Sarah Jessica Parker is the Voice of Fashion
it is official:
Sarah Jessica Parker is the voice of fashion.
according to WWD, the actress and style icon will be the voice for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new audio guide tour on "Costume: The Art of Dress."
in the first audio guide by the Costume Institute, and available at the museum from Nov. 25, Parker will guide visitors through approximately 20 pieces of art from the permanent collection, including historical garments, as well as costumes depicted in paintings and sculptures. Parker taped the audio tour in a recording studio in the summer.
"looking beyond our encyclopedic collection of costume to the museum’s other treasures puts clothing into a historical context," Costume Institute curator-in-charge Harold Koda said. "walking through the galleries listening to Sarah Jessica Parker’s narration will bring a sense of discovery and delight to the experience."
sounds like it will be quite the experience (sorry...had to do it)!
what do you think: will this make you more interested in going to see the exhibit? let me know in the comments!
