WW: Heavenly Bodies at the Met Cloister

Heavenly Bodies at the Met Cloister

Have you been to the museum lately?

Weeks before I go back home to Indonesia, I spent so much time strolling around the museums at NYC.

One of the most outstanding exhibitions I have enjoyed so far is Heavenly Bodies, Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.

This top-notch exhibition is beautifully showcased at the Met Fifth Avenue and the Met Cloisters museums.

Curated by one and only Anna Wintour (for sure you have heard of her or her version at the Devil wears Prada :)), you will see how incredible the exhibition is.

Those fascinating dresses are beautifully positioned among the permanent collection of the Cloister. Beautiful, religious, yet extravagant.

Check out some of the photos I took I there.

Join us on (almost) Wordless Wednesday and have fun with the linky party :)
