MODELS: The Body of Fashion

The history of models in fashion has evolved from the first photographs in the 19th century to today’s obsessive culture in which a model’s face is as important as her name.

Mannequin Le Corps de la Mode (aka Models The Body of Fashion) is on view until 8pm today at Les Docks in Paris. And yes as a habitual last-minute museum visitor, this is coming in a tad late. Lucky for you I was able to nab a nice assortment of photos from the exhibit. Organized by the Musée Galliera, it features 120 photos, 40 magazines and 10 films spanning 2 rooms. The exhibit features works from photographers Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, Nick Knight and Juergen Teller, to name a few. What I found most interesting about the exhibit was the transition from models being simply haute couture clothes hangers, into cover girls, top models ultimately stars. As an added bonus, I could not get over the 1960s video (pictured above) featuring models in jailbird stripes.. S13 Marc Jacobs anyone? A solid proof that there’s no time limit on inspiration!
