THE MET HONORS ANNA WINTOUR

anna wintour

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s newly renovated Costume Institute has been renamed the Anna Wintour Costume Center. The Vogue editor in chief and Condé Nast artistic director has been a Met trustee since 1999, raising roughly $125 million for the prestigious institute. Between that and raising $40 million for the renovations alone, Ms. Wintour’s name was an easy candidate for the incredible honor. When the institute reopens its doors on May 8th, it will include a 4,200-square-foot main gallery, a refurbished costume conservation laboratory and expanded study and storage facilities.

Be sure to check out Anna Wintour as a judge in Ovation’s new series The Fashion Fund, premiering this Wednesday at 10PM ET.
