Moiré mourning gowns.

Stopped by the Metropolitan Museum this morning for a quick peek at the Costume Institute's latest — a sumptuous all-black show that brought me back to my design-school Gothic Lolita days. Jet beads, veils, fingerless gloves, and jaunty hats... and that Victorian flair for the dramatic. Enjoy!
