The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “China Through The Looking Glass” exhibition now at their Costume Institute and the Anna Wintour Costume Center is so gorgeous, in every way, from fashions to the Stephen Jones head treatments to the presentation by the curator, Andrew Bolton, that Chinese fashions will soon be the rage. The must-see exhibition, worth a trip to New York City all by itself, is on until August 16, 2015.

Shown here, Top Left, evening dress by Valentino SpA, from the 2013 “Shanghai” collection.  Bottom Left, John Galliano’s couture dress for the House of Dior, Autumn/Winter 1997/98.  Right: Ralph Lauren’s jacket of red silk shantung and black silk satin embroidered with polychrome silk and gold metallic thread, Autumn/Winter 2011/12. Head treatment by Stephen Jones. For more Chinese inspiration from the very beginning of the exhibition, click HERE
