“China: Through the Looking Glass”

You’ve probably seen Rihanna’s spectacular dress she wore to the Met Gala earlier this week, and maybe you’ve seensome of the memes it produced, making it into an omelette, Big Bird, and the yellow brick road from “The Wizard of Oz.”
The gala is an annual event to raise money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art and to kick off its annual costume fashion exhibition, which this year is about China. Some of the women at the gala were wearing dresses by Chinese or Chinese-American designers, and many wore dresses inspired by Chinese art and culture.

Here’s an 8-minute video about the exhibition:

And here is the Met’s page, where you can get more information. If you have plans to visit New York City during summer vacation, and if you’re interested in fashion, costumes and China, this looks like something fascinating to see.
