Funny story…remember when I shared THIS post back in December about visiting Philadelphia during the holidays? In that post I said that I would be doing a separate post all about my trip to The Philadelphia Museum of Art. Well, it looks like I never did it (insert shocked emoji face). I honestly didn’t even realize it until I was deleting photos from my camera last weekend and went “Did I ever even share these photos on the blog?”. Yikes.
Since I’m heading to Philly next weekend, I thought I might as well (finally) share more about my visit to The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Spoiler Alert: I’m breaking this post into two parts!
Part one (this post) will focus solely on the Fabulous Fashion: From Dior’s New Look to Now exhibit. Part two (HERE) will focus on the Little Ladies: Victorian Fashion Dolls and the Feminine Ideal exhibit. And serve as an overall recap of my visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Not gonna lie, the main reason I even visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art was to see THIS exhibit.
The Fabulous Fashion: From Dior’s New Look to Now exhibition opened at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on October 16, 2018 and ran until March 3, 2019. (Yes, I know I’m sharing this post super late. Don’t judge me).
This exhibit featured some of Dior’s most iconic, creative, beautiful and innovative designs to date. Some of which that had never been previously displayed to the public before!
Can you imagine opening your closet and seeing these outfits? I LIVE!
Although these outfits aren’t my style per say, and I know I personally couldn’t pull them off, I think they are STUNNING. I love the pops of color.
I NEED both of these outfits ASAP! These just scream my name/personal style. (Hey, I am a spring baby after all!).
Imagine being that chic. Because I can’t.
I don’t know why but I always love when high end fashion brands design pantsuits or pants in general. It’s a nice departure for the typical evening/ball gown look.
Would you say yes to the dress(es)?
You guys, the photo is NOT doing this gown justice. It was absolutely breathtaking in person. I loved the little touch of adding the long gloves. Beautiful!
The colors. The patterns. The way it somehow all works together? Bravo!
I’m so glad I got to see this amazing exhibition in person. It did NOT disappoint. Be sure to check out part two of this post/the entire recap of my trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art HERE!
See you next week Philly!
