Notorious and Notable: 20th Century Women of Style highlights 80 prominent New York women who used their style, talent, or wealth to capture the attention of society and the media. The exhibition features a runway of original attire—much of it created by the most important designers of their times—and an impressive selection of jewelry crafted from the dawn of the 20th century to its close.
As you probably read, Public Schools Chancellor Cathie Black lent the museum her $47,600 Bulgari Allegra bracelet, in retrospect, not the best PR move. Her bracelet was displayed in a glass case along with some other women’s equally impressive baubles. If you missed the exhibit (it closed yesterday), here’s your chance to see the famous Allegra bracelet.
