Who knew socialite Fabiola Beracasa was such a stellar broadcast journalist? In addition to her tireless circuit of charity events, Ms. Beracasa took time out to host a sneak peek at the Met’s “blog.mode: addressing fashion” exhibit, which runs through April 13.
In this clip, Ms. Beracasa has a conversation with Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute for the past five years. And there are some very compelling featured pieces in the show: Vivienne Westwood’s bubblegum-pink gown, which was fashioned from a single piece of fabric; an interesting item designed by John Galliano for Dior; a “very controversial” item called the Incubus Necklace, which was made from five vials of human semen; and a backless, very revealing dress worn on the runway by model Sophie Dahl.
