(NEW YORK) Michelle Obama watchers, start your countdown. With Oprah Winfrey on board to host the 2010 Costume Institute gala, American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity, one question on everyone’s mind is sure to be whether or not the First Lady will make an appearance. Of course, the show itself will be quite a draw as well; the exhibition is the first drawn exclusively from the new Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at the Met. “The ideal of the American woman evolved from a dependence on European, Old World ideas of elegance into an independent New World sensibility that reflected freedoms still associated with American women today,” said Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton. “The show will look at fashion’s role in defining how American women have been represented historically, and how fashion costumes women into archetypes that still persist in varying degrees of relevance.”
Fashion’s fête of the year will take place on Monday, May 3, 2010, and Gap’s Patrick Robinson and Anna Wintour will host alongside Winfrey (this will also be the first Met gala organized by Vogue’s Sylvana Soto-Ward, who took over this year after the resignation of longtime Vogue special events director Stephanie Winston Wolkoff).
