Gaddafi Thinks He Deserves His Own Retrospective At The Met

muammar-gaddafi-wants-own-retrospective-at-the-met.jpg

For reals?

A representative for Muammar Gaddafi, or at least someone claiming to be, fired off a letter to T magazine's Horacio Silva asking for his help in getting the Libyan president his own retrospective at The Met in 2013.

According to the rep, the Met has already expressed "intense interest" in the proposal, but thinks the fashion editor could seal the deal for them.

The letter reads:

"We would like to offer you the opportunity, Mr. Horacio, when it is convenient to do so to be our guest for an all expenses paid trip to Tripoli and peruse of President's collection with a view to curating a stylish retrospective of his fashion highlights at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. We believe this will not only cement his unique reputation but bring about closeness in the Pan African/Arab & Western relations through this major historical cultural event."

Along with the two pages of gibberish, the writer included four pages of pictures to highlight Gaddafi's sartorial range.

Yeah, we don't think Anna Wintour's going to go for this shiz.

And in case you were wondering, Horacio kindly rejected their offer.

Smart move.

She may be getting old, but Kate Moss still knows how to strike a fierce pose!

For the month of May, Harper's Bazaar UK is celebrating The Met's Alexander McQueen retrospective with a double cover issue featuring his friend and muse in both an old and new design.

In her cover on the right, Kate dons the same ruffled organza dress she wore while appearing as a hologram at McQueen's Fall 2006 show.

For the second cover, the supermodel posed in a white gown designed by Sarah Burton.

Both of shots are equally gorgeous, but there's something about the organza dress that's so captivating.

Which do U like???

Get your tickets, Kelly Cutrone!

Antwerp's Mode Museum is holding a fashion retrospective of the color black.

The city of Antwerp holds the dark color close to their black little hearts because they were notorious for dyeing fabrics that color in the 16th and 17th centuries.

The exhibit, titled "Black. Masters of Black in Fashion & Costume" features pieces from designers including Ann Demeulemeester, Olivier Theyskens and Dirk Van Saene, as well as pieces from couture houses like Givenchy, Chanel and avant-garde designer Gareth Pugh.

The retrospective will go black until August 8th of this year.
