The Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art spring exhibit called Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy kicks off on May 7th. The exhibit, spearheaded by the work of young super model, Coco Rocha, is being sponsored by Giorgio Armani.
The May issue of US Vogue magazine also features a robotic Gwyneth Paltrow as well as other American-inspired female superhero styles.
Featured in Vogue is Catwoman in a molded corset, leg and arm pieces, Swarovski-crystal-studded mask and Christian Louboutin for Rodarte spiked heels. There is also Batman's mortal enemy Poison Ivy in Nina Ricci's bustier dress with feather "leaves" and "drops" of Swarovski-crystal "venom."
Next there is another Batman-inspired zippered leather-and-cashmere suit made for Vogue by Rick Owens. Then there is the genetically engineered feather winged Dawnstar in custom sequined Dior and finally we have a model sporting an Armani prive shiny silk dress recalling the Silver Surfer's metallic skin.
Out of this world stuff.
