We always knew fashion was our favorite art form. Over the weekend, we filled you in on the Chanel Mobile Art Exhibit in NYC. Today we have a must see for you west coasters: the Yves St. Laurent, Eternal Style exhibit which opened on Saturday at the M.H. de Young Museum in San Francisco. The exhibit is a 40 year retrospective of YSL's designs and includes 125 outfits designed by the fashion genius who passed away last June.
The exhibit includes Yves St. Laurent's sketches; a look at his early designs including the revolutionary 'Le Smoking' tuxedo jacket for women; his colorful, exotic clothes that were inspired by his travels to Russia, Morocco and China as well as his ode to pop art, including his famous Mondrian dress.
The Eternal Style exhibit is open now through April 9. To buy tickets in advance, click here.
And here's another exhibit for the east coast crowd.
Ever dream about spending a night at the museum? Those who answered yes are in luck. NYC's Guggenheim Hotel has a "Revolving Hotel Room" installation going on now through January 7. For $299 to $550 a night, you can sleep in the museum's rotating hotel room in a bed that rotates every two hours. You can wander the museum all night long, take advantage of the minibar and have a room service breakfast of croissants and coffee. Of course, you'll be kicked out of bed at 8:30 so the museum can open to the public. The exhibit is partly funded by the Waldorf-Astoria, so at least your "room" will have a robe and slippers.
