|McQueen vs Prada|
I didn't really understand what the exhibition was trying to evoke and maybe nothing at all as like I said, it is not to be compared with last year's Savage Beauty. I just like what's pretty and chic. I would recommend one to read about the exhibition a little more beyond what is on the Met website prior to going to the exhibition so you can fully understand what the curators have envisioned and appreciate it a little more. Here's a nice article from the New York times giving a little background about Schiaparelli and Prada and their work.
If for any reason this post has been removed or taken down, it's probably because these pictures were taken ninja-style as pictures were not permitted. It did not stop me neither at last year at Savage Beauty , twice!

I thought these shoes were a museum shop gimmick but they do exist as they were in the exhibition.
The shoes are from Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
