Serious Eye Candy Ahead

 Get ready for lots of pictures from an amazing exhibition, "High Style: The Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection," which was on view at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. Absolutely stunning! Alas, I didn't take notes, so some of these beauties will be unidentified.

 I think this is Schiaparelli...
 This is Madame Gres.

 Yves Saint-Laurent...

 This, I know, is Dior.

 Maybe Claire McCardell...

 These are Arnold Scaasi.

 And the showstopper? Charles James, whose gowns are really more like architectural creations. They are beyond gorgeous! They have really cool videos showing how these amazing concoctions were constructed.

Amazing. There is a massive catalogue that accompanies this exhibition, if you're interested.
