MODEL MUSINGS: Marc Jacobs and Harold Koda stood against the backdrop of the iconic 1990 British Vogue cover by Peter Lindbergh featuring Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Tatiana Patitz and Cindy Crawford, on Wednesday morning to disclose details of the Costume Institute’s upcoming spring exhibit “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion.” The exhibit will span from Dior’s New Look to the late Nineties, and Koda and co-curator Kohle Yohannan based selections mainly on editorial models arranged by decade, from Dovima and Veruschka to Patti Hansen and Lisa Taylor, and the women best known as supermodels today. Koda recalled one of his first conversations with Jacobs, recalling how Kate Moss walked in his seminal grunge collection for Perry Ellis. “Kate is a muse to many designers,” Jacobs said, citing Yves Saint Laurent’s famous quote “A good model can advance fashion by 10 years.”
One thing that wasn’t discussed, though, was the musical performance that’s become quite a tradition at the Costume Institute benefit. How about tapping George Michael to belt out “Freedom ’90” that night?
