Clothes Candy

Dior Haute Couture Evening CoatIn the past, I've frowned upon the Metropolitan Museum of Art's mounting exhibitions that spotlight fashion. However, a recent Vogue spread in which contemporary designers reimagined the clothes of Paul Poiret has me chomping at the bit (or hemline) for the opening of "Poiret: King of Fashion" on May 9. Poiret (1879-1944) is known primarily for liberating women from the corset. The textures, the cuts, the details in these photos leave me salivating. (Images via Vogue magazine)
