savage beauty extended to august 7th

the “alexander mcqueen: savage beauty” exhibit has been such a smash hit for the met that they’ve extended the end date from july 31st to august 7th.  and they’re also only opening the exhibit on mondays from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm, when the rest of the museum is closed (for those willing to fork out an extra $50).

on opening day, about 5,100 people visited the exhibit and the museum was forced to suspend guided tours due to the crowd volume.  this was the most trafficked opening day for any exhibit in the museum’s history since it opened in 2005.

even with the extension, i doubt i’ll ever be able to the exhibit since i was just in nyc and just missed the opening.  thankfully, my friends bought the book for me for my birthday (thanks again!  this book’s actually sold out on amazon right now!).  i can’t wait to read it…you know, once i’m done studying and taking the gmat…

i haven’t taken it out of the shrink wrap yet but it’s pretty cool because it has a holographic cover.

also, alexander mcqueen has begun pre-saling for their first cut (40% off) of spring 2011 collection.  i already asked about the scarf i so desperately want, but since it’s limited edition, it won’t be included.  they said it’s only selling while the exhibit’s up and then any excess inventory after would be shipped to the met. =(  i’m considering getting it anyways but it’s so expensive…
