Look closely at the faces of the mannequins...Projection lighting at it's finest I might say.
The train of the gown in detail.
This was a similar dress that Marion Cotillard wore and up close you saw that craftsmanship of each applique cut out to form scales.
I love this little element of the dress which was the golden heart made out of chains.
Same dress zoomed out with heavy beading.
Mermaid on crutches...Okay, it's still pretty cool though.
This was so far, my favorite nautical look. I mean how can you not appreciate a good pattern as well as some good cleavage to show off.
The next room was much darker and I might say a little more conceptual. But I'd rather be amazed, than be bored.
Bodice and train were all constructed with boning.
The infamous Beyoncé ensemble (On another note, I'm surprised her waist is that small)
This little number was constructed by boning, but it was covered in little roses.
This gown was intense because it was completely draped with ribbons and I have to applaud the seam stresses who carefully sewed the strips of ribbon together.
Note: There was a Madonna Section, but the lighting was so dim I couldn't take any photos of Madonna's infamous Gaultier Bustier. This is why you have to go see the exhibition for yourself.
The room after that obviously transitioned to Runway pieces. And as usual, it was important for more to look at all of the details within the garments.
This gown was infamously worn by Gael Garcia Bernal in the Artsy Spanish Flick, "La Mala Educacion." The nipples, belly button and bush were heavily beaded so you couldn't ignore this one at all.
I'm glad the exhibiton included the flower gown worn by past Plus Size Model, Crystal Renn. Big Girls need to be included too.
More closeups. Your'e Welcome.
A stunning Denim Bustier with boning and on the bottom were tassels cascading around the floor.
For any jewelry mavens, that elbow cuff is so popular on Pinterest.
You could only pull off this look in the 90s ofcourse.
