The Most Dressed: Striking a Pose
What happens when fashion week collides with the Armory Show and the fall art season? Lots of parties, of course.
Three big museum openings took place on Sept. 8, including the Wolfgang Tillmans retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. Nearby, the Museum of Arts and Design celebrated the costume designer Machine Dazzle; the bohemian crowd took the exhibit’s queer maximalism theme to new heights. And David LaChapelle celebrated his first major solo exhibition in North America at Fotografiska.
On Monday, LaQuan Smith held an after-party at the Blond. It was a more intimate affair than his previous blowouts, with Madonna, Lourdes Leon and Diplo showing their support.
‘I wanted to dress for the occasion, but also not overdress.’ — Wolfgang Tillmans at his MoMA opening
‘It’s a jacket that was designed for me by artist Scooter LaForge. I felt it was in the Machine Dazzle spirit.’ — Michael Musto at the Museum of Arts and Design
‘I dressed for David. I felt it was very LaChapelle colorful, stylish, wacky, fun and individualistic.’ — Susanne Bartsch at Fotografiska
The Most Dressed features great outfits from up, down and all around town.
