shape identity."
Uh huh, and the new SATC2 movie coming out had nothing to do with it.
Whatevs, it makes sense.
