A Video Tour of the Costume Institute's ‘Superheroes’ Exhibit

We know you've been meaning to go to the Met and check out the Costume Institute's new “Superheroes” exhibit, but you just haven't had the time. That's where we come in! We sent resident superhero expert and Vulture editor Dan Kois for a video tour of the exhibit with curator Andrew Bolton. Bolton shows off clothes by designers like Thierry Mugler, Giorgio Armani, and Dolce & Gabbana and gives insight into the collection, noting that Catwoman's costume was born from sadomasochistic inspirations and calling superheroes flamboyant. Watch and find out which costume he labels the "ultimate dandy."
