Just before the launch of her bizarre Project Runway-but-with-modern-art reality show and hot on the heels (puns!) of Sex in the City 2, Sarah Jessica Parker has continued to secure her art/fashion legacy with the news that she’s recorded the audio tour for the Met‘s upcoming exhibition, “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity” which, of course, will be in the museum’s Costume Institute. Women’s Wear Daily broke the news, saying Parker had recorded the tour last Tuesday, just in time for the opening on May 5th. The exhibit is set to run through until August 15th, so you have all spring and summer to get in there and stick her in your ear holes. Here’s the museum’s description of the exhibit:
The exhibition will explore developing perceptions of the modern American woman from the 1890s to the 1940s, and how they have affected the way American women are seen today. Focusing on archetypes of American femininity through dress, the exhibition will reveal how the American woman initiated style revolutions that mirrored her social, political, and sexual emancipation. Early mass-media representations of American women established the fundamental characteristics of American style — a theme that will be explored via a multimedia installation in the final gallery.
You can get a sneak peek on May 3rd, when the Costume Institute holds their Gala Benefit, which is being co-chaired this year by Oprah Winfrey, Patrick Robinson, and Anna Wintour. Though if you haven’t already gotten your invitation, and therefore would have already know all that, it’s probably a sign that you won’t be attending.
