Blogging the Costume Institute's ‘Blog.mode’ Exhibit

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute's "blog.mode" exhibit opens today, and to give you a sneak peek, we sent our Fabiola Beracasa to check it out. Click above to watch as curator Andrew Bolton explains how hooker boots from the twenties influenced modern fashion and why the controversial "Incubus Necklace" was impounded by police the first time it was shown to the public.

Update: You may be wondering, as we were, why the Costume Institute exhibition is actually called "blog.mode: addressing fashion." It's because the exhibit is interactive, and you can write about your reactions and inspirations at a "blog bar" in the museum. Mmm. Blog Bar. Sounds unhealthy and delicious.
